Bandai Namco announced that the new Saiyan featured in Dragon Ball Legends will be voiced by Alejandro Saab.
The publisher shared the Dragon Ball news on Twitter with some side-by-side images that show the mobile game’s newly-introduced Saiyan Shallot alongside Saab. Those in the replies to the tweet immediately recognized the voice actor from his work in other anime like My Hero Academia, My First Girlfriend Is a Gal, and RWBY: Volume 4.
In My Hero Academia, Saab voiced Naomasa Tsukauchi, and though many congratulated him for his first Dragon Ball debut, this actually isn’t his first time in the franchise. He’s also provided additional voices in Dragon Ball Z Kai, though this will be the first time that’s he’s taken such a prominent role in a Dragon Ball installment.
The voice actor has already listed Dragon Ball Legends as part of his Twitter bio after the announcement and gave fans his own tweet to confirm the news and provide some images from the game.
I'm so happy to announce that I'll be voicing the new character Shallot in the upcoming Dragon Ball Legends game!! This was and is a dream come true for me. I never thought I'd get the opportunity and I'm truly blessed. Stay tuned for Dragon Ball Legends coming out soon!! pic.twitter.com/SpdPqWOvmt— Alejandro Saab (@KaggyFilms) April 22, 2018
