Unlike many remakes, the upcoming remake of Destroy All Humans -- appropriately titled Destroy All Humans -- will retain the original voice actors. Even better, Black Forest Games is taking the audio from the original game and is improving its quality rather than re-recording all of it. In other words, yes Richard Horvitz of Invader Zim fame will reprise his role as Orthopox and J. Grant Albrecht will be back to voice Cryptosporidium, the game's protagonist regularly referred to as simply Crypto.
“It’s the audio from the original game, with the same legendary delivery of lines from the original voice actors,” confirmed Black Forest Games.
Now, at the moment, it's a bit unclear if there will be any new audio in the game. That said, given the game is adding the new Area 52 mission, which was previously "lost," surely there's new audio and voice lines. It's all a bit unclear to be honest. Whatever the case, it seems Black Forest Games and THQ Nordic are doing their best to stay faithful to the cult-classic original.
