We hear them every single day, screaming "HADOUKEN," muttering intro lines and wailing cries of defeat upon getting knocked out.

It's easy to take for granted the many sounds a fighting game character utters throughout the course of a match, but without the voice actors, our favorite fighting games would not have nearly the same exuberance and vitality.

Enter Cassandra Lee Morris, the voice actress for Guilty Gear Xrd's Elphelt. Morris has taken the time to share with us a glimpse of what goes into giving a character their voice box.

Morris describes a bit of the day in the life of a fighting game voice actor, noting the challenges and rewards that come with the job.

So often do we hear from those that play or design games professionally, but rarely are we privy to the perspectives from the actors who, quite literally, breathe life into the characters we love.
