Another voice actor shoutout - Karin's butler, Shibasaki, congratulates Punk on his recent tournament victory

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • April 11, 2017 at 10:44 a.m. PDT

Over the weekend, PG|Punk took home the gold at West Coast Warzone 6. His victory using Karin in Street Fighter 5 was praised by many in the fighting game community, and one fan created an extra special shoutout congratulating him on his achievement.

Mike DeBonis, who provides the voice for Karin's steward Shibasaki in-game, posted the message for Punk over on Twitter. In it, DeBonis goes full-Shibasaki, speaking in the character's voice to share some kind words for Punk.

You can check out the video below.

This isn't the first time a voice actor has given a shoutout to a player in their character's voice. Back in January, we saw the voice of R. Mika, Bonnie Gordon, congratulate Liquid|NuckleDu on his Capcom Cup win.

That's cool. Love how the voice actors also seem to be following the game, as well!

While I knew someone would make this comment, I was hoping EH would prove me wrong.

Do mods on this site determine whether your comments appear as "green" or "hidden?"
