Fortunately, the page has an English-language option! And if I have this right, the Japanese title translates more accurately as Lord Batman, providing Batman with more of a samurai vibe.

Can I just say I called it on Roger Craig Smith playing Batman :p?

It's nice to hear Smith back as the Dark Knight though his performance here sounds different from the Arkham games and Batman Unlimited.

Tony Hale as The Joker is an unexpected twist, but he sounds like he'll be a lot of fun in the role ;).

It's also always great to have Grey Griffin as Catwoman :D.

I think this is the third time Tara Strong has played both Harley and Ivy in something...

The shifting Robin VA's is always kind of funny. First we've got Yuri Lowenthal playing Robin after playing Red Robin in Batman Unlimited, and now we've got Will Friedle moving from Nightwing to playing both Red Robin and Red Hood :rolleyes2:.

I'll be interested to hear what Eric Bauza as Two-Face sounds like, but Tatasciore as Grodd should be solid, as he should also be reprising Deathstroke from Young Justice ;).

You know I was honestly convinced we'd have an anime dub cast.
Roger Craig Smith and Yuri Lowenthal are still prolific in anime voice acting, Fred Tatasciore voiced Hulk in yen English dub of Marvel Avengers: Disk Wars, and also consider how Stephanie Sheh and Michael Sinterniklaas, who are also anime voice actors, are the voice directors for the dub.

Yeah, Smith's anime credits made me think he was probably the most likely choice to play Batman in this :).

I'm kind of surprised with Stephanie Sheh and Michael Sinterniklaas directing this that they're not playing any of the leads. I could've seen Sheh as Harley or Catwoman (heck, she played Chinese Catwoman in that DC Nation short) or Sinterniklaas as one of the Robins.

They could also be providing additional voices for what we know.

They're also the voice directors for Hanazuki , though Mike voices a few characters there.

Regarding Batman, Troy Baker could've also reprised since he's also an anime actor
