UPDATE: A quote by Ryan himself has surfaced (you can see it in the comments):
Nope. No one has contacted me or my agent about doing ANY kind of voice work for SSBB. Spread the word. 🙂
And there you have it! Hopefully, any rumors of Griffith’s disappearance have been debunked, now. 😉
Those who visited the message boards lately may have noticed a topic questioning the possibility of Sonic being voiced by Ryan Drummond, who originally acted as the voice for Sonic the Hedgehog during such games as Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, and Sonic Heroes. While this was simple speculation, an interesting tidbit has popped up at the IMDB… That tidbit? Ryan Drummond on the official cast list for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Those who have been following the credits in recent Sonic games lately will have noticed that Jason Griffith normally plays the voice of Sonic, so such news is both unusual, and to some, rewarding.
But that of course draws the question: Is this “official” confirmation? Or is it just a “typo” (one bloody hell of a typo, if you ask me)? Stay tuned to Sonic News for further developments!
