Chikao Ohtsuka, not Motomu Kiyokawa, is credited in M&S Rio 2016 3DS


In other credits-related news, apparently Eggman’s previous Japanese voice actor Chikao Ohtsuka IS actually credited in the game. You can see the Japanese voice cast list at 6:51 in the video above. The info we received before was reported by a Japanese player with a copy of the game and forwarded to us in the forums by Tracker. This is the first time we’ve been able to see the credits ourselves, and there’s no sign of Motomu Kiyokawa’s name at all, so I’m at least very curious of how such a claim was made in the first place.

If we have indeed made an error, than I myself would like to deeply apologize for any misreporting of information (I did write the article about the topic in question), and hopefully we’ll get this cleared up soon enough.

Also I should note that I accidentally misspelled Chikao Ohtsuka’s name as Chikao Otsuka (without the “h” in Ohtsuka) in earlier articles. I went back and corrected the spelling in both of the previous articles I wrote about his passing. Please accept my apologies on that as well.

Eggman’s new Japanese voice actor revealed to be Motomu Kiyokawa

Motomu Kiyokawa Eggman

With the release of Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on 3DS in Japan, we now know the new Japanese voice of Eggman to be Motomu Kiyokawa.

Motomu Kiyokama succeeds the late Chikao Ohtsuka, who voiced Eggman from Sonic Adventure 1 all the way to the Sonic Boom games. Chikao Ohtsuka sadly passed away on January 15th, 2015 due to a Ischemic Heart Disorder.

Among Motomu Kiyokama’s Japanese voice acting credits include Thomas in the 90’s Virtua Fighter TV show, as well as the Mahogany Town Gym Leader Pryce (from Gold and Silver) in the Pokémon anime.

The news of the new voice actor came from our own Tracker on our forum, and we even have a clip from a Vine account by a user with a copy of the game which you can view here (make sure to enable sound).

Thanks go to both for the news.
