High-profile voice actors for Shadows of the Damned in Japan

Grasshopper Manufacture's Shadows of the Damned is set to infuse Japan with its Hot Boner this September. To help ensure that Japanese fans of grindhouse gore gravitate towards the product, it's enlisted some real-world celebrities to accompany the already extensive list of gaming celebrities attached to the title.

Tadanobu Asano, best known for his role as Kakihara in Ichi the Killer, will be lending his pipes to Shadows' profanity-proficient protagonist Garcia. Chiaki Kuriyama of Kill Bill: Vol 1 and Battle Royale fame will voice Garcia's kidnapped girlfriend, Paula, and Miyazaki veteran Tatsuya Gashûin will give voice to Johnson, Garcia's phallic freudian friend/weapon. Man, you'd think this was a Guitar Hero post on account of all this star power.
