For anyone wondering what the cast of BTOOOM!‘s English-dub will be, Sentai Filmworks has posted the names on their Facebook page. Steven Foster is handling the ADR direction, and the English BTOOOM! cast features plenty of recognizable actors, including Brittney Karbowski and Chris Ayres, who are fan favorites. Amazon.com is currently taking pre-orders for BTOOOM! on Blu-Ray and DVD, which will be released December 10, 2013. Right Stuf is taking pre-orders for BTOOOM! as well.
About BTOOOM! (From Sentai Filmworks’ Facebook Page)
In the blink of the mind’s eye, Ryuta Sakamoto suddenly finds himself transported from playing the hit BTOOOM! video game to being stranded on a mysterious island. He’s equipped with a day’s worth of provisions, a bag of bombs, a strange crystal embedded in his left hand, and a huge gaping hole in his memory. But it doesn’t take long to figure out what’s going on, especially after the first person Ryuta meets tries to kill him. Someone is attempting to recreate the ultra-violent BTOOOM! game in real life, and the island has been filled with an army of other unwilling players, each armed with one of the multiple variants of explosive weapons called BIM.
Fortunately, Ryuta’s an ace BTOOOM! player, but this insane version of the game has no reset switch or second lives, and there’s only one way off the island: kill seven other people before they can kill you! Can Ryuta repurpose his game-based skills fast enough to survive this ultimate battle royale?
