Joistiq: Heavy Rain features 13 voiced languages, subtitles in 5 more

Heavy Rain will be fully voice acted in 13 languages, with subtitles also available for all spoken languages, plus five more languages. These details were disclosed during a presentation at GamesCom this afternoon, when Quantic Dream founder David Cage introduced Pascal Langdale, the actor playing the English-speaking version of Heavy Rain's Ethan Mars (pictured right), and talked about the extensive voice work necessary for the game's many branching scenes.

Knowing a single Blu-ray disc can store language data in bulk, we were curious about how many language options would be available in the game. As it turns out, if Cage had brought out all of Mars' voices the the room would have gotten pretty tight. Check out the confirmed list of languages after the break. (We're still waiting for official confirmation on a couple -- the Quantic Dream team couldn't name them all off the top of their heads.)

Voice acted:

* English
* German
* Italian
* Spanish
* Portuguese
* Dutch
* Japanese
* Korean
* Mandarin
* Russian
* French

Note: A Polish language option is unconfirmed. (We'll update the list as needed.)
