Troy Baker Not Returning to Reprise Rhys in Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3

Troy Baker has no plans to join the cast of Borderlands 3, at least as a fan favorite character from Tales from the Borderlands.

During a panel at Melbourne convention Supanova, a fan asked Baker if he would be reprising the role of Rhys. For those unfamiliar with the spin-off character, Rhys was one of the protagonists of Telltale’s short-lived Borderlands series.

Baker actually had quite a few thoughts on the matter, as he was not informed he would not return to play the character until he saw Rhys’s quick appearance in the Borderlands 3‘s debut trailer.

“I really want Gearbox to know that if they are going to bring back characters from Tales from the Borderlands, it should be with the people who originated the characters. They should not recast willy-nilly because, as a fan, that matters to me.”

Gearbox has yet to confirm who will take up the hero’s mantle or what Rhys’s role is in Borderlands 3.

Until more is known, keep an eye on OnlySP’s FacebookTwitter, and YouTube before the game launches September 13.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
