Worried about Grandia 2 after seeing the botched up job Sony did to the first one when it finally released? Happen to be a fan of the voice acting in Metal Gear Solid? Well, you're in luck, since Ubi Soft is going to be using the same MGS team to dub Grandia 2. So far Ubi Soft is sticking to a Christmas 2000 release date and roughly 30 to 60 percent of the game is already in English. And the game hasn't even been released in Japan yet! It's nice to see Ubi Soft taking Grandia 2 so seriously. Hopefully they'll do fans proud.
