A new detail that has recently been known comes back to us and is related to one of the most anticipated titles in the catalog on the hybrid console. This time we are talking about Bayonetta 3 and news about the controversy of the ex-voice actress of Bayonetta Hellena Taylor.
After knowing its new trailer and its release date, along with its special edition, now we get information about this controversy. A new article from Bloomberg I would throw these details on the subject:
The media affirms that through close sources they have been able to know that Hellena was going to be paid between 3,000 and 4,000 dollars for five 4-hour sessions, between 15,000 and 20,000 dollars for retaking the role in total. However, she asked for a “6-figure” amount of money. Platinum turned down Taylor’s request and decided to replace her with Jennifer Hale. Taylor was offered a cameo in the game for the price of a session but Taylor turned this down as well. To this report, Taylor responds by saying that it is “an absolute lie” and points out that Platinum was “trying to save his ass and the game”. Taylor added.
Remember that Taylor shared that those responsible decided to replace her with Jennifer Hale after offering her only 4,000 dollars for the whole game. In the videos shared, Taylor shows her disappointment and explains how frustrating it is that they offer that amount for the work behind the paper. It appears that she had initially been offered even less than $4,000, which she believes is an “insult.” Only after sending a letter and receiving a response from Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games did she receive that $4,000 offer.
For this reason, he has also encouraged fans to boycott the game and donate the money that was going to be spent on it to charity. “I’m not afraid of the confidentiality agreement, I can’t even afford to drive a car, what are they going to do, take my clothes off… good luck to them. Bayonetta always stands up for those with less power and stands up for what is right, and in doing so, you stand with her,” he added. Finally, he also mentions that the new voice actress has no right to say that she is the voice of Bayonetta because she was the one who created his voice.
