The trailer for Forspokens, which contains dialogue, is being dragged by the public ...

Forspoken, a teaser for Square Enix and Luminous Productions' upcoming game, was shared on the game's Twitter account on Monday, which soon went viral for non-trivial reasons. But here's the catch: Frey also narrates the entire trailer in a well-worn manner.

Okay, so let's get this straight: Im in a place that I wouldn't call Earth... Im seeing a lot of dragons, and... oh yeah, I'm talking to a cuff. I'll probably fly next.

Twitter users took to the platform to mock the ridiculous voiceover in the trailers by using its tone to describe the plot of other popular games.

Who is I to say? Shyeah Im all about that axe life. That handsome devil next to me? He can sincerely thank me for his good looks AND formative trauma. But, honestly?

Joss Whedon, who isn't involved in this project, began trending on Twitter as people pointed out the similarities between the trailers' tone and Whedons tendency to embellish the dialogue he writes with quips.

In video games, protagonists often interrogate themselves, whether it's for wayfinding, narrative progression, or quest line purposes. It can be from annoying to unobtrusive, and sometimes useful. For example, Aloy from the Horizon series tends to talk to herself about how to defeat particular machine enemies. The dialogue provides valuable strategic information that Ive found useful during playing those games.

The Forspokens trailer... isn't that bad. It's a bad TikTok voiceover, or the Marvel (we can also just say Big Disney Franchise) school of thought, with a protagonist mostly pointing out expository details that viewers can easily identify, rather than simply feeling things. It's the difference between screaming help when you're pushed off of a building.

Polygon first highlighted the overburdened dialogue in our Forspoken preview. According to the developers, these remarks are Freys way of coping with a difficult or absurd situation. It makes sense that the protagonist of a fish-out-of-water story would continue to be amazed by the final product.

Tom Keegan, the director of motion capture, used troubling stereotypes to describe Frey, who is a Black woman. According to Kotaku, Keegan said she was hip hoppy, and she was on the verge of prison before being transported to Athia.

Following delays, Forspoken is expected to be released in January 2023, and it will be available on PlayStation 5 and Windows PC.
