Matt Mercer, the DM on the popular Dungeons & Dragons game, may be the voice of Ganon in the latest Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom teaser. Mercer has made no indication that the role is his, although Aabria Iyengar, who has worked with him on the Critical Role before, appears to be pretty sure.
Matthew Mercer's voice will not be the first time he has played Calamity Ganon's forces back to life again. In 2009, there was a fan-made internet series called There Will Be Brawl, a series dedicated to a dystopian Nintendo world filled with Super Smash Bros. Brawl characters. It's a sight to see.
According to new LEGO set leaks, LEGO The Legend of Zelda is on the way.
Mercer has a long history of supporting fan-made content and enjoys cosplaying. As the main DM of Critical Role, he has assisted many people in gaining interest in tabletop gaming, but he is already a highly accomplished voice actor. In fact, his take on Thordak from the Vox Machina campaign in Critical Role can be compared to his own.
Ganon has appeared in many anime and animated series and films, including Overwatch as Cassidy, the English take on Goro Majima from the Yakuza games, and many others. After Zelda received her first mainline game voice from Patricia Summersett in Breath of the Wild, we are excited to see what Ganon has to say in Tears of the Kingdom. Hopefully, we will know for sure whether or not Mercer will appear soon.
