BAYONETTA TOO | Did Hellena Taylor Lie? (Bloomberg Article) (VL727)

The wait for the release of PlatinumGames' Bayonetta 3 is almost over, but fans supportive of the character's original English voice actor, Helena Taylor, have been called to wait forevermore.

As with so many such disputes - it's complicated.

Let's discuss.

There are two sides to every story...in Virtual Legality.
