ALSO Prime!!

There are 3 distinct recorded voices, maybe 4, in the boss battle theme in this new gameplay demo trailer (OMG so hawt!). The link I have there starts at 53 seconds.

Sounds quite a bit like Emi to me. Other voices elsewhere, but that voice is unmistakably Emi Evans.

Holy shit.  It's like a video game opera or some bananas. 

I love how it combines the bullet hell from NieR but that wonky camera thing from the Drakengard finale.

Yooooo, she's too fast. Like seriously, that's amazing how quick the character can move. I seriously can't wait for this game.

No other video this E3 made me feel like I wanted to be the one holding the controller and playing like that boss battle clip.

Highlight of the show for me, even with The Last Guardian and the new Zelda present.

Love it! Doesn't sound like Emi Evans to me, she has a slightly different timbre. But that doesn't sound like any language I know of, so I think the constructed speech is back.

So here's the thing, in the first game, Emi didn't create any languages. She studied the phonetics of a number of real-world languages, and then created wonderful sounding nonsense based on those. Not to knock this approach at all, in fact, it's super creative and as we know, was extremely successful. It's an entirely intuitive approach to writing vocals that just sound and feel right, without having to be tied down by meaning, or have to get wrapped up in making the morphosyntax work.

Here's one theory: maybe they went all out and wanted to make a real ConLang this time, instead of just random syllables. To do that, you need to hire a linguist, which Emi Evans is not. Find a linguist with a professional vocal background, and you're set!
