There’s some very sad news coming out of the voice acting industry today. Billy Kametz has passed away at 35 years of age after a battle with stage four colon cancer.
Kametz was well-known within the anime and video game industry. Nintendo fans will know him best as the voice of Ferdinand Von Aegir in Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Fire Emblem Heroes, and also Blue in Pokémon Masters.
Some other games he voiced characters in included Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Rui), Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster (Raidou Kuzunoha), Triangle Strategy (Jerrom) and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (Nenji Ogata).
He also voiced characters in anime series such as Attack on Titan, Boruto, Demon Slayer, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (Josuke Higashkata), Pokémon Journeys (Ren) and Neon Genesis Evangelion (Shigeru Aoba).
On behalf of the community here at Nintendo Life, our thoughts go out to Billy’s friends and family during this difficult period.
