Malaysian voice actress Su Ling Chan to voice Bailu in Honkai: Star Rail
She's been giving voice to characters in various media since 2005
Malaysian voice actress Su Ling Chan has joined the cast of HoYoverse's Honkai: Star Rail as the voice of Bailu, as revealed through the character's bio page on the game's official website.
Chan is a veteran voice actress that has lent her voice to various characters in TV, video games, and other media since 2000, and is also the co-founder of the MY SG voice actors community.
Some of Chan's most noteworthy work include voicing Mayday in the video game No Straight Roads, various characters in Power Rangers: The Audio Drama, Cream the Rabbit in The Sonic & Knuckles Show, and Admiral Lau in the Vast Horizon podcast series.
In Honkai: Star Rail, Su Ling Chan will be voicing Bailu in the game's English vocalisation. Bailu is described as a doctor from the Alchemy Commission under the Xianzhou Alliance, and will be a 5-star Lightning character. As her profession as a doctor suggests, Bailu will have the role of a healer in-game.
In a post on her official Twitter account, Chan said she spent two years learning Mandarin because she wanted to know how to say Liyue (璃月)", referring to a region in HoYoverse's smash-hit game Genshin Impact.
"Now I need to know how to say "Xianzhou"... But still my dream is to say "Liyue"," Chan said in a post on social media.
Honkai: Star Rail is HoYoverse’s next instalment in the Honkai Universe after the fan-favourite Honkai Impact 3rd. Although it exists in the same shared universe as its predecessor, Star Rail is its own narrative driven by a desire to explore the universe.
The game is currently taking sign-ups for its last Closed Beta, with the official release expected in the coming months.
We had the privilege to take part in Honkai: Star Rail’s Closed Beta 2 for three weeks last year, and there's much to be excited about for Honkai veterans and newcomers alike. In Honkai: Star Rail, we will play as an amnesiac implanted with the “Stellaron” — the Cancer of All Worlds, which gives us unbridled power.
Along with the passengers of the Astral Express, aptly called Trailblazers, we will travel throughout the universe to dispel the threat of mass destruction by The Aeons as well as unearth the secrets behind their legends.
The game is different from the open world we’ve gotten used to in Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact, employing a Turn-Based RPG mechanic, allowing you to focus on strategizing when fighting against enemies. The gameplay is similar to other turn-based RPG games like Atlus’ Persona series.
Although HoYoverse has yet to announce the exact date of Honkai: Star Rail’s release, we can expect it to launch within the next few months after the Final Closed Beta.
The launch date is expected to be 7 March, after Honkai: Star Rail’s poster girl, named March 7th.
