Kenichi Suzumura paving new territory with song featured on new The Sims 4 expansion pack


Well, that’s a first one for a seiyuu. Lantis has announced that Kenichi Suzumura is going to be your sims’ favorite artist around. The multi-talented seiyuu is featured in the latest The Sims 4 expansion pack “City Living”.


Alongside labelmates ZAQ, Sayaka Sasaki and Shuhei Kita, Suzumura has also re-recorded his song in “simlish” (the game’s fictional language). The chosen song was “Ships“, Suzumura‘s hit song released back in 2014 and featured on his second full length album, VESSEL.

This is the first time Japanese songs are featured in the game franchise.

The simlished version of “Ships” can be found at the Spop radio station.

Suzumura entered to the history books as the first seiyuu to have a song featured in a foreign game. […]
