I‘ll also provide troubleshooting tips in case you run into any issues with the voice language not changing properly. Read on to learn all the details so you can get the voices you want in Tower of Fantasy!
Why Would You Want to Change the Voice Language in Tower of Fantasy?
Before we dive into the how-to steps, let‘s first quickly cover why you might want to change the voice language at all.
Tower of Fantasy was first created and launched in China by Chinese game developers Perfect World and Hotta Studio. So originally, the game‘s voices were purely in Mandarin Chinese.
When localized for global release, Tower of Fantasy was translated to English text and voiced over into English as well.
But you may find you prefer the game in its original Mandarin Chinese voices or in the Japanese voice over. There are a few key reasons why switching the voice language can improve your Tower of Fantasy experience:
Fluency in Another Language
Obviously if you speak Japanese or Chinese fluently, having the game voiced in that language will feel much more natural to you. Rather than reading subtitles, you‘ll directly understand all the spoken dialogue.
Prefer the Voice Actors
For some players, the appeal is in the Japanese voice cast, which includes many popular anime voice actors. Fans of these actors may enjoy hearing them in the context of Tower of Fantasy.
Some gamers simply prefer to play any game with the original audio. Since Tower of Fantasy was first created in Chinese, players who value authenticity may want the original Mandarin voices, even without understanding the language.
Others choose to play in Japanese or Chinese as a way to immerse themselves in the language to improve their listening skills. The voice acting provides contextual language practice.
No matter your reason for wanting to switch the voice language, the option is there. Next we‘ll look at how to actually change it on mobile and PC.
Step-by-Step Guide to Changing Voice Language on Mobile
The great news is that changing voice language on the Android or iOS versions of Tower of Fantasy is quick and straightforward. Just follow these steps:
Open Tower of Fantasy on your mobile device and tap the menu button in the top right corner of the screen. This brings down a menu overlay.
Tap on the "Settings" menu option to enter the game settings screen.
On the left side of the screen, tap on the "Language" option. This will open the language settings.
Under "Game voiceover language", tap on the dropdown box that likely says "English" by default.
You will see two options – English and 日本語 (Japanese). Tap on 日本語 if you want to switch to the Japanese voice over.
The game will need to fully restart for the voice language change to take effect. You can tap the button prompt to restart, or force close and relaunch the app.
When Tower of Fantasy reopens, the voice overs will now be in Japanese! You can follow the same steps to switch back to English as needed.
And that is all it takes to change voice language on the Android or iOS versions of Tower of Fantasy. Just a few quick taps in the settings menu. Very straightforward!
Now let‘s move on to changing voices on the PC version, which has a couple extra steps involved.
How to Change Voice Language on PC
Changing the voice over language on the PC version of Tower of Fantasy follows the same overall process, but has one small catch.
You may need to change your Windows language settings first to get the voice language options to show up properly in the game. Here are the full steps:
Launch Tower of Fantasy on your PC and click the menu button in the top right corner.
Click on "Settings" then select "Language" in the left sidebar.
Under "Game voiceover language", click the dropdown box. If you only see English here, keep reading.
If the dropdown shows both "English" and "日本語", skip to step 8. If not, you need to change your Windows display language.
Search for "Region Settings" in Windows and open your Language & Region settings.
Under "Windows display language", change to Japanese or Chinese depending on the Tower of Fantasy voices you want.
Also click "Region" and change to the appropriate region, like Japan or China.
Relaunch Tower of Fantasy. You should now see the voice language options in the dropdown!
Select either English or Japanese voices, then restart the game. The new voices will now be active.
By matching your Windows display language to the voice language you want in game, you enable Tower of Fantasy to show those voice over options.
Some players have also reported deleting a file called "MyCultureName.ini" forces the voice options to show up. So try this file deletion fix if changing display language doesn‘t work.
And that covers the full process! Just a couple extra steps to get the right voice language on PC.
Why Can‘t I Change Voice Language in Tower of Fantasy? Troubleshooting Tips
For most players, following the steps above will allow you to easily change between English and Japanese voice over languages. But some gamers report running into issues getting the voices to actually change properly.
Here are some troubleshooting tips if you can‘t seem to change the voice language in Tower of Fantasy:

English vs. Japanese vs. Chinese Voices
To help you decide which voice over language to use, here‘s a quick comparison of how the voice acting casts differ between languages:
|Language||Voice Actors and Notes|
|English||Variety of lesser known voice actors|
|Japanese||Many popular anime voices like Saori Hayami|
|Chinese||Top Mandarin-speaking actors and actresses|
The English voice cast is primarily voiced by lesser known voice actors. There are no standout big names.
Meanwhile, the Japanese cast features many voice actors who you‘ll recognize from popular anime. This includes stars like Saori Hayami, the voice of Yelan, who has acted in shows like Demon Slayer.
Finally, the original Mandarin Chinese voice cast is considered very high quality, featuring some of the top voice actors fluent in Mandarin.
So in summary, the Japanese cast may appeal most to anime fans, while Chinese has the authenticity of the original actors. Pick based on your preferences!
