Slightly OT,however, I believe if the dialogue redo's for the US version of
the playstation game,Metal Gear Solid did something like this. I remember
reading somewhere all the actors who were involved with the game had to play
the game before they could start work on the dubbing. IMHO,they did a fine
job. (suspiciously...the actor who did Solid Snake in MGS sounds alot like
the VA for Spike in Cowboy Bebop)
