We'll have to wait on who else will join Hale in the voice reel of this project.

Who Is Bastila Shan?

In the KOTOR story, Bastila Shan is a key character for Revan's growth in the whole game. Early in the story, Revan is a Sith who is redeemed into becoming a Jedi as he continues on his adventure or he can rediscover his Sith ambitions in the story according to the player's decisions in this game. Players will meet this character alot and is a major player in Revan's goals as the player progresses further in the game.

Both longtime fans and fresh faces who'll pick up the KOTOR remake will have a consistent, similar experience in seeing this character unless the developers change something heavy in the game.
