Richard Epcar, voice actor of over 500 game, anime and cartoon characters since 1980 – including Ghost in the Shell’s Batou and both Ben Dixon and Grel in 1985’s Robotech: The Macross Saga – has hinted on Twitter that he will reprise one of his 90s roles. He voiced Daisuke Jigen in Lupin III: Part 2, and it seems he will make a triumphant return for an English dub of Lupin III: Part 4.
Very busy directing and voicing on an old friend of a project. Can you guess what it is? pic.twitter.com/KrpG5CxDno

While answering questions from fans on Twitter in response to this suggestive tweet, he gave the very strong impression that he would also be joined by Tony Oliver returning as Lupin, Michelle Ruff as Fujiko, Lex Lang as Goemon and Dan Lorge as Zenigata. But as for official and concrete announcements, for the moment we’ll just have to keep out a watchful eye.
