It’s always a pleasure to win an award, and even more honoring to win an award selected by gamers themselves.
Last week, the shiny 2021 HOTY trophy was personally delivered to our studio, adding to our consecutive 3rd year collection.
Konsoler, a Korean gaming webzine specializing in console games, holds the annual GOTY (Game of The Year) and HOTY (Hangeul game of The Year) events. Musai Studio has been awarded HOTY for three consecutive years since 2019.
The game “Guilty Gear -Strive”, which was awarded this year to Musai Studio, was even more touching to work with voiceovers again, after “Guilty Gear XX,” which was originally localized 19 years ago by Musai Studio.
Here’s the list of the HOTY we’ve been awarded from 2019,
- 2019 – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
- 2020 – Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War
- 2021 – Guilty Gear – Strive
Since these awards are voted by gamers, we feel both a great sense of delight and responsibility for being chosen by users as the Hangul Game of the Year for 3 years in a row.
In particular, POTY(Performance of the Year) is a newly added category which awards for voice actors for their voiceover performance. This is a real surprise to us as the gaming industry is now showing appreciation for the Talant’s voice over work and becoming a mainstream category in the gaming industry.
The first male and female voice actors to win the POTY award are Lee Jung-gu(이정구) and Um Hyun-jung(엄현정), who played ‘Master Chief’ and ‘Cortana’ prospectively in Halo Infinity.
This was also pleasant news as those performances were recorded here at Musai as well.

Last but not least, we would like to thank the Konsoler for hosting the only localization award event in Korea, and above all, we are deeply grateful to the gamers who support our work.
Musai Studio will continue to strive for the most immersive experience for gamers around the world.
