- —The Narrator describing Tenuto Village
Eternal Sonata features an unseen male narrator. In the original Japanese game, he is voiced by Leo Morimoto, while in the U.S. language version his voice is provided by Taylor Henry (who also provides the voice of Legato.)The narrator is first heard in the game's opening, describing the sights and sounds of Tenuto Village. He is again heard post-game, narrating the story "Shape of Life."
