Dana DeLorenzo Returns as Kelly in Evil Dead: The Video Game
UPDATE: Ray Santiago, the performer behind Pablo in Ash vs Evil Dead, has also announced that he’s joining Evil Dead: The Game and reprising his role! This is both a big surprise and also totally not. We’ve yet to see Pablo in-game, so this confirms that there are going to be characters outside of just the five we saw in the reveal trailer. The “totally not” half of that also comes from Santiago commenting on being a part of this game years ago, when Bruce Campbell leaked it.
The new Evil Dead game is lookin’ good, lookin’ sweet! Announced during the VGAs last month, Evil Dead: The Video Game has been a long time coming after years worth of series star Bruce Campbell dropping hints and teases about the project — and it’s looking more and more exciting with each passing piece of new info! While Ash vs Evil Dead‘s Kelly was featured in the original reveal trailer we only just now have learned that her original performer, Dana DeLorenzo, will be returning to provide her voice!
It’s official: I’ll be voicing
Kelly Maxwell in @EvilDeadTheGame!
Get the deli slicers and F-💣s ready, because I’m gonna kick some serious Deadite ass in 2021!

DeLorenzo is joining the aforementioned Campbell (playing Ash Williams, of course) along with the characters Arthur (Army of Darkness) and Scotty (The Evil Dead). I can’t find any info on whether or not those performers (Marcus Gilbert and Richard DeManincor respectively) will be providing their voices, although the likenesses are pretty iffy in comparison to Campbell and DeLorenzo’s.
In case you don’t remember, the game itself is a 4 player co-op PVE game, with levels spanning the entire Evil Dead franchise (sans the 2013 remake, although I hope that changes). It’s looking like a hell of a bloody good time, which the devs describe as a “one-of-a-kind game that casts players against the forces of evil that have been unleashed from the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, with sights and sounds inspired by the films”.
Evil Dead: The Video Game itself doesn’t have a release date as of yet, but it’s going to be releasing for everything, across all Xbox and PlayStation consoles, PC, and Switch. We’re very excited for it over here, so we’ll keep you updated!
