Eric Williams, Director God Of War Ragnaröktold the publication Game Informerthat Ratatoskr remained in the game only thanks to him. The developers were unanimous in favor of cutting out the talking squirrel, the guardian of Yggdrasil, because there are already too many characters in the action movie. However, Williams managed to defend a strange and completely inappropriate hero.
The world of God of War Ragnarök is full of monsters and gods who only pursue their own interests. And in this setting, the appearance of a strange one-eyed squirrel looks so alien that even the music director admitted that he did not know what music to choose for this moment.
Williams wanted the game to have light-hearted and funny moments to offset the overall dark tone. That is why he did everything possible to save Ratatoskr. And he was entrusted with the voice acting by Sangwon Cho, a voice actor and vlogger known for his role as FL4K in Borderlands 3 and Mitsuo Yasumura Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
Sangwon himself admitted that he did not even know what role he was offered: at that time, Ragnarök had not yet been announced. Only when he came to the negotiations, he found out that we were talking about a series God Of War. But the appearance of Ratatoskr did not shock him at all, because in his career he voiced even more strange characters.
