Niko is like almost 100% confirmed Russian.

Recommended Posts

In the latest trailer, Move Up Ladies, at around 56-59 seconds when Roman is rushed by a couple of guys one even holstering a knife to his neck, you can hear someone say, Where's your Russian friend now, eh? Could that Russian friend be Niko in particular? Well, according to the trailer Niko is pretty much the only person that Roman knows positively because Roman seems to be running away from everyone in the trailer, except for his supposed girlfriend Mallorie. Just a hint at it's probably going to be orientated at the Russian Maffia this time around. So I guess we could omit the previous rumors of him being Croation and such.

You're Weird.

How can you be so sure that he's 100% Russian? Plus, what the hell... A Terrorist? You're kidding me, right? All I can see is that he's Serbian or Croatian, we can't be so sure about it.

STEREOTYPING, ladies and gentlemen. You ASSUMED from the way he sounded that he was russian. You only THOUGHT you knew.

It also may be that the people who say 'where is you're Russian friend now?' are assuming that he's Russian because of the way he sounds. For all we know, they could be corrected in the cut - off part of that scene.

<_<

Umm I don't think so.

Cool video!!! Did you seen that high kick Niko made, guess there might be some new styles of MA to learn (it could be all from karate to boxing, who knows)

Liked the end, "well since you put it that way...." :)

Cool graphics and area around, even AK has a new sound, i like it :)

The rap song raps about money, as i understood it.

At the beggining When he say "niko my cousin, welcome to america" Niko responded: "Zdravo, bracaru" meaning " hello brother.

just tought ill give some info, hope you appriciate it :)

And he's Slovian and him understanding that could possibly tell us where Niko is from. At first I also though he was from Russia but after all the investigations people have been doing, it looks like he's not. And I myself speak Russian and "Zravo, Bracauru" sounds faintly similar to how you would say it in Russian but not Russian for sure.

I think I've read on other forums that in the beggining of the 3rd trailer Niko says something in Serbian ... So how can he be Russian ? Plus I also heard that Niko Bellic is not a russian name ... Oh, and 6 or 7 months ago Dan Houser said "He's not russian, he's Eastern European" ... :o :o :o

Sure I'm not saying he isn't ... maybe he was born in Serbia/Croatia etc. and was raised in Russia ... but then again why would he say something in Serbian in the beginning of the 3rd trailer ?

What's everyone's first assumption when you hear his voice? He sounds Russian. If I started talking in a Yugoslavian/Serbian accent, even I sound Russian. That doesn't mean anything.

(BTW, LOL, I don't have a European accent. But I can joke around and make my voice sound exactly like someone from Serbia, its weird...)

Guys,I´m pretty sure Niko will be a more deep character than the others-

Reasons to believe Niko´s russian:

-When you hear eastern Europe>Russian

-Stereotypical accent>Russian

-Stereotypical look>Russian

-Russia themed music in trailer music and scenes

Reasons to believe Niko´s not Russian,instead possibly Yugoslav

-The name,Nikolai is russian,but Bellic isn´t,names ending with ic are extremely common in Balkan.

-"Zdravo Burazeru" is "Hi Brother/cousin" in Bosnian,although with a slightly different accent,much used by people from Sarajevo,the capital of Bosnia.

- From an Interview with OXM: You've talked about picking culturally different neighbourhoods. Can you reveal any of the gang cultures apart from the Russians? Dan Houser(!): I can't reveal gangs too much yet, but one of the things that appealed to us about a) this character (who isn't actually Russian, he's from Eastern Europe) [...]

Now you GOTTA believe one of the creators of Rockstar Games right ?

*Off topic: What are those "dollars" under your join date ?

Reasons to believe Niko is Russian:

You saw the first trailer and heard what you THOUGHT was a russian vioce, when infact it could be from almost anywhere in eastern europe.

Reasons to believe Niko isn't Russian:

There are dozens. Including, y'know.. when... Dan houser said so himself?

Oh dear.

Eastern Europeans are usually associated with Russians hence the guy said 'Wheres your Russian friend now', to me he is Serbian because of what he said in the beginning of the third trailer which I think was confirmed Serbian.

First of all i though Niko would be russian but now im almost 100% sure hes not. First of all Bellic is not a russian family name. I also talk russian and in the last trailer (move up, ladies) he doesn't sound russian at all even though the soundtrack in the background is sang in russian (King ring by Seryoga - Серёга). Also i have read in many forums that he is Croatian or serbian but i think thats all bullshit.
