This post is part of a series on reader requested (and personal curiosity) comparisons between Fire Emblem games’ Japanese and English scripts. Last time, I covered some dialogue Mae says during her recruitment. This time, I check out a scene with Tobin and Gray.
Today’s post has minor spoilers from part one of the game.
Two readers on twitter requested for me to check a line from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia:
I think a lot of people would like to hear what Gray’s “shut up Tobin” was in Japanese too. It’s in Act 1, during the visit to the Deliverance Hideout where Clive reunited with Clair. Gray fanboys over him, Tobin questions why he’s revered if he’s losing the war and Gray just says “Shut up, Tobin.”
Please remember this is not a criticism of the localization, nor do I aim to purport which is necessarily better or that you should/must like better. Any comments I make along those lines are simply my personal opinion that you can feel free to disagree with as need be. : )
Now let’s get to it!
