FE Fates Localization: Soleil & Cows [JPN vs ENG]

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 looked at Garcia and Dozla’s support conversation in Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones FE8.

Today, I return to Fire Emblem Fates thanks to a reader request who emailed me:

“So Soleil has this line about how milking cows is ‘good practice.’ Dare I ask what it was in Japanese?”

Ah Soleil, you really hold a special place in my heart. I remember this line in English (and Japanese) as well, so let’s take a look at it!

FE Fates Localization: Death Quote Comparisons [ALL] (JPN vs ENG)

FEIFWallpaper

This is another post in my ongoing Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I compare every death quote in the game! I had been going through and comparing them one by one, but decided a macro-post would be nice to put them in one place. A reader pointed out that there is already a reddit thread that compared the fan translation to the official one, but I thought to add my own post and translation on the matter.

I include notes/commentary where appropriate, but for the most part present them side by side.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

It is all just for fun and curiosity for me. : )

FE Fates Localization: Flora Death Quote Comparison (Minor-Major)

Flora

This is another post in my ongoing Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I look at Flora’s death quote in English and Japanese. It is a major change (to the quote itself), but a minor change (to the overall game/story). That is why it is labeled as “Minor-Major” for more clarification.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

FE Fates Localization: Is Hinata the only potential father who can die? (Error? Minor)

Hinata

This is another post in my ongoing Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game.

Today, I look at Hinata’s death quote in English and Japanese. It is a minor change (or perhaps an oversight) that makes it seem like he dies in English while retreating in Japanese.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

FE Fates Localization: Conquest. Ch 12: Peri/Pieri Intro Dialogue (Minor)

FEIFWallpaper

This post is part of a series of Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game. Today I do a quick request that was to look into how Peri/Pieri introduces herself in Chapter 12 of Conquest. This is a quick post as it is very minor.

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

Fire Emblem Fates Localization: Izana Death Quote & Epilogue Change (Major)

FEIFWallpaper

This post is part of a series of Fire Emblem Fates localization comparison posts! I discuss anything from major to minor changes here as I play through the game. Today, I take a look at a death quote and epilogue change, this one in particular being Izana (recruitable as a bonus character in certain paths).

Consider this a follow up to my previous post about his changes…

Please note that this post is purely informative and may share some opinion, but this does not mean the change is necessarily good or bad. A change is just a change that is being looked into, and you can be the judge of whether you like it or not!

Fire Emblem Fates – Why is Selena the only one of the three who can actually die?

 

Luna

Today’s post is not exactly a localization comparison. Rather, it’s just a brief curiosity post in regards to something that remains in both versions of the game. Namely, why is Selena the only one of the three “expies” (from Awakening) who can actually die? [In Classic Mode].

There may be some minor spoilers to some DLC that is still unreleased in North America (as of this writing). There are also very minor spoilers for Conquest and Revelation.
