FE SoV: Valentia Accordion – Secrets of Thabes Labyrinth Translated

This post is part of my ongoing translations of the Fire Emblem Echoes Shadows of Valentia Memorial Book: Valentia Accordion project.

FE Echoes SOV Memorial Book: Valentia Accordion Scan/Translation Compilation Post

 

This post is a compilation of all my Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia – Memorial Book: Valentia Accordion related posts in one neat place. Each section you see below has an individual post, too, which may share translation notes and other tidbits not present on this post.

This will be just like the Tellius Recollection Volume One and Two projects.

Thanks to your donations, I managed to unbind the book. You will notice an increase in scan quality as a result!

This post will be updated every time some new scan or information of interest comes to light.

Assisting me on this project will be VincentASM of serenesforest.net as well as some guest translators! Their translations will be noted/credited! (See credits at the end!) Some other wonderful people are helping out with other things such as scan quality adjustment. Please be sure to thank them in the credits!

As you can imagine, the process of doing all this (scanning, editing, translating, etc) took a lot of free time, so…

Please consider donating! It helps fund future projects!

FE Echoes: SoV Localization – “‘Urning’ Gold” [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.

A reader over on twitter sent me the following:

Do you know what the inspect quotes were like in JP Echoes? Some of them were pretty cheeky in English.

They provided screen shots of the lines they were curious about. I already covered the first one regarding Celica and “pirate booty” previously, and a second one about another pun Alm makes elsewhere regarding pirates and fish.

This is the last of the three this reader wanted me to look at for now. So let’s get to it!

FE Echoes: SoV Localization – Celica and “Pirate Booty”? [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.

 

A reader over on twitter sent me the following:

Do you know what the inspect quotes were like in JP Echoes? Some of them were pretty cheeky in English.

They provided screen shots of the lines they were curious about. They struck me as strange too, so this is the first of the ones I want to cover.

So let’s get to it!

FE Echoes: SoV Localization: Is Lukas different in Japanese? [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.

So here’s a question from a reader:

“Now, I’m curious about Lukas in Shadow of Valentia. I’ve been hearing from people who witnessed his Japanese dialogues and have mentioned that Lukas is more polite and less sarcastic? I’ve been told he’s nicer and more emotional. Is this true?”

Today’s post I compare one scene in particular (requested by the above reader), but there are likely other good candidates to show the differences.

So let’s get to it!

FE Echoes: SoV Localization: “Ginger Studs,” “Sacks of Guts,” & “Tail Feathers” [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 covered the “Shut up, Tobin” scene between Gray and Tobin in Shadows of Valentia.

Today’s post has minor spoilers from part one of the game.

This post revolves around the first encounter with the character Python in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. A reader contacted me on this blog and requested for me to check a line from this scene.

What’s up with Python calling people studs all the time? How does he speak in Japanese/what led the translators to make the choices they made?

While the reader requested to look into the “studs” specifically, I also look at some other dialogue in the same scene to give a better sense of perhaps what the localization was going for, so it may be a bit broader than this question specifically.

Please remember this is not a nonconstructive 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. : ) These are fun observations.

Now let’s get to it!
