Minor spoilers pertaining to two character endings in Fire Emblem 7 ahead!
Today’s post looks at a minor translation error that caused some confusion in the seventh Fire Emblem game, known to fans as Blazing Sword (or just Fire Emblem) in the west.
Minor translation errors (that cause big changes) are nothing new to Blazing Sword, as I cover regarding a tiny translation error that causes a big change at the end of the game here.
A young swordsman known as Guy has an epilogue that is a little confusing in the official localization of the game. Namely, for fans who played FE6 (Binding Blade, chronologically a sequel to this game), who know that the swordmaster Karel goes on to be known as the “Sword Saint.”
So did Guy become the Sword Saint? Or did Karel? Or did they both?
