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


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!

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

Fire Emblem Fates: Ike amiibo Event Dialogue Comparison (JPN vs ENG)


Back in August I translated Ike’s amiibo event in full. A few days ago, GameExplain released a video of all four “first encounter” dialogues in the English version of the game. I took a look at Lucina’s dialogue, and surprisingly, things changed! Then I looked at Robin’s, not as many differences, but a few.

So I decided to look into Ike today (and hopefully Marth tomorrow)to see if things changed in those.

This is by no means a “they changed everything so don’t buy this game” post! This is just to show how things can sometimes change through localization and is a way to satiate curiosity.

Note, this is just the first encounter for now. If I find videos, or when the game comes out, I will be able to compare second encounters as well. I will update this post to reflect those.

Enjoy! Feel free to email or comment with more requests related to FE in general.
