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!

Fire Emblem if/Fates: 4Koma KINGS Page 112 Translation

The latest of my daily scan/clean/translation of  Fire Emblem if (Fates): 4Koma Kings (ファイアーエムブレムif 4コマKINGS).

This is an individual post for Page 112. The compilation post that features all pages thus far is here!

I do not post the raw scans here, but you may email if you want them to compare translations! I do at least one page per day.

All scanning, editing, translating, and uploading is done on my free time and is rather time consuming. It is certainly a lot of work… so please consider donating if you like the work I do. Any amount (no matter how small) is much appreciated and helps me keep going on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy the end results of my work!

112translateNotes:

  • A minor change. Silas was eating “sashimi,” which I changed to sushi, as I felt it is slightly more recognizable to a general audience. It had no effect on the rest of the panel, and is still a representative of Japanese/Hoshidan cuisine.

Fire Emblem Fates: Soleil’s Localized Support Conversation (FULL)

Today, someone on youtube managed to get the English version of Fire Emblem Fates early and load a Japanese save file onto it in order to view Soleil’s support conversation as it was officially localized. I then transcribed the entire thing by watching the video above. Find the transcript below! I will do a detailed comparison later on, but I do leave some notes at the bottom.

As you may know, the original Japanese dialogue was controversial due to misinterpretations and a bit of a media frenzy. You can read all about that here. Her original support conversation in Japanese (translated ) can be viewed here.

As you can imagine, the process of transcribing this took some time (and passion!), so if you are feeling generous, then…Please donate! It helps fund future projects!

Fire Emblem Fates: Info on the Soleil Controversy

According to Nintendo World Report, Nintendo has decided to change controversial dialogue:

“In the version of the game that ships in the U.S. and Europe, there is no expression which might be considered as gay conversion or drugging that occurs between characters.” a Nintendo representative e-mailed us this morning.

You can read the rest of the summary and news on the above article. This has, of course, rekindled some talk surrounding Fire Emblem Fates’ Soleil. I have been doing translations and such for this game from pre-release all the way to post-release, so I figure I best talk about this too, mostly in an informative way.

UPDATE: The officially localized conversation can be found here.

What I want to talk about in today’s post is where exactly that all started, what was misinterpreted, etc. It’s odd how this all became an issue in the first place, but it seems it did enough for Nintendo to have to directly comment on it… and subsequently alter it to avoid any such controversy.

The post has some spoilers pertaining to her character, but will not spoil the overall game.
