Ys VIII Quick Translation Patch Comparison

Posted By   Lank91's Avatar Lank91   on February 1st, 2018 Report

The updated translation and localization is a lot less awkward. The original really feels forced and fake. The update sounds a lot more like it's people having an actual conversation and not so robotic. The conversations seem a lot more organic. The original version feels kind of like someone is just translating lines by themselves and not really caring how those lines fit in with the rest of the conversation.

It's a shame they couldn't get it right the first time, and this is a nice improvement. Hopefully this is a sign that NISA will put more effort into their localization for other games they localize.

Now, we just have to hold on to see what they do to the poor PC port of this game.
