Might want to change the title if you bring it west.
Acquiescence  +   556d ago
Haha, you think there's a chance this is coming to the West.

Japanese titles are famously bad. Bravely Default, metal gear solid, kingdom hearts... I could go on and on. There is obviously a lot lost in translation.

You've not been gaming for very long have you?
I think you may find that the worst games have come from, and continue to come from western companies.

Those games are bad? Famously bad too?

Haha... ha... HA

For a moment I thought you were referring to Japanese games when you said "titles" then I realized you were talking about the names. :p I kind of agree with that... Remember that Xbox360 JRPG: Infinite Undiscovery? I still cant translate that in to my language or comprehend its meaning... Dont get me wrong guys, I am a hardcore JRPG/Japanese games fan and have been playing them since the 80s but Japanese games title (names) often do not mean anything if you try to translate them in your language or try to make sense of them.

EDIT: I think others are making the same mistake too. By the word "title" they are understanding it as "games". He only meant the names guys... I think...

None of the ones you listed were bad.

@donwel
I've been gaming over 20 years son. And just because the titles are terrible doesn't mean the games suck. In no way shape or form did I say that.
Edit-Jeez you guys need to lighten up and actually read the comments before lynching.

@JohnnyTower Oh you meant the titles of the games themselves? Good god son be more specific haha.
I apologise, I admit I did jump to conclusions there. In any case, I will agree with you, there are some good old nippon games that fall foul of translation in the naming department.

"Titles" was an ambigious word to use, as it in this context can mean both game and name. I take it, however, that you meant name?

In that case, I agree, even though most of the titles with badly translated names are pretty old.

Not that titles like Killzone, Red Dead Redemption and Duke Nukem make that much sense either.

They're titles are often like 4-5 times longer than ours are.

Made up Example:

* US - journey of the champion

* Japan - Legendary journey across mountains, sea, sky, and village to search for the wandering witch

The only people who'd be interested in the game- it's a visual novel, after all- are those who wouldn't be put off by the title, anyway.
RoboticusRex  +   556d ago
Haha, I love the title. Normalizing is boring.
WeAreLegion  +   556d ago
It is, but some games would sell better with more culture-friendly titles.
RoboticusRex  +   556d ago
True, but the people who would buy it would want it for the Japanese culture, which includes the strangely translated titles. Although I seriously doubt this game will ever be released in the west.
