Today's new pronunciation video from MTV Multiplayer is a threefer, with Team Ninja's Tomonobu Itagaki explaining (in Japanese no less) how you pronounce his name, "Ninja Gaiden" and "Helena" from Dead or Alive 4.
Im telling all of you again this game is evil........it will consume all of your time and frustrate you to no end until you beat it!!! I HAD TO BEAT Ninja Gaiden...PLAYING HOURS ON END. and I will not be sucked into the second
I know what you mean. No other game to me has been both incredibly frustrating and fun at the same time. But i will get the second
Its not gayden its guyden its not tomato its tomatoe.
No, it's not tomatoe, it's tamato.
Actually, no, it's not tamato, it's tamota.
Hmmm.. no, it's not tamota, it's motamo.
I'm consused too.
But "Ri" in Japanese is pronounced "Ree" which is what it is D:?
lol, reminds me of how Ryu's name was completely murdered throughout the entire Street Fighter movie w/ Van Damme and Kylie Minogue.
The movie was wack but still.
But I know its really Guyden, Its just that everybody else thinks Im pronouncing it wrong.
I've been right all these years. But all these years of saying Guy-den I thought I was saying it wrong.
I've always pronounced it as 'guy-den'... ;)
Whatev. I've been calling it Ninja Gayden since I was a little kid. I don't care how some Jap once me to say it. This is America and I speak American! **** yeah!
♫♪ America f**k yeah, freedom is the only way yeah!♪♫
Btw, NINJA GAY-DEN
just curious. what language is "american"?
American is the version of "english" the brits can't understand. :-)
I've always said Guy-den; watching as much anime as I have, I see the pronunciation difference in the Japanese "Ai" and "Ei." If the game was "Ninja Geiden," then it would be pronounced "Gay-den."
It's not that hard. Actually I finded too easy after a while.
They can't tell us how to pronounce it. Watch MGS4 demo by Kojima and listen to how he pronounces "Snake"
Snake is an English word, so he's the one saying it incorrectly (romaji: "Suneku"). Gaiden is a Japanese word, however.
no 1 cares about mgs4 on this thread nice try ,trying to plug it tho......
not all americans say ninja gey-den, most say ninja guy-den.
now i can tell all my friends the truth.
their is no way this guy is [email protected]
plus [email protected]
pronunciation is nin-JA GI-den? ;)
Who gives a sh!t?
I will pronounce it correctly if you release NG:2 in January!!!
Yup, if you pronounce it correctly other people will think you're stupid.
My wife happened to be reading the latest EGM cover this morning that talks about NG II (while sitting on the thinker) and she came out laughing that the magazine misprinted and put an 'i' in when it should have been an 'r':
Non gamers... how naive :)
