Nintendo has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will not support dual audio (EX: English subtitles/UI and Japanese voice-overs), news that has been met with immediate disappointment.
F u Nintendo... I cant. belive this crap . So all your western fans get a gimped game.... What are those board members thinking singing off on this shite . The last time i bought anything Nintendo. Was the n64 .... And everything before it.... I don't remember Nintendo being this shite .... Definitely not the Nintendo I remember.
the company doesnt get it and it seems like they never will and dont care to get it. i know sony and microsoft have official forums where they do get feedback, does nintendo offer this type of customer interaction?
This decision by Nintendo means I lost all interest in Zelda ( I only buy, support and enjoy games in their original language), and with that, it also automatically means I won't be buying the Switch... A shame, cause the game seems good and the console has potential. But when games like Zelda and/or Xenoblade 2 will only be available dubbed, then it's simply a no-go...
You we're never going to get it if it had subtitles anyway. Look at your comment history. Nice trolling attempt. The voice acting seems to be just as good as the japanese. Don't understand how it's gimped. Do you even know that voice acting is non existent for link? Or the fact that there is very little voice acting at all? Or the fact that most of the game is reading text henc you already have the subtitles?
stop defending this, there is no reason why they cant offer both
The N64 didn't have dual audio either, though?
Nope. It only included the original Japanese actors.
well that's a shame. Here's hoping Nintendo can release an update somehow to correct that since the Japanese voices are all on the cart. Can't be that hard to be able to pick the audio track and the subtitles track separately.
Audio track, maybe. But subtitles are defiantly easily doable. Really moronic to not have subtitles built into the game. What if you're death? But hey, majority of the game has no voices. I don't think voice acting is a huge part of this game and only on occasions.
I hate when the browser suggest to correct my misspelled "Definitely" and it always ends up as "Defiantly" ... damn browsers...
dang. I guess imma have to deal with Zelda's English Voice Actor terrible performance with Zelda's crying scene.
Zelda English voice is horrible and I do prefer Japanese voice since sounds more natural. But guess I can mute her everytime her scene comes up.
Personally I prefer the English Voice actress. JP version is too over the top and child like for me. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Personally I'm not a fan of either the Japanese OR English crying scene. The English one sounds half-assed, but the Japanese one was that horrible stereotypical over-the-top wail that so many female anime characters do. Nobody actually cries like that.
I always try and play Japanese games in it's original language. Just something so cringe worthy when playing with English voices.
Lot of members of the sub master race on here....
That's unfortunate. Even though I prefer the English voice acting better, people should still have a choice.
Im pretty salty cuz the voices are on cart too.
So they are saying the audio and text data is present but there simply isn't an option to toggle the language options? In 2017? Sounds like BS.
Out of all the problems with the switch this should be your last concern
Nah i take dual audio seriously. My first concern now.
I'd rather play in my own language I enjoy playing Japanese games in English not the other way round lol
Who gives a FUCK!?!?!?....o yeah hardcore middle aged male nerds. This is the least of the concern regarding all the twitch problems!!
F you Nintendo. I'll be sending a lot of upset messages to them. Remember to actually CONTACT Nintendo if you're upset about this.
