Looks like that, so far, the translation is fine. Finally, for once NOA isn't adding their flavour to the games.
I've heard comments saying that they shouldn't have advertised it as anything related to SMT or FE at first, only to announce the FE contents later on as a surprise. The reason is to avoid raising the expectation too much.
Anyway, I'm glad that they aren't randomly altering names. NOA seems to think players are dumb and don't know how Japanese names work (okay, maybe true for those who aren't that much into Japanese pop culture). Seems not to be the case here.
I think this game is playable at PAX East. I wonder if there is any English version gameplay videos available.
Lance-Slash, Sword-Lunge... so that's what the Session skills are called. Lance-follow Slash would be clearer in indicating that it's a sword move, but it would be really verbose.
Play Records are still called that.
"Elec-lunge", huh... I suppose it's good? In the Japanese version, Session skill magic is referred to with their Fire Emblem names, though, so shouldn't that be Thunder?
They abbreviated "Skill" into "Skl". All Fire Emblem titles prior always keep "Skill" in full.
Stardom (a kind of Performa) is called Prestige here.
It keeps the three measurements and blood type. Those are stuff NOA likes to pretend don't exist.
I was worried that when they said they would raise Tsubasa's age, things would get de-synced in that Itsuki and Touma will have different ages as her, and their school years don't raise accordingly. Glad to see all these being addressed. (Although I don't think it's realy needed in the first place. Tiki's real-life voice actress was 16 at the time of recording her voices, for instance.)
Are those "medicines" supposed to be vulneraries?
They discarded Uta-loid TIKi's captalisation seen in the original version. It's now plain Tiki. Likewise, TOPIC is not just Topic.
Wild enemies are called Savage enemies.
Not bad at all. Far better than what NOA themselves would have done.

To those who plan to buy Tokyo Mirage Seesions ♯FE, do not attempt to fight the secret boss at Lunatic unless you have a LOT of time to spend. If you think reaching level 99 and further raising all of everyone's stats by 12 or so will do the trick, well...
Wait until the next playthrough (you can inherit your levels and items) and lower the difficulty to Easy if all you want is 100% completion. The "I beat this impossible boss at Lunatic" bragging right probably isn't worth it. (You can freely switch between Easy, Normal and Hard, but not Lunatic.)
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.

nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
