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.)
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
