This isn't guaranteed to be the version that will appear in the EP7 100% patch, but it isn't likely to change much.

There are other words that are vastly more important that this change, trust me.
And we did keep the same kind of "difficulty" as the japanese fanshad: As they did need English knowledge to solve the epitaph, western fans need Japanese knowledge to solve the riddle.

The change to the epitaph itself isn't major. The big change will be in the sections of the game that discuss the epitaph. Like the Japanese version, the odds are very good that only a very few people will get the full answer, even after the EP5 hints, but it should be solvable.

I don't believe the bolded part used to be there.

No it used to be there. The latest Episode 4 bundle has "those who remain shall" as well.

Is that part in EP2 when they are leaving the chapel getting changed? When they find a second epitaph that had another cryptic piece of information? I always felt that went nowhere.

are you talking about the chapel's inscription?

That one can't possibly be changed since it's in English to begin with and it's been shown in the anime.

From EP4:
"This door is opened only at a probability of a quadrillion to one. You will be blessed only at a probability of a quadrillion to one."

How interesting. I've forgotten all about that. I can't wait to go back and read the entire series again once it's over.

I was talking about the one that Battler couldn't read that well in EP 2, Maria only describes it as having very low probability of opening but yeah, I forgot it made an appearance in EP4.

I think it's pretty obvious at this point what the answer is...it has been for awhile.

No they didn't, but someone else did since a while in Japan, the theory was popularized shortly after EP5.

Some have already answered it, the leading theory appears to be correct so far. You can find the details around this forums if you look hard enough. By the looks of it, It would have been impossible for people that didn't have a good understanding of Japanese and actually read the EPs in japanese as the epitaph and the hints during the first 4 episodes where lost in translation.

A certain character presents a very plausible answer that's been brought up before by fans in one of the core episodes.

Wait... that one was correct? Holy shit.

Could someone link me the complete outline of that theory? I actually had a copy-paste of that but the folder got deleted.
