NISA? It's really sad that this series went to such horrible publisher. Butchered translations, jokes inserted where there was not even joke in original, memes, changing names, bugs, inserting even more memes and censoring whatever they can.

R.I.P. Ys.

The quality of translation dropped because it's not handled by Xseed, in exchange we got dual audio.. Interesting. Haven't played any Ys game so I'll wait until demo appear and see from that. I'm interested since it got high rating on amazon jp.

It's not like Xseed is the best with translation either anyway Although, NISA isn't much better... hopefully it won't be nepunepu tier translation

I just tried the PS4 demo released today

Action is not my strong suit I played too much DW and SW so I'm kind of struggle but still manageable. I like the simplified battle system though, not really button smashing. The map is huge for a demo and has many perk like climbing/side climbing (which actually need a special item before it available) or jump timing like old RPG. So far the graphic is quite good for ps4 considering it's a vita port, still rough in some place but that's understandable.

I dont know previous y's, but adol as silent protagonist is kind of let down since he has good seiyuu. In-and-out voice over is usual for falcom games so yeah okay. There is glitch I think on event when the party met a baron/noble in the woods. Throughout the event adol is always in battle stance but he still follow the conversation with his head. When given option, adol model will move for a second to a normal standing and then back to battle stance.

I found MANY similarities with xanadu demo from the battle system, movement, battle style, etc. xanadu demo is much longer though, and bear more similarity to cold steel series so I'm inclined more to xanadu

Yeah, Adol almost always has been a "silent" protagonist. The few games where he does talk (that is, actually holding conversations with other characters,) were, interestingly, not developed by Falcom (the PS2 remakes of Ys 3-5 comes to mind). Just think of him as Falcom's own Link (who thankfully has no convoluted timeline crap to deal with).

My first encounter with adol was from falcom gakuen with his perverted and butt-monkey shenanigans, so maybe that infuence me LMAO he got kaji yuuki as seiyuu, I expect he's at least active like rean (at least rean have his own textbox and voice over).

It seems game will have usual "NISA quality translation localization".

More here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1394496

Also, never forget:
Spoiler:

This list is kinda outdated now...

Well no one was surprised NISA wouldn't be able to do the game justice, we can only hope their idiocy is minimized to translation error and/or the build they showed was early.

I really want Ys VIII to do well in the West, especially on PC.

Story so far:
After game really got "NISA quality translation" (few examples: https://imgur.com/a/g6f8y, https://twitter.com/MrRandom28/statu...30168411656192 ), fans got mad and started to send mails to Falcom so NISA promised to fix errors.

New development: http://www.animenewsnetwork.cc/daily...y-2018/.123536
Quote:
NIS America (NISA) senior associate producer Alan Costa announced on Thursday that NISA has delayed the release of its planned patch for the Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game to early 2018. Costa noted that the scope of the changes in the patch made the company unable to release the patch in its original planned release date at the end of November.
They will actually translate this game now? xD


Edit:
From NISA blog entry: http://nisamerica.com/blog/ys-viii-l...ization-update
Quote:
So, what exactly are we doing with this revision? Well, as NISA President Mr. Yamashita mentioned in his message, we are addressing the localization of Ys VIII from the ground up including the below:

- Reviewing and revising the translation with a new translator
- A complete re-edit of the script (voiced and unvoiced) as well as corrections to item names and descriptions with a new editor
- Voice re-recording
- Debugging the new build
Quote:
On that note, as we want this version to be the definitive release of the title, we will be holding the PC version back to coincide this this release as well.
So... New translator, new editor and new dubbing (let's hope it's true since my ears were bleeding after watching English dub trailers)?

Yes. Don't expect the dub to improve because it will be the same cast, just hope that they can finally do the game justice and release a high quality localization + port this time. Them being able to do it in one month and promise that much was foolish and they've finally wizened up.

I don't like NISA, but i want this game to do well (VIII is my top Ys game now), it didn't deserve this mess.

NISA really does seem to make messing up an Olympic Sport.

Honestly, I'm still puzzled that Falcom decided to skip over Xseed for the Ys 8 localization in the first place. I mean, if NISA screwed up so royally that they're forced to redo the entire process from scratch, then one would naturally conclude that Falcom would think twice about who they entrust their top franchises to next time (though admittedly, I haven't played the English version of Tokyo Xanadu yet, but since it doesn't seem that Aksys' localization caused any particular stir, maybe they'd be an okay alternative to Xseed, I dunno). I only want to see the best treatment for one of my favorite series too, after all....

People just haven't been vocal about TX.

Supposedly it was because NISA outbid Xseed for it and they made several promises (faster release date, simultaneous pc release) that Xseed couldn't deliver (Not that NISA kept most of those promises anyway).

NISA should be widely known for their ... creative localizations. I don't know much about alternatives but surely there has to be someone with a better reputation? Or do they simply not care?

Many people who aren't conscious about Japanese voices and language generally don't care about quality as long as the game is in their native language (English).

BAM, and the fixed version of the game is getting released on the Switch:

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/new...summer/.126319

Hopefully the success of this will lead to more Falcom games for the Switch.

Take note that the partnership also extends to Japan's NIS, not just NISA.

This partnership may also be why NISA (the localization branch) got their hands on it over XSEED.

Can't be worse than what Treehouse did to that Knight girl in the recent Fire Emblem games turning her into a meat head muscle retard.
