  1. That is Melissa Fahn. It's one of many aliases she's used over the years.
  2. So 8-4 isn't localizing Three Houses

    As far as I can tell, there isn't a lot of controversy about Treehouse outside of Fire Emblem. As you said, Triforce Heroes was very memey but that game is wacky to begin with. When it comes to Mario and Pokemon and such, there really are few problems. Granted, they have been responsible for some notable mistranslations in Zelda. One particularly instance in Breath of the Wild where Zelda states Ganon has given up on reincarnation, when it fact it was supposed to be the opposite (when you look at the Japanese and other versions). I also heard they essentially completely rewrote Demise's speeches in Zelda: Skyward Sword.
  3. Is "Teacher" the avatar?

    Looks exactly the same to me too.
  4. So 8-4 isn't localizing Three Houses

    Here's the thing. Tetsuya Takahashi (Xenoblade producer) said that there were frequent meetings with Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe during Xenoblade Chronicles 2's development, where they helped laid out what would be more universally accepted. I'm going to guess they're taking a similar stance with Fire Emblem. I doubt they want a re-run of Fates' controversy.
  5. GameXplain's Three Houses analysis

    Sadly, I see the "That is Tiki" or "That is Nowi" post almost everywhere now a days. Really wish people wouldn't jump to conclusions. The idea of getting another green-haired dragon girl is hardly unusual. Fire Emblem likes to re-use tropes and homages, like with all the blue-hared lords. I feel pretty sure that Mercedes and Hilda are just a work in progress and generics were used in their place for now. Game really looked incomplete, which probably contributed to it not appearing at Treehouse Live. I'm a little surprised at how few people on Youtube are noticing that the enemy general guy seems to be using the same sword the woman is holding, as they have the same hilt. Really, I'm surprised how little people seem to make that observation.
  6. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    On a small point, I wonder if the platoon style of play means there won't be any indoor maps, as that would look kind of strange. I mean, it wouldn't be the first time. Genealogy didn't have any indoor maps if I recall correctly.
  7. I'm really liking the art style. The comparison to art from Atlus games only makes me like it more. Based on initial impressions, I think Byleth already has my favorite look out of all the Avatars. Doesn't look as silly as Robin's outfit or as ridiculous as Corrin's.
  8. Is "Teacher" the avatar?

    I'll say this much, if Teacher is the Avatar (which seems to be mostly a certainty now) then he already has my vote for best default look for an Avatar yet. Seriously, he looks so much cooler than Robin and Corrin, and unlike the latter, he's actually wearing shoes and not wearing armor that looks like a bodysuit.
  9. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    Probably too busy. They got Hidari for Echoes because they actually planned ahead to make sure they could get on his schedule. They originally wanted him for Awakening but he was too busy then as well.
  10. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    You are correct, and frankly it's why I'm actually not quite as high on 8-4's handling of Awakening's script. It's why I much prefer their translation for Echoes. They kept that one straight to the point without all the nonsense.
  11. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    The thing is, we don't really know how old Kana is. You listen to Male Kana's Japanese voice and he sounds like a young teen, whereas he sounds like an 8-year old in English.
  12. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was handled by Nintendo of Europe. Treehouse had no part in it.
  13. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    To be fair, they did do some dumb things with Fates localization. 1. The infamous Saizo and Beruka C-support 2. Forced in pop culture memes (did we really need Shiro to quote Smokey the Bear for example?) 3. Changed personalities for the worse. Effie is often the most cited example. Keaton and Velouria had their "doggy" shtick exaggerated to heaven and back. Same thing with Hisame and his pickle obsession (again, highly exaggerated from the original version). Both genders of Kana were made a lot more childish, even having S-ranks reduced to being more platonic. I mean, the characters were already exaggerated tropes, but Treehouse ended up making some of them even MORE exaggerated. 4. Unlike the other games, they didn't even finish the full localization, leaving two DLC's untranslated. 5. Now I'm not sure if Treehouse was in charge of this aspect, but Fates seems to be viewed as having inferior voice acting compared to Awakening and ESPECIALLY Echoes. Now, I don't blame them for removing the skinshipping because the idea of touching anyone, even strangers, is extremely creepy, and I don't blame them for how Soleil was handled because they likely had no choice there. Soleil is an anime stereotype that really doesn't translate well to western audiences.
  14. Three versions?

    I doubt it. Fire Emblem may be growing in popularity, but I don't think it has the clout to continue pulling multiple versions. Besides, doing all for the Switch would probably require more work than Intelligent Systems wants. In all honesty, it's kind of why I'm beginning to think "Three Houses" isn't the best subtitle. After the fiasco with Fates, such a title just seems to be putting people on edge.
