Heres the first European trailer for the game:
It definitely doesn't sound as good as the Japanese version but I think its ridiculous that in some of the comments on youtube people are making assumptions that the game as a whole will have bad localization just because of that.

which is ridiculous. it will have good localisation like xenoblade chronicles and plus, up to 4 players can play this game, and if this is true, then it is fantastic.

I just found out that they're doing some pointless name changing with the European version of this game. The main character Elza, is now being called Zael and Ruli island and Ruli city will now be called Lazulis island and Lazulis city. They may have made some name changes in XBC but those were only for characters with weirder names like changing Fiorung to Fiora and Carna to Sharla. I don't see whats wrong with the name Elza or the names Ruli island and Ruli city.

Because they are better names?

Ruli? Wow, that's bad. Really bad. Whoever named that city should be ashamed.

Ruri = the Japanese word for Lapis Lazuli. As in the colour/precious stone. They just translated it so, you know, it'd actually make sense to people who can't read japanese.

Edit: And, Elza is a female name in english. That'll be why they're changing it.

they should've kept the original names for those characters. to me elza is elza, not zael. just because they are localising this game for western audiences in english, why change the names at all? it's just not necessary.

Thanks, I didn't know about either of those. I can understand the former but if they can have a male character called Jade in Tales of the abyss and a male character called karol in Tales of Vesperia with the names remaining the same in the English versions then I think they should have kept Elza's name the same when its a pretty obscure name.

I'm looking forward to it.
Don't care about names being translated. Whatever. Just glad the game is coming.

To be honest, I really couldn't care.
As long as the game's good, I don't care too much what the characters are named.

I can understand why they're changing the town names, but to be honest, I don't think it's a good reason to be changing Elza/Eruzas name, but it was the only one I could come up with.
I really didn't know it was a female name in english without looking it up, and realistically, I don't think it'd have been a problem leaving it as Elza. It's really not uncommon for rpgs to change to more...English friendly names for no apparent reason,

It's just a name.

The character doesn't change at all, just a name.

Calm down, the are other things in the world to worry about.

My guess is that it won't be as groundbreaking as Xenoblade is, yet I'm very curious about this game.

With kind regards,

Word on the street is that the AI in this game is really bad, which makes the game far less appealing to me. That's not the only problem I've heard either, just the only that stuck out to me.

My hopes are high. Lost Odyssey was one of the best console RPGs this gen. (not like that was hard to do when all the good stuff is on handhelds.)

WAT!

This article from Gonintendo mentions a special edition that contains an artbook and sountrack CD, the CD only has 7 songs from the game though. Also, The last story seems to be doing pretty good on Amazon's list of upcoming games as it got into the top 10 but is now in the top 20.

I'll have to look into the Last Story a bit more - I read a bit about it last year when it got released in Japan, but have lost track of it since. However, since I'm a real sucker for collector's editions, I'll probably end up grabbing it on release.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.
