Not to worry, friends. I'm sure there are plenty of no-lifers willing to roll at least 70 accounts, if not 100+.

I'm sure plenty of them will be part of this thread, too.

In semi-interesting news, the FGO US Facebook page is soon to hit 50k likes, which as part of their launch campaign means more free quartz and "Big News"

Part of me suspects this Big News was originally meant to be the release date, but I suppose we'll see.

One of the first events they did to promote the game in Japan was to let players pick a 4* servant for free. Could be that.

The stream didn't really have any real news other than saying that Artoria's name in game will be Altria. How the gently caress do you get Altria out of Arthur?

Who the hell is localizing this? Because it's not like we've gotten officially localized games that have already used Artoria or anything... oh wait, WE DO.

That's also far too close to Altera, who is a completely different Servant.

There's no info on who's localizing this game and the Aniplex USA dubs and translations of the anime in general use Artoria so it's really confusing as to why whatever team they slapped together for this game is doing this. I know Altria is the name they throw on figures sometimes and was on the Japanese Extella website which leads me to think it's a bunch of Japanese dudes who have never looked at how Fate fans in the west have been experiencing the series. Like I would almost understand this if it were just Unlimited Codes and extella, but we have anime that Aniplex put money into themselves to bring to the west, so it doesn't make any sense.

It's said in Artoria's profile that her legend originates from both Arthur and Lucius Artorius Castus who is the actual historical basis for Arthur. Arturia is a proper name, but so is Artoria and incorporates both aspects of her origins well. That being said Altria means literally nothing and does not allude to either part, so it begs the loving question of if anyone on the staff speaks English natively.

On the stream they said it was from Type-Moon themselves so I'm going to go with "Not native English speakers." This happens a lot with Bandai series like Gundam too such as changing Puru's name to Ple for no real reason.

Captain Baal

Fwiw, Ple is used in the one dub that refers to them and some of the localized Gundam games and does incorporate what they are somewhat decently. Puru is so ingrained into fans at this point though that it might as well be the official name. That's neither here nor there though, I'm ready for the SAO Hollow fragment level translation on this.

So at the Aniplex booth I inquired into why they went with weird romanizations like "Altria" rather than "Artoria" and apparently all romanizations have to be approved by the people on the Japanese side so that's why they're weird.

Bedivere's NP is Agateram instead of Airgetlám for similar reasons. It's whatever in the big scheme of things and probably shouldn't be used as an indicator for the quality of the rest of their translation but always amusing when the Japanese side tries to keep its engrish running. They're in too deep to suddenly change all of their own merchandise to proper english and guess they figure may as well keep it the same in NA just in case they start dumping the same merchandise there too.

For Fire Emblem I still laugh whenever I remember that the official romanization for Donnel, who is Doni in Japan, is Denis.

If that's the case then the translation is probably fine, it's just unfortunate they feel the need to do that.

It's not like everyone necessarily watches the stream, and the big issue is again we're looking at just under 10 years of official english releases of works about this property that have all used basically the same name, and this one is a radical change - and not for the better. You can get Arthur out of Arturia(or Artoria), whereas Altria is just a mess in english. Again, it also reads way too close to Altera. If the change is coming about via actual Type-Moon interference then it doesn't really cast too many aspersions on the rest of the translation (aside from what else they might be interfering on), but it's still really annoying.

I mean, if it was just stuff like the fan translation of Fate/stay night using that name it'd be one thing, but these are products Type-Moon has overseen and signed off on.

People are upset now, but down the line, when Nasu unveils Takeuchi's ultimate wet dreamwork, the Grand Dominion Seiba, Artoria/uria, I'm sure there will be nothing but sagely nods and understanding as to why this Seiba was named Altria.

Cntrl+F for SJW only brings up somebody with a Jack avatar arguing that she shouldn't be censored--gee, I wonder why--and one other guy who seems kind of like a dick anyway.

I grailed Angra to level 96. And Geronimo might be bad in-game, but he's a true american hero who deserves respect.

Edit: Clearly, Angra best Avenger and best boy. Robin Hood is best Archer. Based Cursed-Arm Hassan is best Assassin. Kintoki is best Rider. Cesar is best Saber. Jaguarman is best lancer. Best caster is the hardest... let's say Merlin, but I have a soft spot for Andersen and Babbage.
