Where as in other mobile games where the original version is ahead of the localized version I wanted the events that were happening in the Japanese version, I agree with their choice to go through the events more or less as it was originally released.

I was going to say "...but what about the UBW anime?" but I can't reasonably disagree with the author's characterization of their own enjoyment of the franchise, which I don't doubt generally speaking.

I would actually be pretty sad if they had just dumped it all at once and we ran the same version that Japan has. It would be short changing us on really getting to experience the first 2 years worth of content the game has. I feel like the complaining isn't so much about being behind but people upset they can't keep all their stuff if they switch to the English version.

Actually read the whole interview for once, cause Fate is my favourite series. As for FGO, I played near when the first English release came out and was pretty addicted to it for a few weeks. Then I pretty much stopped playing for a week or so after beating lvl 40 quests over and over again (first time I did that at Master lvl ~18)...

Now getting back into it, gotta expand my collection and finish the story lol. Wish there were Fate/kaleid Liner Prisma Illya additions, but I doubt those characters could be Servants or anything important like that. Maybe some Craft Essences, and a killer Mystic Code Wink.

I wish the question of other countries than North America had been raised. Europe is still out as far as F/GO is concerned.

I just have to wonder, if Saber is so beloved even by the staff, why on earth did her name, "Artoria" or "Arthuria" get desecrated to "Altria" I'm not even a big saber fan but this one just bothers me to no end. I mean how can you get your poster girl's name atrociously wrong in English? Mad

Well in any case, I hope they'll reconsider down the line. Shocked

So they want to make Fate more accesible in West, huh? Then maybe an english re-release of all Type-Moon VNs (I'm looking at you Mahoutsukai no Yoru) and Extra CCC, plaese?

Some good questions there, good interview. Getting the people behind the game AND Kawasumi to answer questions is great. I've noticed a few odd things in the translations for the game, like the above "Altria" comment, but it's well done.

Nice catch! I remember reading the responses through in that thread. Such a ride of reactions and overreactions from both sides. This article sure has a uh, changed tune comparatively.

The game itself is amazing, really liked the current Nero event. Definitely anticipating more content. I really want to scout Ryougi Shiki as she's my favourite Nasuverse character, I just wonder when she'll be in the game.

If i remember correctly, probably half a year?

And the Altria thing, that's the name they actually wanted, nothing to do about it. Arturia always sounded strange to me, so ehhh (Still strange cause i got used to Arturia after a while.) That said, i remember some official merch with the name Altria coming out more than a decade ago.

Haha, they're really aiming to encompass the entire Fate universe aren't they?

Half a year for Ryougi Shiki?!

When I started playing NA Fate GO and saw the Saber Altria character(s), my brain actually kinda just assumed that they were just MORE iterations/alternative universe versions of the character with even more convoluted backstories. It's actually a relief that it's just a crappy translation, because I can barely wrap my head around all the Altria variants as it is.
