If you ask me, I'd say people are a bunch of whiners. I come from Iceland and we just learn English instead of forcing everyone to translate everything for us. That way, the most of us here understand two languages perfectly. Even though we don't start English classes until 5th grade, we still understand English pretty well before that, thanks to undubbed/subbed videogames for one.
All countries should try to speak good english but you can't blame the people who can't speak it when they are taught not no.
Uh, I don't think that's how it works, these aren't "extra" subtitles. They don't have an option to switch the subtitle-language. They will only deliver versions with English subtitles to UK, Spain, Italy and any other European country who get the game (and most likely Australia) except France and Germany, who will get versions of DDD with French and German subtitles, respectively.
So when I get my German copy, I will only have German subtitles and no access to the English or French ones.
Sorry, but that's not right. The European version games contain all subtitles - the game simply selects the language on it's own based on the language the system is in. When you adjust the settings of your PSP so that the home menu is in German, the game will have German subtitels as well. Change the settings to "English" and the game will have English subtitles. Same with Re:coded and Days. It will probably be the same for 3D.
Sorry to hear that people are upset over this, even though it is probably not suprising, when the 3DS hardware sales in Italy and Spain are pretty mediocre...
Excuse me, I'm Italian and I'm so angry... It would be great if you sign in this petition: Kingdom Hearts 3D Localization for Spanish and Italian fans Petition
I know that an English version of KH3D is not a problem, but for us is a bit irritating... Please, help us. Show SE their error.
P.S. Please, forgive me for my bad english. I'm really sorry...
I changed the language of my DS to play Days in English, because the German translation was so bad it almost made me cry. It was an offense to both German language and Kingdom Hearts.Oh, really? Certainly didn't know that. (Cuz why would I want to change the language of my system, lol?)
I didn't claim it was smart on their part now did I?So you think Square made that move because there have been sold not enough 3DS consoles in these countries for their taste?
Even that would be pretty shortsighted on their part, as I sincerely doubt that the folks working at SE are so stupid that they don't realize that many people might be convinced to buy a 3DS because of Dream Drop Distance coming out in their country.
Funny you mention Days just now as I finally started to play that entry for the first time (taking a break from Kid Icarus: Uprising for a while) this week. I'm just up to Day 118 (119?) where they get vacation and I didn't yet find much to complain about the German dialogue.I changed the language of my DS to play Days in English, because the German translation was so bad it almost made me cry. It was an offense to both German language and Kingdom Hearts.
This sounds harsh, but they probably think that the people that shy away from buying the game because of no Italian/Spanish subs are not worth the afford of translating the game for them. It's sad, but that's what a lot of publishers seem to think.
And I doubt that a lot of people who want the game that much that they would even buy a new handheld for it would refrain from doing so just because the game has English subs only. Some will of course, but most fans will probably buy it regardless.
So be it. Less money for Square.I do agree with what others said here however that now "boycotting" the game won't help issues at all.
If the worst case happens, Square might even decide to stop releasing KH games in Spain and Italy completely.
