Developer Tries to Fix Switch Game's Bad Translation, Makes It Worse

A month ago, we brought you the news that Vroom in the Night Sky, one of the few Nintendo Switch games currently available, would be losing its highly questionable but ultimately adorable bad English translation and getting a rewrite. That rewrite is now here, and it’s… worse, somehow. Advertisement Pro localizer Clyde Mandelin has been tracking the saga of Vroom at his website Legends of Localization, and has meticulously cataloged the differences between the original version of the game that launched in some regions on March 3, and the current version. The rewrite has fixed a few lines (most notably, “Buyed!” has been changed to the much more correct “Sold Out!” in the game’s shop), but it’s hurt others, and it’s also introduced misspellings and formatting errors. Advertisement Here’s a scene from the original version: A little unnatural, yes, but you sorta see what they’re getting at. It’s clearly a “well, whaddya expect” sort of wisecrack. Maybe you could rewrite this as: A Girl: Jeez, there’s nothin’ but sand here! Her Blob: Well, I mean… it is the desert. You know, READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Breath Of The Wild Speedrunner Gets Cocky, Pays A Heavy Price

Conquering a game’s challenges over and over again can make you feel invincible. With a new world record in sight, one Breath of the Wild speedrunner decided to get flashy with the final boss. Too bad Ganon was having none of it. Advertisement Ikkitrix is the current world record holder for Breath of the Wild’s Any% category, which rushes through the game as fast as possible. His fastest run completes the game in 40 minutes and 18 seconds. On track to improve that time in a recent attempt, he sets up for a dramatic finish. SPOILERS AHEAD Facing off against Dark Beast Ganon, Ikkitrix decides to run an updraft with his paraglider to fire one last light arrow into the monster’s face when this happens: Dark Beast Ganon is something of a victory lap after defeating the four Ganon Blights and the dangerous Calamity Ganon. You mostly just ride a horse around and shoot a few light arrows. You don’t even need to use the paraglider to shoot the final target; you can just leap from your horse. Even if you do miss, you can just wait for Ganon to shoot a READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

The Last Splatfest Actually Influenced Splatoon 2's Story, Holy Shit

During the final “Splatfest,” an event where Splatoon players are divided into global teams, most of us believed we were just voting for the best waifu. Turns out, we were helping decide the future of Splatoon’s lore without knowing it. Advertisement Yesterday night, the official Splatoon site uploaded a “Prologue” page for something called “Squid Sister stories,” presumably a mode available in Splatoon 2: If you recall, the last Splatfest asked players to vote between the in-game pop idols, Marie and Callie. Players pretended it was a grueling war that was right up there with Captain America vs Iron Man: In the end, Marie won. Afterward, Splatoon stopped receiving updates, so most fans believed that was that, just a fun vote for the best girl…until the Splatoon 2 trailer rolled around. For a split second, the reveal trailer showed Marie facing away at the camera, Callie nowhere in sight. Nobody knew what it meant, but some joked that the Splatfest had torn the sisters apart. Advertisement Welp. We just got confirmation that the Splatfest will influence Splatoon 2 somehow, though we don’t know the exact details yet. Still, though: having a multiplayer event affect the overall game feels surprisingly modern…

Every Switch Port Deserves the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Treatment

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the biggest Nintendo Switch Game That Isn’t Zelda so far, comes out this week. I’ve been playing it religiously these past few days against our comrades-in-arms at IGN as well as other industry folks (I see you Greg Miller!), and I love it. Along with being arguably the best looking game Nintendo has ever made, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is loaded with characters and karts and race tracks from across the entire Nintendo (and Mercedes) spectrum. The new battle mode options have a really great and topical anti-police vibe. Being on Switch, the game also brings a console-level experience to a portable. The Deluxe subtitle reminded of the similarly acclaimed console-to-handheld enhancement Super Mario Bros. DX. In my opinion, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best Mario Kart, especially if you’ve never played it before.
