"Part of me wants to say the only changes in localization will be text and voices.

However, part of me wants to say they are gonna swap OK's default outfit with his alternate "Luneth" outfit and rename him to Luneth and redo his portrait to match. My reasoning is simple. Japan first encountered the Onion Knight in his 8-bit form, which sported no visible hair, 2 pixels for eyes, and red armor. Thus, we have the Onion Knight in the Japanese version. Outside Japan, however, no one has ever known "the Onion Knight" (let's keep emulation out of this conversation here, k?) and the only Onion Knight these people have ever known was Luneth in his white & blue Onion Knight outfit. Since outside Japan, the people knew Luneth first (and only), it just makes perfect sense to me.

Anyone else thought about this?"

My Reply:

"I Agree with you jak...x']..
i mean...they all need names..>__<..

In my opinion, they should name Warrior of Light too...LOL..
Dunnow what but something tells me that the name, "Light" fits him..
The Emperor would be named Emperor Mateus (Obviously~..>_<)
Dunnow about Cloud of Darkness though...x___x
She really doesn't have a specific real name soo yeah..just stick with her name..x']

Warrior of Light - Horn Dragnal (Horn from his head ornament and Dragnal by playing around with garland's name)
LoL.

And I think they'll stick with "Onion Knight" because...this isn't the past anymore.
Everyone knows what's an Onion Knight now.
And the English version (blegh!) will be released in the future.

Plus we should stop calling it English version, and just call it US version.
Seriously, they screwed up the FF timeline. So it should be called US version.

Wow I covered past, present and future with one post.

Hmmm..probably...
but they need names...seriously...
Just merely calling them of what they are is really bothering me
and something ain't right about it for some reason...x__x

It's like not calling a person's name..(Which really annoys me even in real life~)
Instead of saying, "Hey Luneth!"..
It's "Hey YOU!"

it's kinda messy but u get what i to intend to say right?..
and lol! about WoL!...you made that up right..x'P?
I'll stick with the name "Light" though..(Inspired from the DEATHNOTE series)..

Hmm i don't get it...x___x
What do you mean ENG version screwed FF timeline?..
What's the difference of it to US version since it's only the same language.. ?

FF1 US = FF1 JP
FF2 US = FF4 JP
FF3 US = FF6 JP
FF7 US = FF7 JP
FF4 US = Non-existent
FF5 US = Non-existent
FF6 US = Non-existent

I'm basing this on the original releases. (Old console systems anyone?)
The US porters are geniuses. True geniuses. Not only do they change the names, they also changed the numberings. This caused a lot of havoc for awhile. Especially when FF7 was released in US as FF7.

Hence, US version. That's why we have US, Europe, Asia, Japan, Korea, Latin versions.
Okay strayed away a little bit....

Well heck giving Onion Knight a name would be cool though. Although he rightfully doesn't have one.

chronological way of arranging..x']

And they ditched the original FF2, FF3 and FF5 along with it. Wonderful.

Sure they could use a name, thus enforcing my statement. US version, not English version. If you change the contents of the original game, especially the hero's name, etc...that pretty much makes it US version rather than English version. Because you can't find those names in the orignal Japanese versions.

If Cloud of Darkness had a name...it should be something sexy I guess. She's actually the most eye appealing female character in Dissida, except for her tentacles. Tentacles attacking girls good. Girls wielding tentacles...bad.


They just had to censor this too, couldn't they? As if that even counts as nudity in the first place.

Ditched?...Now did they really..?
In my point of view, like what i said, they just organized it
for it to be chronological..>_<

FFI - FFV (Crystal era)

But FFVI and the other parts next to it were arranged by the japs so..
no complain there..>_<
(though there was a confusion of FF6 being FF3) ..
It was fixed by the japs,,,
Because US pipz wanted to have FF1, FF2, FF3, FF4, & FF5....
have stories involving crystals...
FF6 - FFXIII is already the japs choice soo..yeah.no complaining there..>_<

LOL about cloud of darkness..:))...Yeah...She's hot~...O__O..yeah..those tentacles make
her look really weird...

And about the censor, they just did that because there was this issue looooonnngg waayyy back~..
Involving 10 year old kids & below asking their their older friends & family with this kind of thing..like,
"Why's the girl in the game showing her a$*?"...Yeah you get me..
soo...The government of US forbade these kinds of things bcuz we have final fantasy underaged players
in this world..soo..yeah~
