    The dev team was extremely lazy with the region differences between US/UK. The US games is using all of the UK text. If I wanted to play it in English-UK I would have purchased the EUR copy. In fact, I stopped playing my ROM because of it. I then start playing my US copy and it's the same damn text. "organisation" "defence" and others. Even as I type this my Chrome is throwing flags on those words because they aren't English-US spellings. This is bad especially for kids playing it since it teaches them the incorrect way to spell words here.

    EDIT: Apparently I have to clarify because people can't seem to understand or read correctly. I played Eur ROM a week early in anticipation of my US version arriving last week.

    So you're so upset by a few misplaced "U"s that you refuse to play a game that you didn't actually purchase?

    The characters also speak with UK(ish) accents. This teaches kids the incorrect way of speaking.

    Ban this sick filth.

    "In fact, I stopped playing my ROM because of it. I then start playing my US copy and it's the same damn text."


    US = Defense
    UK = Defence


    Not true at all. There's no reason this should have been moved either as it was a discussion regarding a game. Nintendo wants to region lock games? Then they need to follow their own rules.

    I agree with you 100% here. Although the title should be changed if it's moved back to the 3ds section

    I like the accents tbh.

    Anyways, it's the same language, hardly something to complain about. At least it's not locked to Japan or sth

    Does it really matter that much? Just treat it like the rare typo, there aren't THAT many words that are different. Hell, I tend to randomly use either UK or US English when writing, depending on the word and whether I feel like adding an extra u. (yes, I know that's not a good thing)

    He's right, though. It's not that big of a deal, it's two dialects of the same language. It's like a Texan complaining that someone from Iowa says "everyone" instead of "ya'll"

    Verbal and written communication is a whole different thing. But whatever, I'm just going to drop it. I just didn't expect them to keep the same script from EUR to US. I am positive Xenoblade on the Wii didn't but I'm too lazy to boot my system up to check.

    I mean, I get where you're coming from, but it's very much a British game (at least character-wise), so I don't see where the main issue is

    Back in the day when the US got game releases months (or even years) ahead of UK/EU we usually got US English translation. It seems petulant to complain on one of the few occasions when the boot is on the other foot. Like others say, the dialogue is still perfectly legible even if it's not in the only local variation you find acceptable. Just be thankful it's in English and not Engrish.

    Also, if kids should be protected from 'incorrect' spelling then maybe they should be kept away from the internet where ppl tlk lik dis.
