The Legend Of Zelda: Japanese Version Still Rocks

By  | 

Yes, the reason being just because. The Japanese are almost always better than their remakes/translated versions of their English counterparts. And it’s also clearly seen from the action-adventure game series, The Legend of Zelda. Well, it’s still made in Japan, anyway.

Oh, and fun fact, did you know that the Pols (the rabbit-looking things in the game) are meant to be destroyed not by arrows, but by you talking into a microphone? Well, now you know, and you can find out more of these fun trivia through the Legends of Localization Book 1: The Legend of Zelda, whereby Clyde “Mato” Mandelin writes about Zelda. It’s the book for you if you practically live and breathe Zelda.

Mandelin might have been a familiar name to you, because this guy’s the one that’s responsible for translating Mother 3 to English, so you’ve probably seen his name somewhere if you’ve been searching for a translated version of video game. You can check out the excerpt of the e-book below to get a taste of how the book’s like:
