Swag Watch for Feb. 4, 2012
I just updated the MOTHER 2 vs. EarthBound section again, this time with a page about the item names, which you can check out here. A few differences here and there, most of them are probably familiar to a lot of fans by now.
As I posted the page, I realized I should probably look through the descriptions sometime too, since we’ve seen that at least a couple items have pretty different descriptions between the two games. Getting all the Japanese item description text might be a pain though, so we’ll see.
It looks like what’s left of the entire project is:
- Finish up the “battle stuff” section
- Maybe look at item descriptions
- Add a page for names
- Add a tl;dr page for people who don’t care about the tiny nitpicking of the translation
- Fix stuff/add details sent in by readers over the years to some pages
So there’ll be at least a few more of these comparison updates to come it looks like!
