Persona PSP: I sure hope this is an in-joke

   0
So Atlus sent out its newsletter, announcing an update to the Persona PSP remake website. It was the usual stuff, new videos, music, full soundtrack pack-in etc.

They also announced that the characters page had been updated with three new profiles. I was rather off-put by one name, though:



LOL WUT?! !

Thankfully, the website itself has the proper, as-promised translation in place.

For the uninitiated, "Mark" is the virtual poster boy for the bad old days, when "localization" meant that everyone and everything needed to sound properly American. As such, Masao became Mark, and a Japanese kid with a stupid hat became an African-American kid with a stupid hat.

Other name-switches included:

Nanjo -> Nate
Maki -> Mary
Hidehiko -> Brad

And the king:

Takahisa Kandori -> Guido Sardenia

On a related note, let's watch an episode of Casey and Friends:
