I've found a lot of characters names are written in Katakana from material I've consumed, !s well as foreign words, which if it's Comal, the name falls under both!Why is Comal in katakana? Is the prince named after the Mexican cookware?
I guess any names that are supposed to sound foreign, even if made up, would be written in katakana.I've found a lot of characters names are written in Katakana from material I've consumed, !s well as foreign words, which if it's Comal, the name falls under both!
A more direction translation would be Komāru. Which also sounds similar to the Japanese name Komaru, but I don't think it would be spelled like that if his name was supposed to be based on the Japanese name Komaru.
It SEEMS like he is named after Mexican cookingware, but there's no way to know for certain. It falls in line with the food naming scheme, though it falls out of the French dessert naming scheme.
That's so mean...They're saying the soundtrack is awful and that the fact that FTFTBT didn't release outside of Japan means it's a failure.
But you have a point, it's best to just ignore it!If you need backup the cavalry’s right here.
Jk let’s not harass people online, some people are just born without taste.
For a remake, I agree. I was referring to a sequel after a remake came out, though.I prefer that the minimalistic RPG mechanics in FTFTBT remain the same. All the game needs for a remake are updated graphics/soundtrack and a little more coverage on Richard's role in FTFTBT's story.
Wholeheartedly agree on having more platforming. Those are some of the best parts and challenges of the game.I feel the main focus is on platforming and exploring the world for helpful power-ups, with some health managing. I think making the battle system more complex could ruin the heart of the game.
I do think more animal transformations seem like an obvious thing for a sequel. Maybe some that could help you explore more areas and encourage backtracking? Idk what would be a good idea, maybe a lizard that could climb walls or something.
Permanent party members could be fun but also complicates the battle system, so I think if we get party members they'd be more for the story or like the insta-kill body guards for a brief time. It COULD be cool to have the game change a bit at points when you get a new party member, albeit briefly. Just to spice it up. Like maybe you get a nerdy party member and suddenly the battles are simplified rpg prompts.
But that's just some stuff I thought up, idk what would be the best direction to go! Having a sequel with a different approach could be fun, too!
Ooohhh! Yeah, they had stuff like... running away and drinking potions, and also throwing wasabi to stun people, but it's not that deep and it just helps you, and I never even used it lol.Wholeheartedly agree on having more platforming. Those are some of the best parts and challenges of the game.
When it comes to the battle system, I'm not talking about being able to select attacks or control Sable (other than being able to escape), but rather, add effects that could happen during the course of battle to give it more variety. Maybe enemies could induce a couple of different status effects whose effectiveness varies depending on the transformation. If you're facing a venomous scorpion or spider that can poison, then Sable would want to transform into a snake or a creature with a thick hide where the venom wouldn't have any effect. Perhaps the terrain you fight on can impact the tide of battle too. It's really little details like those that enhance how you have to make pre-battle calculations such as if you have enough power or if you're in the right transformation. I really like that feature and it'd be about adding to the strategy, not the mechanic of fighting itself.
I have to agree with you on the party members, though. Maybe they could enhance Sable's stats in some way rather than be full-fledged members so he can still fight while they're around. They don't have to be permanent either, but it gives me a reason to see Richard more, lol.
26 years later and we're still waiting to "see you again" in a new installment, Sable... hopefully the AT at least got developers brainstorming a revival.
Lip, huh? I'd be unbelievably shocked to see that since Sable's gotten more exposure to western audiences, and even so, Takamaru felt like the obvious retro pick for Sakurai in both western presence and popularity. I'd have a hard time imagining any new retros other than maybe a Mach Rider echo for Falcon, but even that feels like a long shot.Every day, I have been always imagining the day Richard gets revealed as an AT, just so I could have some form of hope on Sable.
Same goes for Lip since I am predicting her for Smash Ultimate, with me imagining the day Windy gets revealed as an Assist Trophy.
That's a great gif! The spritework in this game is so fun, the developers did a great job.Ok I tried embedding the image but I don't know how to so I'll just post the link
I made this gif of Dr. Arewo Stein (Dr. Knitt Witt in the fan translation iirc), what do you think?
edit: Also, I just found this really impressive Prince Sable artwork:
Well, Richard was in Link’s Awakening, but that still wouldn’t explain the difference in popularity. I guess some people just dig bad boys!Yes yes I saw that too! But even more interestingly, I went to the Japanese website source, and it only said Richard, not Sable! I looked throughout the page and couldn't find any katakana for Sable, just Richard. You can try looking at the source yourself.
It's possible their votes were still combined, but it is pretty funny that Richard seems to be the more popular.
So many Sable leaks are breaking my heart... we had that fake website leak the other day and I got so excited lmao. It's nice seeing Sable making it into mainstream leaks but it is bittersweet.Apparently there is a music leak on 4chan, and there is a remix of Slay the Snake in Smash Ultimate:
Anyone know the original 4chan source? The remix sounds familiar, but in a lower pitch. I'm sure I heard it before on YouTube.
Edit: It's fake. I found the remix.
Honestly, part of the reason I want Sable in is for a retro revival! Didn't Sakurai comment once about considering reviving Takamaru and Sable's games? Sakurai already has that track record with Pit, so leaks clinging onto that is reasonable, in a way.I posted in the Prince Sable thread way back in the Smash 4 days, but I haven't posted in it for the new game. Actually, there's been a bunch of leaks including him with the claim Sakurai is remaking his game which... strikes me as an odd thing to bandwagon. I'll be happy if his Assist Trophy returns honestly.
