A rare thing in video game translations is a line of text being attributed to the wrong character, or the character’s name being messed up in some way. This is usually because the translator inserted the wrong control code. Here are two examples:
On the left, Kain isn’t in the party and his appearance later in the scene is supposed to be a surprise. On the right, the translator messed up and didn’t enter the name control code right.
I’m curious, though – are there any other games out there that have had this issue? I want to include a few more examples in my FFIV comparison thing when I get to that part, but these two are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.
