I have no problems with the translation, really. It does sound a bit odd, but considering the content of the game, it makes sense and is accurate to the idea. ^^

Anyone who is interested in this game would have no issues with "God" in the name. It's a niche new IP in a small market, who's company's games aren't even sold in any major stores.

I don't really care about the name either way, but the reasoning for it is just plain stupid and cowardly.

The problem isn't the people who are interested in the game though, it's the people outside of that.

It's fine.

Though I wonder how God is portrayed in this game. Disgaea 4 painted him as a Lawful Evil entity.

You'll see God typed up in the game more times than you can shake a Bible at. The game is about guiding people's fates, and how that is a paradox against the concept of Free Will. Renya is God, there's no question about that.

It's a really cool story, honestly. And that's really just the tip of the iceberg.

We're messing with free will? That... sounds REALLY AWESOME as part of a game, actually. I'm looking forward to this even more than before.

In the meantime, when can you guys tell us the rest of the character names? =D

Hmm, is the trailer we used at our press event circulating anywhere? I think we tried to finalize a lot of the names for that. Mostly straight translations, but using the typical -iel suffix for angels and -ael suffix for demons. Some exceptions may apply.

The trailer you released before focuses on the angel girls (Lilliel, etc.), but didn't name either of the butlers or any of the enemies. If you have an alternate trailer, you could probably upload it to your Youtube account...?

As far as I know, the butlers are "Rakiel" and "Galtion."
Villains... Well, depends on what you think a villain is... Frunetti, Varael, and Satanael?

What about the girl in the lab coat, or is she one of the names you already mentioned?

...Which is which? XD Mind adding some ID tags? Rakiel sounds more like the serious-looking blond guy, so Galtion would be the older one?


Actually, could you name the ones on this page in order...? Might be easier. ^^

>_> Let's see here... I'm leaving out the Japanese family names, but they'll be in the game as-is.
Satanael
Frunetti
Varael
Mysiel
...Misery...? The floating thing. Looks different in-game, to me.
AND MINAMO!!!! She's awesome. But I'm biased.
