Legends of Localization Getting Noticed!

As I’ve been slowly putting the Legends of Localization site together over the past few weeks, it’s actually started to get noticed by some people in the gaming press, which is pretty exciting. For example, Gametrailers’ Pop Fiction series featured the 256 worlds of Super Mario Bros. 1 trick that I posted about a while ago:

The guy behind Pop Fiction actually got in contact with me a few weeks beforehand and I provided more info, pics, and such. So it was really cool not only getting mentioned in something, but also playing a tiny part in it 😀

Legends of Localization’s also gotten a few big mentions on Kotaku in the last few weeks, particularly thanks to Jason Schreir’s “Random Encounters” series. One post involved JRPG censorship:

And another featured the “Mistwalker trick” that I’d posted over on the Final Fantasy IV section:

It’s a lot of work putting together these localization thingies, so it’s cool to see the word slowly getting out little by little. Hopefully I can keep digging up more neat stuff like this as time goes on too 😀

  1. The Kotaku JRPG one was what made me come to your site a few weeks ago. Been slowly working my way through everything. Absolutely love everything I’ve read, you make it all so darn interesting and I thank you for that. FFIV is the only one of yours I have left to read.
    On FFIV Mysidia section now.
    Seriously good job dude. Keep up the amazing work 😀

  2. You were also mentioned on Ray Barnholt and Alex Fraioli’s podcast No More Whoppers. That’s how I found the site.
