I'm sure most of you know about the hidden Cukeman dialog in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Have you ever wondered how that dialog compared to the Japanese version? Let's take a look!
You know me, I like short names the best…
It can display millions of polygons!
I definitely need it, as soon as possible!
Japanese Version (basic translation)
I just figured “well, why not”, y’know?
Yeah, I know.
Already got it, actually.
…That concludes this collection of R-Moto-isms.
It has absolutely nothing to do with the game!
Wondering who R-Moto is? Turns out one of the devs on the game was Masanao Arimoto. Sounds like a perfect nickname for that person! Looks like the English localization took the same idea behind the original Japanese comments, but the localizers went with dialog that was spouted out by various team members here. Thanks to Clyde for the heads up!
