"Wish my cousin looked this cool"

Atlus USA have launched their official website for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. The site includes a whole host of goodies to get excited about, including in-game video, screenshots and information on characters and storyline. Currently only three characters and one scant piece of information on the story is available, but just seeing these videos should be enough to get any Megaten fan hot under the collar.

The website promises updates such as free wallpapers, avatars and, of course, more information on the story and eleven main characters that will inhabit the game world, so be sure to check back regularly.

Now go look!!!

You're gonna give me an ego, not that I don't already have one mind

Na, I just figured that I'd chip in a little extra since my translations are a bit slow. Plus at least this way people will see the site is at least a little active  smokin

For the record, I changed the thread subject and headline (was Devil Survivor Site Goes Live)

Good job with Wordpress btw. I just changed the formatting a little so to make adding translations easier (all the translations go in the same post)

Woops, I thought the website url should be more prominent, and I noticed your original formulation had the link at the end, which seems useful... so I made some changes. Let me know if you'd like to change anything I changed. Even though you're an Editor I think, I don't think I have it setup for Editors to change published posts.


edited: Having the url in the post messed up the column justification bad (you might've noticed) so I stuck it in the title. Seems to work ok.

Visiting the website, I noticed the pitchfork font for the Es razz

I wonder how using Devil in the title jibes with what I think is Atlus USA's policy of not calling the devils "devils"??? They call them demons instead from what I can understand. Will Atlus USA be rethinking that policy now I wonder?? Is Devil finally a safe word in The States... in the 21st century?? tongue

The changes all look okay, I especially think the url at the top looks good.

As for the pitchforked E's I noticed that as well. With today's overly PC climate I doubt we'll see the devils in referred to as devils in-game. In a way the game already treads some thin ice with a few religious groups thanks to the imagery and naming of some of the devils (Lucifer and the image for Ganesh standing out in my mind). I seem to recall an argument somewhere about using the word Devil to refer to Ganesha, when the god is primarily a peaceful one in Hindu religion.

Atlus will probably stick with the norm and use Devil in the title and demon in-game. But that's just life I suppose. Using the word demon is apparently a lot more acceptable than using the word Devil. Which I find weird all in itself

Hi, this is the italian translation for the post:D

 
"www.atlus.com/devilsurvivor/
Nasce il sito ufficiale per Devil Survivor di Atlus!
21 aprile 2009 by wolfzau at www.digitaldevildb.com

Atlus USA ha lanciato il sito ufficiale di Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. Nel sito sono presenti un gran numero di chicche per alleviare l'attesa;) :video in -game, screenshots e alcune intriganti informazioni sui personaggi e la storia.

"Magari mio cugino fosse così cool...."

Attualmente sono disponibili solo i profili di tre personaggi e qualche informazione sulla trama, ma i video dovrebbero bastare a scaldare qualunque fan di Megaten.

Presto saranno disponibili nuovi aggiornamenti, wallpapers, avatar, e naturalmente altre informazioni sul gioco e sugli undici personaggi principali, quindi assicuratevi di controllare spesso!!!

Oh, e non dimenticate di dare un'occhiata al sito

I don't think devil is weird at all... demon seems much weirder. I think the problem in the states is just that now days fundamentalist hear "devil", and think "the devil" (or really their devil / aka Satan) ...which only makes sense used in the singular anyway. Demon sounds scary, devil just sounds like... "oh you devil" ...besides the real value is in the pop hook, which you just can't get out of "demon". Truth is in a good translation, devil and demon would be used. The diff though is Devil is a catch word like Pokemon... where as demon is a generic term. Eg. a horde of demons, versus that devil (as in a specific devil with peculiar/desirable stats and such)

All the accessible entities in the traditional games are devils. And that goes back to Digital Devil Story (same as the name of this website) ...so basically Atlus USA is stupid, retro-actively or not... or at least ball-less in it's inability to exercise any artistic integrity in the face of ridiculously trivial controversy. Ganesha is a devil too... less face it, if you're dealing with giant elephant faced creatures or radiant attractive beings, you'd be wise to regard them all as a bit weird and untrustworthy, ie. devils. I rest my case goodnight
