I don't understand, why are so many of the "best written" japanese games of all time complete made-up fanfiction shlock in western regions? Trails is just one example, but there are many localizations that are just as bad but praised everywhere.

>Trails
>Ace Attorney
>Persona
>13 Sentinels
>Fata Morgana
>Higurashi and Umineko

I am confused, is there any japanese game that is well written??? Is there any media with an actual translation (not "localization", mind you) that is actually good??? This is so frustrating.

    Have you tried FF7R? It's not a translation it's a rewrite, no joke

    It's not like they don't have popularity and praise outside of the English rewrites.

      No, OP is onto something

      >Trails
      Has never been popular in JP
      >Ace Attorney
      Insanely more popular and profitable outside of JP
      >13 Sentiles
      Infamously flopped inside JP
      >Fata Morgana
      Literally who? series in JP
      >Higurashi and Umineko
      Higurashi was very popular vut everything after it was a massive flop

      Persona is the actually only popular series in Japan now and outside Japan? I guess the original script is actually decent? Its fucking cringe in english

          high ranking =/= high number of sales

    There is a big difference between "a few sentences are fanfiction" and "the literal entire translated script is fanfiction"

      All the series I mentioned in the OP are 100% pure fanfiction. Entire characters, storylines and backstories were changed from Japanese to English.
