Oh, yeah, I mean I never paid attention to that in the previous games, never saw the kanji version, that's why I'm only realizing it now. I'm only comparing it to the actual myth.
... I just realized reading this that the kanjis they're using for Orochi is absolutely not the usual ones. The hell ? It's written as... distant spine wisdom ? Instead of the normal giant motherfucking snake.He was never written as giant fucking snake in Kanji iirc. It was always supposed to be "Look at this snake god guy whos called Orochi but is not THE Orochi".In fact, the western localization is the only one that outright names him the Serpent King or whatever,he's just Demon King or god or whatever in the eastern version. This was supposed to hint at the fact that he was originally someone else (Which turned out to be Yinglong,which I found dissapointing cause I had no clue who Yinglong is).
Are we becoming gods now ourselves?Dunno if our characters will become actual gods but they're using divine weapons so maybe.
Also the guy behind Suikoden is supervising the story. I never played Suikoden games but I heard they're good so uhhhh hype i guessI absolutely loved 1 and 2 and Suikogaiden 1 & 2, they're still somewhere in my list of best games of all times (well, the two Gaidens are "just" visual novels), but I never played any of the other ones, the characters and designs didn't have any appeal in my eyes but I loved the characters from 1 and 2 (and the story, yes, and the gameplay, and everything else). That doesn't specifically build my hype for it because I was fine with WO's story so far and I don't particularly know what to expect from him these days in WO's setting, but that's certainly not turning me off.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
