It does when you take into account that it's precisely because Latin used a V to make a W-sound and an I (which later became the J, because they were originally the same letter) to make a Y-sound that we have the name "JeHoVaH" today?
I've heard that there's been yet another version of SMT III released in Japan alongside Devil Summoner II, where Dante is replaced by Raidou. I don't think the article mentions that. Has anybody heard about it?
Seems unlikely that they will now, considering Devil Summoner 2 is already out. Besides, I'm fairly sure the only reason Nocturne made it to the US in the first place was Dante's inclusion. Certainly the game could stand on its own now, but it's not nice to edit him out of history like that.
Nice to see that they gave Raidou pierce, though. It makes him not totally useless.
old topic bump for thing likely mentioned a thousand times...
Isn't there a Windows version of the original Persona?
Or rather, I know there is, I just don't know what the heck is up with it, and I haven't seen it mentioned here at all. Like a lot of Japanese console-to-PC ports before the PS2 era, there seems to be little English information out there about it.
Yeah, Asuka Gaiden was ported to PC, and I think they did a remake of the first Game Boy game too (probably using some of the same assets). The latter even had a demo available for a while, I think....and one of the two had online feature of some kind, ranking or something. Keep in mind that some of this info is second-hand from a few sources, like Lord Gek, a pretty cool dude who will show up at pretty much any forum that Shiren is ever mentioned at. He generally knows what he's talking about, though, and I'm pretty sure there's still evidence of PC versions on Chun-soft's site. Ah, here: www.chunsoft.co.jp/games/asukapc/index.html
Nothing on a remake of the first Game Boy game, but I might have imagined such a product.
over at the tiny, rarely updated popanime Megaten wiki, someone put the following 'differences' for the PC version of Persona: PC Version Differences
* The player can distribute the stats for all party members, not just the main character. * Characters do not automatically select a new target if their original target is killed before they act. * Experience after battle is distributed equally among party members. * The player can turn off battle animations. * There is no voice acting.
I checked Megaten Haven and found nothing, but I think the boards got wiped around the start of 2008, so even if anybody talked about it the topic's probably lost forever.
