The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I’m proud to announce that I’ve been part of the localization team for the game everybody is talking about:

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Reviewers worldwide have labelled it a masterpiece (with a 98% score on Metacritic) and in Spain they’ve also stopped to praise the dubbing and even sometimes the localization in general.

The Spanish texts are absolutely fantastic and the dubbing is top quality, to the point that you often feel like you’re watching an animation film. (3DJuegos)

It’s also fun to see how a walrus-related pun we used to laugh about in the office has become one of the screenshots most shared on social networks. I hope you will enjoy the game too!

I have updated my ptranslation portfolio with my latest published works. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

 

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Tomorrow is the European release date for Code Name: S.T.E.AM., a new Nintendo videogame in whose localization I’ve had the pleasure of being deeply involved. It’s a third-person strategy game developed by Intelligent Systems, best known for series such as Fire Emblem, Advance Wars and my much beloved Paper Mario.

I’m glad to report that some reviews are praising the localization work. Nintenderos in particular mentions the translation as one of the strong points of the game.

There’s a free downloadable demo available in Nintendo eShop, so I hope that all of you who own a Nintendo 3DS will give Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. a try and, especially, I hope that you enjoy it!

Sexual diversity in videogames

I’ve already recommended the Extra Credits videos at The Escapist magazine, where many aspects of videogame writing are dealt with week after week. Yesterday’s issue discusses a rather forgotten theme in videogames: sexual diversity.

Your life in a flash

Today’s links appeal to writers looking for new approaches to videogame narration, but also for all those nanowriters in need of word-count detox for five minutes.
