Talk:Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/English Trophy Differences

Is this page necessary?

Without meaning to sound whiny or anything, is an entire subpage detailing minor text differences between English localisations really a necessity when a notable example of how they differ could simply be shown on the main page under the "Misc. Differences" category? Particularly when a few descriptions either remain unchanged or just add a random comma? Just checking to see what the mods' consensus on this is before taking any further editing action. Crashandcortex (talk) 15:48, 28 October 2014 (EDT)

We could export the complete difference list into another format, like a downloadable text file. It doesn't necessarily have to be a wiki page.Theclaw (talk) 17:02, 28 October 2014 (EDT)
"Minor" text differences? Did you even read the page? Most of the trophy descriptions are completely different between regions!
Anyway, this wiki DOES document regional changes, and I think these are significant enough to get their own subpage. --BMF54123 (talk) 19:12, 28 October 2014 (EDT)
Well I was the one who added most of the descriptions to compare :P Thanks for letting me know anyways BMF, will get to work on compiling these together as soon as I can (being a Brit certainly helps make this easier for me since it's generally the NTSC desriptions shown online!).

I could contribute with descriptions from the NTSC version if you can't find all of them online. Devann (talk) 08:05, 29 October 2014 (EDT)

Different US Lucas description?

For whatever reason, my copy of the US release has a different description for Lucas (and possibly some others). I have a digital version, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Before adventuring, Lucas was a timid, cautious boy. His journey has made him a stronger person. Maybe he met someone to spend his life with... Hang on--we're moving way too fast! For now, remember that Lucas and Ness are favorites in the hearts of EarthBound fans.

My copy says that too. Physical.

Interesting. Devann (talk) 23:24, 8 November 2014 (EST)

I can explain this: I grabbed the US trophy descriptions from SmashWiki, and I believe they might have used the descriptions ripped from the Japanese files (which already have many English assets in there pre-translated) and assumed they would be used internationally. I'm actually quite surprised it took until now for somebody to mention a contradiction!
Just to make sure, do most of the descriptions on the page differ from the descriptions shown in your games, or is it more the exception than the rule? I only have access to my PAL copy, so if there are more US differences, it'd be immensely helpful to know! Crashandcortex (talk) 02:25, 9 November 2014 (EST)
Seems to be more the exception than the rule, but I don't feel like going through all my trophies right now. --Lilfut (talk) 17:43, 9 November 2014 (EST)
