Most localizers in the game industry aren’t well known, or at best are simply in-house for the wider developer/publisher, but the Shibuya-based 8-4 has made a name for itself over the years with some truly top-notch translations. With classics like Tales of Vesperia, NieR Automata, and Undertale under their belt, we’re always wondering what the company’s been up to lately: and the answer to that is apparently Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes.
Humbled and immensely proud to announce that I was a producer, editor, and a few other things as part of the 8-4 localization team for Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes!
A lot of people put a massive amount of work into this thing, hope you all enjoy it as much as we did! ✨🦁 pic.twitter.com/racs7tKyA7

That’s right, after mainline Three Houses was handled by Nintendo Treehouse, 8-4 has returned to the FE series after previously holding the reins on Shadow Dragon, Awakening, and Echoes. Given that those three titles had some of the best dialogue in the whole franchise, we can imagine Three Hopes’ lines have that little extra bit of wit and bite that makes it so endearing and enduring.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is out now.
