Splatoon shared images of Dedf1sh (also called Acht) and used they/them pronouns. In the Japanese account, it translates to “he” but could be a mistranslation. I hope it’s a mistranslation. It’s scary that Nintendo used they/them pronouns to one person. Nintendo could be getting woke, which is something I feared the most. Is it because they said that Shiver is female and want to make up for it? Could this be the end of Nintendo?
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Actually it may not be that cut and dry. Yes they are hiring Woke localizers, But there are at least 3 possibilities as to why: 1, Nintendo of American is deliberately going woke with third parties. 2, there could be a lack of competition with localizers leaving the only people who run the show are woke. 3, Nintendo is being forced to have woke localizers due to recent events of the woke agenda being pushed into the video game industry.</p>
Lack of choice and affordability might be playing into that role. We can’t just assume that Nintendo is woke or going woke but that also is a possibility. More information is needed.
And like I said, in the Japanese Twitter account, or X rather, it translates Acht to having he/him pronouns. But it’s translated by Google which isn’t very reliable. Hopefully it ends up like the Shiver situation where these losers thought she was non-binary, but Nintendo confirmed Shiver is a girl. Also, pronouns work differently in Japan.
I didn’t notice the pronoun thing in Pikmin, as it wasn’t a huge story driven game like Xenoblade. As long as this doesn’t affect our enjoyment of the game (like Xenoblade) it should be fine. Also like Xenoblade we can leave the woke stuff to Twitter weirdos and just focus on gameplay story. Nintendo is very protective of their IPs. They won’t let them be destroyed by wokeness.
It’s going to end up like the Shiver situation where these losers thought Shiver was non-binary because Nintendo didn’t refer to her with gender specific pronouns, then Nintendo confirmed that Shiver is female and all these nimrods lost their shit. Japanese pronouns work differently from what I heard.
