How do/did you pronounce "Shantae"?

Post by Nai255 on Wed Sep 18, 2013 6:35 pm

The Risky's Revenge iOS trailer makes it official that it is in fact pronounced "shawn-tay" (shh + on),
but truth be told, I've heard others pronounce it "shan-tay" (shh + an).

Not that I have anything against personal pronunciation preferences, just saying.
Me? I've always pronounced it the first way ever since the GBC days. How about you?

I've been pronouncing it the same way all this time. O: Didn't know I was doing it wrong.

Not sure if any fan would be nitpicky over something little as a mispronunciation.

As german, the latter always seemed the natural pronounciation to me.

People have done worse with Samus's pronunciation, and it doesn't help that Prime 3 Corruption's pronunciation and Smash Bros. Announcer's clash, so I don't think even Retro Studios knows which one is more appropriate. It probably doesn't even matter, if that's the case.

I would be amazed people still squabble over name pronunciations. Twisted Evil Youtube's bad to have arguments in the comment section of every video anyway, so it wouldn't matter if you pronounced it right. Somebody with the wrong pronunciation would chastise you, then get owned by other commenters with downvotes! It's all too amusing.

Pokemon name pronunciations? I probably wouldn't want to go there either. Twisted Evil You'd think games like Coliseum with announcer voices would be ease lots of doubts, but there is two whole new gens recently that probably haven't been verbalized officially yet, oh boy.

Thaha, yea, your right. The Pokémon problem. Twisted Evil
The problem is - that even in the anime (german dub) they make pronounce mistakes..Like, seriously!

Totally forgot to say hi a couple posts back, Rakuraiji, oops :#

That wouldn't be the first time a European language got a mistranslation. Nobody's looked at Tails' gender in Sonic 2 the same way again after the French manual was revealed to call him a girl by mistake. Twisted Evil I can't begin to imagine what a haven of typos and mispronunciations dubs/subs in other languages can be.
