    Her English name is “Metallia.” It even says so in a screenshot here.

      Siliconera… they love to mess up names on purpose to piss us off

        nah, the writer is just drunk when writing the article (note all of the lovely spelling mistakes)

      Doh, I missed that they’d made that change, since we covered the Japanese version so much. Fixed, thanks!

        Its really sad that they changed her name, its amazing the absence of one letter can take so much meaning away and make a name bland.

          I dunno, I actually like Metallia more. But what does my opinion matter – I can’t keep up with NIS games nowadays.

          I’m on board with Haseyo. The change is actually a good one for the English release. Her name in the Japanese version is Rika. Due to a certain argument, she gets her name made longer by changing it to Me-ta-ri-ka. There is a large amount of dialogue built around this change as well.

          So for the English version it actually works REALLY well to have her name be “Lia” pronounced as Leah, and have the Meta- added for Metallia.

          I think that keeping it as Metallica would have been a bad move (lawsuits aside) because being reminded of a crappy sellout buttrock band by such an awesome character would suck.

            If there were going to be a lawsuit, it would have happened already. Metallica did not make up the word, so they cant lay claim to it. Its the latin word for metal, they wouldn’t win in a suit.
            But I see what you mean, given that its not her innate name, makes the name change less intrusive, however I play NIS games in Japanese, I’m gonna hear Metarika and see Metalia. It was annoying in Ni No Kuni that names were changed there too, wasn’t sure who the English was talkimg about at times. My sister in laws name is Rika, insulting that they would change a beautiful name.

    Combat really does remind me of Ys.

      The customization of building your combo sequence by equipping and leveling different weapons is a lot of fun, adds just the right amount of strategy on top of the action play-style.

    Very disgaea like music. Need to see more hack and slash gameplay. Will keep an eye on this

      Tenpei Sato.

      The name you’re looking for is Tenpei Sato. That is why it sounds the way it does.
