The article released last Friday included the story of the CDPR Korean team and how they are dedicating to the successful launching of ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ in Korea. They highlighted the philosophy of CDPR which is ‘the gamer is on the top priority all the time’ and that is the reason the local offices over the world exist. They listen to the Korean gamers through various channels and try to reflect their opinion and Korean components on the game.
For the questions about localization, the CDPR Korea mentioned the collaboration with Musai Studio and the effort to provide the most immersive play for the Korean fans. They explained the localization of ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ was clearly not a simple project – not only because of the massive volume of the story, but because of the tons of proper names from the Cyberpunk world and the unique tone and mood itself. Especially, the slangs and profanities are almost newly created through the combination of the vocabs from the Cyberpunk world and the Korean swearing so the users would be stunned while playing, they said.
Musai Studio has already been aware how important CDPR counts their principle, “gamer-oriented”, from the collaboration for the previous projects such as ‘Gwent’ and ‘Thronebreaker’. ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ was no different. The localization team of ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ has put their best effort and affection to bring vivid experience in Night City to Korean gamers.
‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is only a couple of months out from release. We, Musai is also looking forward to seeing the masterpiece as a gamer. Get ready and see you in Night City!
