Editor’s comment: the Korean voice-over script has been translated very accurately, and the voice actors’ pronunciation is also very clear. Turning off the subtitles while playing the game rather helps to concentrate and be immersed into the game… Gaming while hearing the conversation, instead of reading subtitles, only now I came to realize how great blessing it is.

Editor’s comment: the overall Korean localization quality is excellent. A lot of slangs and expletives appear in the script, thanks to the background of the game, and the translation of such language is also very smooth. It is quite surprising that everything was translated as it is, into a realistic every-day language.

Editor’s comment: not only the Korean subtitles, but also the Korean full-voice-over must be mentioned. The slangs and expletives of the 18+ rating game was translated and dubbed nakedly. This adds a sense of immersion to the story.
