Capcom,

I will write you a personal check for 9 Million dollars ($9,000,000) if you chose to localize one of the GS5 characters as "Art Vandelay". Make it happen Capcom!

They'd have to bring Larry back for that one to work. Which I would have no problem with, by the way.

I think it makes it a little more accessible when they localize the location, although if they had started out with it taking place in Japan that would have been fine.
I wouldn't want them to switch continents now, though. That's what I didn't like about the Edgeworth Manga. They didn't keep it consistent. Don't know why they picked L.A., though. The AA city really doesn't look like LA, and the mountainous green regions don't fit with that area either. If they were going to pick a city, San Francisco would have been a much better choice in my opinion.

I meant that that would only work in the Japanese version, where first- and last names are reversed (or it would be Yuu Sue and Mii Sue, which sounds a lot weirder).

Mh, fair enough. Although I stand by it, they could say those are two chinese girls and the names are always written in as Sue Yuu and Mii.
Or they could be two girls who are both charged for a crime and just happen to have the same first name, Sue.

They should have stayed with Japanifornia. Foreign name puns aren't new though look at Juan Corrida, Shi-Long Lang or Ka-Shi Nou for example.

Post subject:  Re: Name Puns!

Shi-Long Lang is actually not really a name pun - at least, not if you don't know that Lang means Wolf in chinese.
And Juan is not a super foreign name, so that doesn't really count, either.

Ness Man (he is a busy, busy busi-ness man .... dammit, I just revealed the pun!)

I'll just throw this out here. These are names I'm predicting for the new characters of GS5, but I'm not betting my insurance on them. Have fun trying to figure out the puns.

Kokone Kidzuki -> Clara Catell
Shinobu Morizumi -> Bunny Scout
Fumitake Auchi -> Steven Payne
Shingo Barashima -> Axem B├╝ller

For some reason, I expect to see a cyborg somewhere in the game. Maybe it's just me, but GS5 really likes to show off its tech as a recurring theme. If Nick doesn't watch himself, he's gonna be left in the dust.

Oh, but Kokone already did that to him. Ha, he's getting old already!

Not quite, but close enough. After someone called him "Darth Payne", I pictured him as the "getting revenge" type of guy (for his brother, obviously). And I couldn't find a suitable "opposite" to wincing, so I played with assonance... and got to stinging. Not the most brilliant pun, but hey, it works.

Why Vincent?

To be truthful, one of my friends came up with it. And I'll wager a guess and say he picked Vincent because it sounds similiar to Winston.
It's not a pun, but I like it, so I put it on my sig.

Where I come from it's not that uncommon to take the mother's name (especially if you're a girl), or both of your parents' names, so maybe I'm being biased.

Still, if another southerner shows up, it's a potential name.

I don't know...I didn't find it to be terrible. Tonate sounds like it could be of Italian origin, of which there are many in the US. But it's a lot less subtle than some other names. Granted, noticing puns is not my strong suit...I didn't figure out Winston Payne's punny name until someone explained it to me (and yes, I felt like a complete idiot. Franziska would've whipped me)

To be fair, it's a lot more subtle than a few others. Will Powers, comes to mind.

Oh well, it's just one guy so far. I'm sure there'll be plenty of great puns in the game.

Eh, I have to agree with Cat on this one. At least both Will and Powers are real names/surnames on their own... Ted Tonate sounds...forced and is just not very creative. If they needed an explosion-related name, there are several routes they could have gone.
