To be honest, if the developers are not "Neutral/English" in their native country I would rather the elements of lore that they add to the series NOT be "Neutral/English." Each culture in the world has unique characteristics and stories people outside that culture may not be aware of, and I think it's great that they get to put their own spin on things that they make so the rest of us can experience that small little piece of their culture.Originally posted by simon_the_hun:
Nival Interactive shamelessly used names from russian culture. Now the hungarians add the name Sandor and others probably. wtf. if chinese are to develop the next game, let's get prepared for san-sui hero and tong-ping town. It's pathetic. I want some neutral/ english names HoMM3 like not eyesores svetlana, slava and sandor. HoMM it's not your history book guys ! Ubisoft should choose developers more carefully .
So if a Chinese developer were to take on Heroes 7 as you suggest I would hope that they take us to a continent of the Heroes universe which is structured through the lens of a Chinese developer's viewpoint on the Heroes universe. Not only does it increase the scope of the world, it keeps it fresh too.
So I say make it unique. Break from tradition. Provide us a new perspective!
