Official website blunders

Just having some fun.

Above is a link to the official North American website for Suikoden: Tierkreis. If you look at the cast information, you'll see that the hero and Liu are both 16, when in fact the game makes it clear that the hero is 15, having been found as a newborn 15 years ago by Rajim. Liu cannot not be 16, as he was not yet 12 when he ran away from the Scribe Village, three years ago. Presumably he was 11 then, possibly close to 12, making 14 or 15. To be 16 he would have to have run away when he was 13, in which case he would have is tatoos.

Also, according to the website, Chrodechild is a dude.

This just proves that the Konami North America could care less about Suikoden. It's not nearly as successful here as it is in Japan.

Or they just don't check for facts. Especially that Chrodechild blunder. T_T

With mislocalisation rampant in the franchise, if the games saying those two being 15 years old is indeed a correct translation, this might actually be a step forward in the series.

There are games out there that deliberately mistranslate characters' ages in games for "correctness" purposes though. Lyn from Fire Emblem comes to mind.

Page 236 of the official Tierkreis Character Guide(which I recommend btw, even if just for the beautiful exclusive artwork in here if you're a fan of the characters) lists that Liu is 16 years old.

Page 14 says the main character is 15 years old.

Page 56 says Chrodechild is female.
