Why do japanese video games have transliterated titles?
I don't speak Japanese but I learned the hiragana and katakana writing scripts, so I can read those phonetically. What I've noticed is that video games made in Japan will have a transliterated English title instead of a direct translation
For example, I saw a game called Berserk in English. The Japanese title is beruzeruku (ベルズルク) instead of the Japanese word for berserk
Does anyone know why this is?
