character names (Nezha Sunah)


i didnt pay attention first but then listened to voice lines and it was clearly spoken 'Nata' there. indeed ナタ is Nata and センガ is Senga. i wont dig deep and say that Chang'e is actually Kouga etc but why change these ones for glb? is it Nezha and Sunah in original kr server and for some reason was changed for jp? thx for replies in advance

    They are based on Chinese and Korean mythology.

    Chang'e (嫦娥) is the Chinese Goddess of the Moon.
    Nezha (哪吒) is the Chinese patron god of children.
    Sunah (선아) is the Korean pronunciation of Xian'e (仙娥) which is a female hermit.

    Kouga, Nata, and Senga are their Japanese pronunciation of the names.

    Both JP and GL are based on KR, and JP doesn't always translate the same if the origin of the mythology is Chinese.
