MMO-Champion - Blizzard Product Slate, WoW in Brazil, Mobile Armory for Android
Blizzard Leaked Product Slate (Mostly) Confirmed
Blizzard finally announced the release of World of Warcraft in Brazil (see the press release below) 5 months after I first mentioned it in a news post, proving once again that if I throw enough random stuff on the front page I will eventually be right every now and then!

For more information, you can check the previous news posts about that leak:



Also, some dates probably shifted a little since the release of that slate and realistically, the WoW movie probably got kicked out of the schedule for the moment.

    ...They actually translated the -names- of places and NPCs in-game to brazilian portuguese. That's just wrong.

    I'm not sure about everyone else, but all they've ever done to me is stab me and shred things. The only redeeming features to cats in general are funny Youtube videos.

    "Garrosh Grito Infernal"

    Does anyone else find that funny?

    On topic: It looks like it actually may be shaping up to be correct, assuming we hear about the next expansion at blizzcon.

    But there's also Starcraft 2 X1, which I assume is Heart of the Swarm (the first sc2 expansion)

    They actually TRANSLATED THE NAMES??!?!?!?!!??! Jesus that is just sooooo wrong.

    It sounds really bad if youre portuguese speaker, mostly people will laugh at "Ventobravo" or "Correventos".

    In portuguese we dont have composed names like, "Storm/Wind" or "Wind/Runner" as we dont have anything like "Ranger", so i dont know what blizzard was thinking doing this, lol

    one thing to compare is Iceland which is (Gelo, portuguese of ice, and Terra/terreno, portuguese of land) acording to Blizzard Iceland should be translated as "Geloterra" or "Terra de Gelo", but in reality its "Islandia" something that sounds like Iceland. When IDK if i made it clear, meh. ;/

    Re-read what he wrote - they do not have compound names. they do have a word for wind.
