Introduction

Dark Souls III Lore Translation Guide

©Copyright 2016-2017 David Christy
Version 1.2

Hello all, and welcome to my FAQ! As with my Bloodborne Lore FAQ, this guide is an attempt to accurately document all of the lore text in the game, in both the translated English and the native Japanese, as an easy reference for bilingual Soulsborne fans. Unfortunately, I am not fluent enough in Japanese to offer a full, comprehensive translation and analysis of the Japanese lore, so currently I am merely compiling the text and leaving that aspect to the efforts of others. But I am always open to the idea of a collaboration, so if anyone out there is interested, please let me know!

This guide is now part of a series! Other entries in my Lore Translation Guide series can be found here on GameFAQs, and include...

  • Bloodborne
  • Dark Souls III

The best way to contact me is via my e-mail address at drummerdavebackup [at] gmail [dot] com. This guide is meant to be a resource for all you fellow lore-seekers out there, so if you are looking for a particular bit of Japanese text or dialogue that I haven't added yet, please let me know and I will add it as soon as possible (1-2 days tops). Also, please contact me if you notice any errors in the guide or simply have a suggestion for how to make the guide better and more accessible to the Soulsborne community. Don't forget to mention this guide in the subject line and please no attachments. Thank you!

I hope this guide serves as a convenient reference point for all you lore-junkies out there. I've enjoyed putting it together, and I hope you find enjoyment in it as well!

Version Info

■ Version 0.4 (4/25/16): Bulk of item lore transcribed, in both English & Japanese. More will be added as I make progress towards 100% game completion. Submitted FAQ to GameFAQs.

■ Version 1.2 (11/15/16): Long time since I've done an official update... The first DLC is finished! Well, everything but the Japanese NPC dialogue, which I will nab on my next playthrough. Other that that, finally transcribed all of the endings and pretty much every bit of significant lore that I'd missed before (in both languages). Now only a few minor holes left to fill as we all wait restlessly for that 2nd DLC....
