Titan's Japanese name Edit

I'm a bit puzzled by how this character's Japanese name is represented here and in other places on the wiki. Screenshots and various other Japanese sources tell me that the name is spelled 「ティターン」 (titān, based on the Ancient Greek pronunciation), but several articles here on the wiki claim it's spelled 「タィターン」 and pronounced "taitān". The thing is, even with the 'te' having mysteriously been replaced with a 'ta', the small combining form of the 'i' means it's supposed to replace the vowel sound of the previous kana and we'd still end up with the "titān" pronunciation.

So what's up with that? JediMB (talk) 13:11, June 24, 2015 (UTC)

Our Translations subpage lists his name as タィターン, Taitān?. This enemy's Japanese name in Record Keeper is ティターン, Titān? which you sourced with the NES image (good job). According to this video, ティターン, Titān? is correct (I assume that the Japanese text is the same across all 3D versions since it's a port), so タィターン, Taitān? is wrong as this enemy's Japanese name. This has now been corrected. Thanks for the heads-up. ;) —Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 20:37, June 25, 2015 (UTC)
