Elden Ring will not be dubbed in Italian

Directly from the Italian Steam page of Elden Ring we learn some interesting additional details on the awaited work of FromSoftware and Bandai Namco. We discover first of all that it will be a "difficult" game, although this is not surprising at all, but to leave some fans doubtful is an information regarding the localization process: we thus learn that Elden Ring will not be dubbed in Italian, on the contrary of the previous Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Hard to say why the publisher and the developer have made this decision, forcing the Italian players to settle for the dubbing of the voices in English and the classic translation of the subtitles and the interface in Italian . Probably Bandai Namco will have decreed that for this particular production it is not necessary to invest funds for dubbing, limiting the localization team to transpose the texts in our local language.

It would still be a strange motivation, especially because the previous Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was completely dubbed in Italian, with some respectable voices too. There is therefore the possibility that the voice actors of the Elden Ring characters have a particular value, which has convinced the great publisher to keep their voices in other regions as well. In any case, it is really a shame given the great expectation that fans of the genre place in the title.

In fact, we remember how, after a lot of anticipation and waiting by fans of From Software's works, Elden Ring was finally unveiled during the Summer Game Fest 2021, to the amazement of all lovers of the genre. The production signed Hidetaka Miyazaki and George RR Martin showed itself with a first gameplay trailer and a launch date, highly anticipated by fans: Elden Ring will be released on January 21, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC.

While waiting for Elden Ring, you can recover Dark Souls Remastered on Amazon at an affordable price.

Winona jury to watch video

Jurors in the Winona Ryder shoplifting trial in the US were today expected to watch a video featuring the Hollywood actress on a pre-Christmas shopping spree in a posh store.

Prosecutors began showing the surveillance tape yesterday as Ryder's trial got under way in

Beverly Hills Superior Court.

More footage showing the movie star shopping in exclusive department store Saks Fifth Avenue was due to be presented to the court today - Ryder's 31st birthday.

Yesterday the court heard a security officer claim the actress told him she stole merchandise from Saks as practice for a forthcoming film role.

Kenneth Evans told the court that after Ryder was caught allegedly shoplifting she apologised and claimed: 'My director instructed me to shoplift in preparation for a role I'll be doing.'

Mr Evans was the first witness to give evidence in Ryder's trial on felony charges of grand theft, commercial burglary and vandalism.

He described how he watched the star's every move as she walked around the store picking up armfuls of clothing.

He said he became suspicious because she was

carrying several shopping bags and picking up so much merchandise.

At one point, Mr Evans said he saw the defendant place a designer hat on her head and go into a changing room wearing it.

He said there was a price tag dangling from the hat when she went into the fitting room but when she came out later it had gone.

Ryder, whose films include Mr Deeds, Little Women and Girl Interrupted, denies all the charges against her.

In an opening statement yesterday, prosecutor Ann Rundle told the court how the actress arrived for a shopping expedition at Saks on December 12, last year fully prepared to shoplift.

She said Ryder was carrying scissors, a large garment bag and tissue paper with her when she went into the store.

While there, she bought a total of four items but stole a further 20 worth 5,560.40 US dollars (£4,000), Ms Rundle told the jury of six men and six women.

She said the case before them was 'a simple case of theft'.

Ms Rundle said of Ryder: 'She came prepared to buy with her cash and credit cards but unlike other shoppers she also came with the intent to steal.'

But Ryder's lawyer Mark Geragos insists his client is the victim of overzealous security guards.

He will argue that a Saks security guard, who claims she peered through a changing room door and saw Ryder snip sensor tags off goods and stuff them in a bag, is lying.

In his opening statement he claimed that several Saks employees, who are witnesses in the case, changed their stories after the videotape on which Ryder is seen shopping was found not to show any evidence of the actress shoplifting.

The Beverly Hills Police Department and the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office initially claimed the videotape showed Ryder removing sensor tags and stuffing stolen goods into her bags.

But after a television show obtained and ran the video, it soon became apparent there was no such evidence on the tape.

It was after that, that the witnesses changed their stories, Mr Geragos told the court.

The case before Judge Elden Fox is expected to last between five and seven days.
