Sq. Enix clarifies Cait Sith is pronounced Cait Sith

Sq. Enix clarifies Cait Sith is pronounced Cait Sith

The dialog surrounding Cait Sith, one of the vital contested names inside the Ultimate Fantasy 7 prolonged universe, has taken a dramatic flip. On the social media web site that I insist on calling Twitter, Sq. Enix posted the next clarification:

“In Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth, Cait Sith is pronounced ‘Kate Sihth.’”

For some Ultimate Fantasy followers, this assertion might learn alongside the traces of calling water moist. The truth is, I think about many who performed Ultimate Fantasy 7 again in 1997 naturally pronounced the title like that. Nevertheless, many (naturally) consider the title “Cait Sith” to be a reference to the corresponding Celtic folklore creature Cait Sidhe.” That is usually pronounced like “Ket-Shee,” which some have since utilized to the remote-controlled Shinra machination. However with Sq. Enix’s clarification, it seems that in an effort to be as appropriate as doable, some followers have argued themselves into an incorrect pronunciation as an alternative.

Word that Sq. Enix particularly says that Cait Sith is pronounced this fashion in Ultimate Fantasy 7 Rebirth. Clearly, this opens the door to saying Cait Sith as “Ket-Shee” within the authentic Ultimate Fantasy 7, the put up provides no clarification on that entrance. I’m not staff “Ket-Shee,” I simply take pleasure in chaos.

Simply within the prime 5 of most controversial pronunciations in Ultimate Fantasy 7

Actually, arguing over tips on how to pronounce issues in Ultimate Fantasy 7 is a time-honored custom at this level. If you happen to have been on a message board through the mid-2000s, saying “Aeris” as an alternative of “Aerith” was tantamount to saying that you simply hated everybody with three or extra toes.

Additionally, calling Tifa “tih-fuh” as an alternative of “tee-fuh” might begin wars. Sooner or later, I caught the “tih-fuh” bug and nonetheless say that regardless that I do know “tee-fuh” is appropriate. I’ve been almost punched within the face no less than as soon as because of this. No, listening to it pronounced in Ultimate Fantasy VII Remake has not helped.

So, as foolish as it could appear, Sq. Enix’s clarification right here does have context. And whereas the voice acted script of Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth would naturally reply this query, no less than we are able to put this one to relaxation early. Now we simply want Sq. Enix to make clear whether or not “Safer Sephiroth” ought to truly be “Sefer Sephiroth” or “Savior Sephiroth” to sate followers as soon as and for all.

Ultimate Fantasy VII Rebirth launches on February 29, 2024 on PlayStation 5.
