Nintendo Land’s Monita Has a British Accent in the UK Version

monita-nintendo-land

This is Monita. She’s a robotic tour guide and sort of the mascot of Nintendo Land. She… follows you wherever you go in the Nintendo Land plaza. It’s actually kind of creepy.

It’s a lot less creepy, however, in the European version, which replaces her stilted, overly mechanical vocals with cooler, softer British acting. I’ve got to say, I was a bit surprised that Nintendo went the extra mile to further “localize” the game for the UK. It’s a nice touch that, if it didn’t require massive increases to game budgets, would be nice to see for other titles.

    I don’t know, this sounds just as computerized and stilted to me. Maybe I’m just used to British accents.

    It kind of sounds like she’s out of breath now lol. Either way, she’s still creepy and a stalker.
