The Way They Refer To Themselves Changes (in JP)


In Japanese, there are many way to say "I" (first person pronoun). The pronoun they use for themselves changes according to their personality in Japanese.

For example, a female peppy personality villager will call herself "Atai (アタイ)" whereas a female snooty personality villager will call herself "Atashi (アタシ)". A female who calls herself "Atai" sounds old fashioned & a bit crude. Although not a one-to-one comparison, it is somewhat similar to the different nuance between Northern US vs Southern US English accent.


↑ Chow using the very masculine pronoun "Ore" to show off his "cranky" personality.

The DIY Recipe Villager Gives Changes


The DIY recipe villager gives to you changes by their personality. You can get DIY recipes from the villager by visiting their house and talking to them when they are crafting away at their workbench.
