New Areas[edit]

Previously the line was...

"With the exception of new areas, Ogre Battle: Legend of the Zenobia Prince is almost identical to March of the Black Queen in appearance and game play."

But then it was changed to...

"With the exception of some added new areas..."

I think the latter implies that the original game's areas are played through again in this game, and that a few new areas are just scattered within. Is this the case? I haven't noticed it if so, but to handle this properly, screen-shot comparisons can be found on the following sites:

Ogre Battle

Ogre Battle Gaiden

The closest I've noticed are that scenes 4 and 9 from the latter sort of resemble The Kalbian Peninsula ("Snow Fields") and Antalia ("Imprisonment") from Ogre Battle. Is there something that can prove that these -- or any other levels in Gaiden -- are the same maps as the ones from the first game? (I realize that they could be).

Unless there is, I think the statement should be either the original, or the current version:

^ Would I be right in assuming this is the original Japanese title and its English translation? If so, if the game was never released in English as the article states, where does the "Legend of the Zenobia Prince" title come from? (I wouldn't know if this is some accepted fan thing; I hadn't even heard of the series until about ten minutes ago) Bonkywop (talk) 04:00, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

i just came across this... that's really strange. i have no idea where this title could possibly come from, maybe an old announcement of a planned localization? (talk) 03:25, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I suggest renaming the page since the current title has no source and was never officially localized. "Ogre Battle Gaiden: Prince of Zenobia" should suffice since it's a correct translation of the actual title of the game, falls in line with the existing localizations, and gaiden is already a well known gaming term.--LordVanya (talk) 04:07, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
