English to Portuguese: Nioh's Setting
General field: Other
Detailed field: Games / Video Games / Gaming / Casino
Source text - English
Before we talk about Nioh, we need a context about the scenario in which it takes place. Unlike many games, with fictional worlds, Nioh has a realistic setting with multiple poetic licenses.

The setting was based on a Japanese period called Sengoku Jidai (国 時代 時代), which translates as the Warring States Period. This was the most troubling period in Japanese history and some of the most notorious Japanese historical characters are from this era. A time when samurai lived at war and a peasant could rule all of Japan. As Sengoku Jidai lasted more than a century, I will only mention what really matters to understand Nioh's scenario, which is already at the end of the period.

First of all, you have to explain the Japanese names, the most confusing part for most people. In some Eastern countries like China and Japan, the surname comes before the person's name, so that the name is like this: Oda (Family Name) Nobunaga (Personal Name). This happens because of the importance that the family has in these cultures, since before you, always come your ancestors. Be warned, that any Japanese names that come, will have the family name before the personal name.

There were several famous names at this time. Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Ishida Mitsunari, among others. In this text, there will be only the most important names in the battle of Sekigahara, which is where Nioh will have its climax. Without further ado, I will explain everything you need to know to get a better understanding of the scenario.

After the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (臣 秀吉 秀吉) in 1598, there was a power vacuum. His heir was too young to rule, and in a period of political instability, it is impossible to have a five-year-old ruler, even if Hideyoshi had struggled to secure it. He established a council of 5 regents, Tokugawa Ieyasu (川 家 康 康), Maeda Toshiie (田 利 家 家), Mori Terumoto (輝 元 元), Ukita Hideie (喜 多 秀 家 家) and Uesugi Kagekatsu (景 勝 勝). Of these, Tokugawa was the most powerful and likely to dominate Japan thanks to the fact that he was exempt from serving the Japanese army during the failed attempt of conquering China, which is another great subject. Because of this, he had more money and more troops than all the other regents. Hideyoshi also appointed five regional administrators, also called Bugyô (奉行), they were Ishida Mitsunari (三 成 成), Natsuka Masaie (束 正 家 家), Maeda Gen'i (田 玄 以 以), Mashita Nagamori (田 長盛 長盛) And Asano Nagamasa (野 長 政 政). Ishida Mitsunari was already an administrator at the time of Hideyoshi and obtained the antipathy of many by the position that occupied, often speaking in place Hideyoshi himself, and still, there was remorse for the failed China. As Tokugawa planned his Shogun arise, Ishida plotted against him. In 1599, after an assassination attempt failed, thanks to the information network that Tokugawa had, Tokugawa's allies tried to kill Ishida, who ran to Tokugawa and got forgiveness. This is a point where many people differ in interpretations. For me, Tokugawa saw that a final battle for Japan as inevitable and leaving Ishida to unify the forces against him was the best option. A known, predictable and infamous enemy was far better than an unknown force. In April 1600, William Adams arrives in Japan, and his story joins that of Tokugawa, towards the battle of Sekigahara and the unification of Japan, with some Youkai in the mix.

And that's the story that precedes Nioh's major events. A small part of Sengoku Jidai, but very important to understand Japan as it stands today.

Antes de falarmos de Nioh, precisamos de um contexto sobre o cenário em que ele se passa. Diferente de vários jogos, com mundos fictícios, Nioh possui uma ambientação realista, com várias licenças poéticas.

A ambientação foi baseada em um período japonês chamado Sengoku Jidai (戦国時代), que se traduz como Período dos Estados Beligerantes. Esse foi o período mais conturbado da história japonesa e alguns dos personagens históricos mais notórios surgiram nessa era. Uma época onde samurais viviam em guerra e que um camponês poderia dominar todo o Japão. Como o Sengoku Jidai durou mais de um século, só irei mencionar o que realmente importa para entender o cenário de Nioh, que se passa já no final do período.

Antes de mais nada, é preciso explicar os nomes japoneses, a parte mais confusa para a maioria das pessoas. Em alguns países orientais como China e Japão, o sobrenome vem antes do nome da pessoa, de forma que o nome seja assim: Oda (Nome da Família) Nobunaga (Nome Pessoal). Isso acontece por causa da importância que a família tem nessas culturas, já que antes de você, sempre vem os seus antepassados. Esteja avisado, que todo nome japonês que virem, terá o nome da família anterior ao nome pessoal.

Existiram vários nomes famosos nessa época. Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Ishida Mitsunari, entre outros. Nesse texto, haverão apenas os nomes mais importantes na batalha de Sekigahara, que é onde Nioh terá seu climax. Sem mais delongas, irei explicar tudo o que precisam saber para terem um entendimento melhor do cenário.

Após a morte de Toyotomi Hideyoshi (豊臣 秀吉) em 1598, houve um vácuo de poder. Seu herdeiro era muito novo para governar, e em um período de instabilidade política, é impossível ter um governante de cinco anos, mesmo que Hideyoshi tenha se esforçado para garantir isso. Ele estabeleceu um conselho de 5 regentes, Tokugawa Ieyasu (徳川 家康), Maeda Toshiie (前田 利家), Mori Terumoto (毛利 輝元), Ukita Hideie (宇喜多 秀家) e Uesugi Kagekatsu (上杉 景勝). Desses, Tokugawa era o mais poderoso e o favorito para dominar o Japão graças ao fato de ele ter sido isento de servir ao exército japonês durante a falha conquista da China, que é outro ótimo assunto. Por causa disso, ele tinha mais dinheiro e mais tropas que todos os outros regentes. Hideyoshi também apontou cinco administradores regionais, também chamados de Bugyô (奉行), eles eram Ishida Mitsunari (石田 三成), Natsuka Masaie (長束 正家), Maeda Gen'i ( 前田 玄以), Mashita Nagamori (増田 長盛), e Asano Nagamasa (浅野 長政). Ishida Mitsunari já era um administrador da época de Hideyoshi, e conseguiu a antipatia de muitos pela posição que ocupava, muitas vezes falando pelo próprio Hideyoshi, e ainda havia remorso pela falha na Campanha da China. Conforme Tokugawa planejava sua ascensão para Shogun, Ishida conspirava contra ele. Em 1599, após uma tentativa de assassinato falhar, graças a rede de informação que Tokugawa tinha, aliados de Tokugawa tentaram matar Ishida, que correu a Tokugawa e conseguiu perdão. Esse é um ponto onde muitas pessoas divergem em interpretações. Para mim, Tokugawa via uma batalha final pelo Japão como inevitável, e deixar Ishida para unificar as forças contra ele era a melhor opção. Um inimigo conhecido, previsível e infame era muito melhor do que uma força desconhecida. Em Abril de 1600, William Adams chega no Japão, e sua história se junta à de Tokugawa, rumo à batalha de Sekigahara e à unificação do Japão, com alguns Yokai na mistura.

E essa é a história que antecede os eventos principais de Nioh. Uma pequena parte do Sengoku Jidai, mas muito importante para entendermos o Japão como existe hoje.

Bio

Born in Rio de Janeiro from a family of two teachers, ever since I was a kid, I was learning. I never had a strong education in English, but since 10 years old, I was already watching cartoons in English and at 18, had already become completely fluent despite the very basic English taught at schools.

Learning is what I do, and thanks to that, I have developed a strong vocabulary that might help translate many different subjects. Some of them might include Marketing, History, Geopolitics, Geography, Philosophy, Tourism, Education, among others.

I discovered recently that I was already doing translations 2 years ago through my personal blog. I have decided to join this industry and continue improving my already existing skills.
