DevelopmentThe game was first titled Symphony of Light and it was in development for the Dreamcast. Around 1999, Climax announced they changed course for a release on the upcoming Playstation 2. It would allow for four players to participate simultaneously. As the title clashed with an existing game series, ‘Suteki’ was suggested, being the Japanese for 'beautiful, cool, gorgeous'. In the end, it became Sudeki.
It's also funny to know that if you would translate the English word 'steak' into a Japanese katakana word through the linguistic rules, you end up with 'suteki' as well.
InaccuraciesIn Transentia, in the Research Center Dungeon, The party splits up. When Ailish leaves she is wearing her level 3 armor. Yet if you look at her after she leaves, you will notice she is wearing her level 1 armor. And since it is impossible not to have her third level armor and you cannot not re-equip lower level stuff this is clearly a mistake.
