I believe it was because "Midgardsormr" is transliterated as 'midogaruzuorumu' (ミドガルズオルム) in the original Japanese, and the translator likely wasn't familiar with the Norse mythological origins of the name and went with their closest guess.

Wikipedia wrote: In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr (Old Norse: Jǫrmungandr, pronounced [ˈjɔrmuŋɡanðr̥], meaning "huge monster"[1]), also known as the Midgard (World) Serpent (Old Norse: Miðgarðsormr), is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki's three children by Angrboða — the wolf Fenrir, Hel, and Jörmungandr — and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard.[2] The serpent grew so large that it was able to surround the earth and grasp its own tail.[2] As a result, it received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. When it releases its tail, Ragnarök will begin.

Bri & Force are both right.

"Midgard" is the place "s" is the possessive "ormr" is a snake, thus Midgardsormr is one name of the classic Norse Mythological beast. It pronounces VERY awkwardly in English, but much less so in Scandanavian languages where it originates.

Additionally, the fact that FFVII pulls a lot of its place names from that same Norse Mythology (Midgar=Midgard, Nibelheim=Niflheim) means that it's natural to've made the mistake to assum that this was meant to be related to the in-game location, rather than the direct mythological reference.

The pronunciation as well as the fact that they both reference Norse mythology are reasons why I enjoy the mis-translation version, as it makes the entity game-specific to FFVII in a fun and flavorful way (but there's a whole thread about that)

this is why i'm waiting for them to finish and move on from ffxv before buying it

also because i have few monies and don't want to be throwing them at a game and a season pass and possibly more later down the line

you're already splitting ffvii, square, don't fuck me

I think If they went with Midgarsormr I'd want it to be a Weapon tier boss, or better, one of those things you can't put down permanently, just drive away.

They forgot the most important part: where it started development in 1987 as FFVI-Versus

Hoping they keep this semi-realistic style. I like the scale especially.

old news i know but i just found out about it a week ago
(SPOILER) i'm really pissed tf off at my feed. no matter how many different things i search up in google refuses me to give me what i want in my feed. everything is political or something to do with sports, things i DON'T care about. i haven't gotten any news of anything i want for 2 months now.
but cloud has a new design? tbh i'm so happy because i resaw the trailer and cloud looked rather gaunt facially and body wise. cloud's body is similar to zack's imo and his body in the trailer was too bishounen-y.
