Pre-E3 Nuclear Throne Trailer


Trashtalk is the language spoken by the mutants in Nuclear Throne.

Trashtalk is being developed by Joonas Turner, who also does the voice acting in the game for all of the characters except for Yung Venuz (Doseone ), Rogue (Danielle McRaven), Frog (Jukio Kallio), Rebel, and the Female I.D.P.D. (Isa And aka Chisaleya). Joonas also mentioned in a livestream that he will release more information and language details in the future.

Paul Veer confirmed that Trashtalk has no written variant. JW revealed that Bandits speak a simplified dialect of Trashtalk. 

In the PAX East Trailer for Nuclear Throne the narration is done in Trashtalk, which is subtitled. Using this, some phrases can be translated, as shown at the bottom of the table below.

Included in the Nuclear Throne Indiebox was a guide to Trashtalk, created by Joonas. It lists several phrases and sounds used in Trashtalk, with their rough English equivalent, all of which are listed below.
