comment Why 'j', 'v', 'w' pronounce differently in German?
Welcome to German Language SE. Unfortunately, I fail to understand what you are asking. Do you fail to distinguish these characters when listening to spoken language? Do you want to know how you can learn how to pronounce them? Or, if your question is actually about the history of their pronunciation: Why are you asking about these letters in particular? After all, orthographies tend to be phonemic or at least start like that and those letters are, e.g., also associated with a different pronunciation in English.

comment What does “Zukunst” in “Zurück in die Zukunst” mean?
@optim1st: Why are you addressing me with that comment? But as far as I can tell, word game is not used in English in the sense of wordplay. I attribute this to a certain distiniction between game and play that exists in English. In fact word game is used to describe games that centre around words like Scrabble.

comment Translation of “So treten vor allem…”
Can you give some more context for the sentence that is giving you trouble? As it stands, the sentence may mean several things depending on the context and you may have shortened it too much.

comment What does “Zukunst” in “Zurück in die Zukunst” mean?
I wonder whether they weren’t aware of the possibility to underline the wordplay (and the context, as blackletter fonts are from a different time) by using a long s or whether they thought their audience would not understand or appreciate it.
