Topic: Why isnt Sakurai Samurai on the AU/EUR eShop??

I'm not talking about it's gameplay (the fact that it's gameplay is simple means nothing), but in the name, because that's what's changing. Of course, at this point we have no idea why the name is changing ("legal issues" is just a guess at this point), but it's the only legitimate reason I can think of at this time.

Sakura Samurai makes more sense than Hana Samurai within the context of the game (Sakura being the Japanese term for a cherry blossom, and the role of the titular "Sakura Samurai" is to rescue princess Cherry Blossom), so I doubt they changed the name just for the heck of it.

The namechange doesn't surprise me. In fact, less Nintendo eShop games haven't gotten a name change between America and PAL (well, if you count this one) - just look at Ketzal's Corridors/Speedthru: Potzol's Puzzle and Pushmo/Pullblox

I still can't see the logic behind any of these changes.

Back on topic though, it's great that we're getting this game! I for one can't wait, since you NA-ers have hyped it so much

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)


dunno, dose not bother me though cause I don't think I am going to get the game
