Many JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure fans have been curiously awaiting the release of the PlayStation 3 fighting game JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle in the West. One of the main reasons for that anticipation is the curiosity surrounding the potential name changes the game may require for release.

As one can imagine the name changes have come to light with the game’s release earlier today and while Bandai Namco clearly tried to maintain the same message as the original names, there are some instances that are just plain baffling. Obviously some changes had to be made due to copyright issues, however it remains a mystery why some names that seemingly have no infringing content have been altered.

    BoyManMan and Baby Head are two of my favorite small changes. Obviously, the best one is Filthy Acts…

  • Hectotane

    ‘Filthy Acts At A Reasonable Price’ should be called “Filthy Acts For A Donation.” But yeah; FAAARP. 😛

  • Sticky Fingers to Zipper man is stupidly sad but the worst change is Polnareff to Eiffel…Seriously? they didn’t ever need to change it. Did we need more french to show he’s french? geez

    • Luke Halliday

      Yes it is really silly and quite frankly baffling alteration.
