Games with better titles in other regions

I guess Turok 2 aka Violence Killer Turok New Generation is an obvious one

I've always thought that Biohazard sounded way cooler than Resident Evil.

It‘s silly but Yoshi’s Cookie is Yoshi No Cookie in Japanese.

That change makes me imagine a game where Yoshi discovers they're diabetic and has to go around eating vegetables and other healthy stuff while grabbing the occasional insulin power up.

pretty much every dragon quest?

Rocky Rodent ain't it:

@“gsk”#p60897 “Nitropunks Might Heads”?? They better not!!

I don‘t know if it’s better, but the first thing that came to mind for me was the earth shattering moment I discovered this ‘Contra’ game that everyone on the internet loves is actually the very same game as ‘Probotector’, a game I had played many times at my friend Ricky's house.

Jet Set Radio is what that game always should have been called.

But NO, Sega of America decided to call it Jet Grind Radio. I hate that that's the official American title.

@“Nemoide”#p61035 the US title is balanced by the Japanese reverse-import version being titled De La Jet Set Radio

@“hellomrkearns”#p61047 I wonder who did this illustration, because it is extremely charming. It'd make for a great poster.

@“TheFragranceOfDarkCoffee”#p61073 It's likely Ken Sugimori! He worked on this game and this looks a heck of a lot like his style, especially that woman

@“Funbil”#p61074 Oh dope! I was really thinking that woman gave me some Pokemon vibes, so this makes sense.

I like it when another region adds the name of someone you've never heard of to the title.
