I know it's been discussed before, but why does the tile has "Welcome to" in front of it? I understand that on the box art and title screen they added that wecome part in front of the game title, but the game itself is title Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Proof of that is as follow.

Internal name of the cart:
Animal Crossing: Wild World

Well, we follow boxart. And please note: many of those gaming sites include "Oide yo" in the japanese title. I wonder whether they know what that means.

I've been curious about that myself. I understand they added the welcome part to the box art but that's not actually part of the game title itself. Shouldn't the game title have precedence over any added text on the box art?
