Tale Spin should probably be TaleSpin

You can also consider front boxart as "Tale Spin" (this is always an option when an apparently one-word has multiple capitalization, check titlescreen for TG16 and specially the ones for GEN/MD and GG).


When in doubt, other sources can be valid references as long as they can be considered as official as the boxart front itself.

If removing space, I think that it would be more correct using "Talespin", because of the pun with "tailspin". I think that capital "S" could not be such, but artwork effect to suggest the waving effect associated with "spin".

Keeping the space is supported enough, though.

I've changed TG16 title according to boxart:

NES and GB boxarts *can* be considered "TaleSpin" as suggested, however note the NES back boxart images here: "Tale Spin" is used on text.

Given the TG16 boxart and the NES back cover text, I prefer to keep "Tale Spin" for all.

But does the text on the back of the box matter? Several of the Megaman games use "Mega Man" on the back of the box, but the decision was to keep it "Megaman" anyway.
