 Rename Wimbledon II ~ Wimbledon (Europe, Brazil) ?
 
Argument: Naming

Hi!

I was wondering why the game Wimbledon II is named "Wimbledon II ~ Wimbledon (Europe, Brazil)". I can't find any reference to the "Wimbledon" subtitle. The box art contains just Wimbledon II and looking at the hex dump I don't see any references to the subtitle either.

I think it might be better to simply name it "Wimbledon II (Europe, Brazil)".

Thanks,
Hugo

It's not a subtitle, the tilde is there to show that there's more than one name dependent on the region the game was released in, a bit like with Bare Knuckle ~ Streets of Rage (World) etc.

There's a mention of the Brazilian release here:

...and here's a physical boxed copy on eBay that shows there was no "II" on the box or cart in Brazil...

Oh you're right. I didn't see the brazilian release.

Thanks for the clarification!
