NintendoDpad reports: "Just when you think Nintendo is going to make a full fledged franchise reboot, they change something.Piston Honda has had his name changed and we will now be calling him Piston Hondo. Yes thats right, Hondo."
stupid, yet E. Honda is fine
E Honda would pimp slap Piston Honda. seriously though this is very weird for them to change a name. Croissants fly out of Glass Joe's head and thats fine. They can insult France but lets not piss off Honda Motors.
LOL no one cares about the French LOL. Is Honda Motors actually going to take legal action or is Nintendo just playing it safe and Honda isn't actually doing anything?
No one fears the red-tied legal boogieman more than Nintendo. If Honda comes knocking on Capcom's door, Capcom will open a can o' Phoenix Wright on their ass.
"Just when you think Nintendo is going to make a full fledged franchise reboot" You pretty much lost there since mike tyson isn't in there either XD " How can Capcom’s Street Fighter use the name Honda but not Nintendo?" But isn't honda just a japanese name?
Well Tyson wasn't in the original anyway. The NES version of this was alittle bit of both arcade games. Mike Tyson wasnt the original end boss though, Super macho man was. That copy of the game were given out to Nintendo famicon tournament winners. Then came Tyson, then Mr. Dream
BTW anyone know Japanese? What does it say on his headband?
..."If you can read this, you know Japanese". Seriously. No, just kidding.
I'm really looking forward to this game, but was the name change necessary? "Your next challenger is piston Hondooooo!!!". Damn I gave it the benefit of the doubt by saying it out loud in my head, but "Honda" still sounds better (-_-);;.
does sound stupid to do such a thing
What's wrong with a little cross promotion? Why not Don "Prius" Flamenco? Yes, that was a gay joke...
Probably Legal issues.
Guess his V-Tec ain't kickin' in yo'
... now you want the whole world to suffer too?
