European Wii owners will be hard-pressed to locate a copy of Elebits
when it launches in PAL land this Spring, mostly due to the fact that it'll be called Eledees.
As in, "LEDs" or possibly "Eledees
, can I buy you a drink?"
A quick and shamefully shallow internet search reveals
that the word "bit" could
be considered derogatory British slang, hence prompting Konami to drop it from the game's title. Right below "biscuit arsed", it reads:Bit: Noun. A woman. Abb. of 'bit of fluff' or 'bit of skirt', generally a person viewed sexually. Derog.
Well, thank goodness they caught that one. Countless many people would have been left disappointed after learning that Elebits
doesn't involve you lifting up skirts with a gravity beam. Expect that
game from some other Japanese developer
sometime in the future.
