    I have also gone through the whole thread, some wonderful random info. Certainly feel a little more schooled.

    The only little fact that springs to mind is SNK changed the name of KOF 98 to KOF: Dream Match 99 when it was ported to Dreamcast. Have no idea why they did this as they also ported KOF 99 to Dreamcast.

    yes that was the title for 99, but they changed 98 to dream match 99 for some reason.

    Probably because it was released in 1999 and noone wanted to play a game from last year? Just a wild guess, but oh well.

    Agreed. Yet, oddly enough, KOF: Maximum Impact 2 was renamed to "King of Fighters 2006" when it was released in the states. It's interesting that they dropped the year in one instance, yet added it in another. Perhaps it's simply publisher preference/taste at the time of release in addition to how they think the market will react to the yearly aspect of the title.

    That makes sense I guess, just one of those marketing ploys.

    I bet they do blind name tests and marketing research before releasing games. Like they do with TV/Films and test audiences. You can imagine it, some dweeb with a clipboard asking spotty teens about their logo and name choices.
