Wait, What Australia?

Ok, this is like the tiniest bit of news, but honestly it’s incredible in a stupid way.

So, Nintendo is releasing a Wii side-scroller, Wario Land: Shake It!, which, for all intents and purposes, looks awesome. The Wario Land series has always been fun and challenging, featuring innovative level design and a slick art style. This entry into the series looks to be no different. Now, while in America the game’s name is a bold demand punctuated by an explosive exclamation point, for no reason at all, the Australian name of the game will be Wario Land: The Shake Dimension. This kind of sounds like a bad advertising campaign for Wendy’s. So what’s with that, Australia? What the hell is with that?
