NIS America has to rename Badman

"Conflict of interest with existing IP."

Nippon Ichi America has said it will rename its quirky PSP title "Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do to Deserve This?" immediately due to a "conflict of interest with an existing IP".

This applies to the original game, released last year (check out our review), and the sequel, which has been delayed to 4th May in the US to implement the change.

The game has also been pulled from the US PlayStation Store until it can be re-branded. The new name is "What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!?"

There's no word on what the IP was that threw up the conflict, but everyone assumes Batman. We've contacted Tecmo Koei, which distributed Badman in Europe, to find out whether the news is any different in these parts.
