    Due for release in Spring 2007, Konami's first title for Wii has now been renamed to Eledees.

    Why the hell did they change the name? Though I'm not getting it, I'd see the picture of one of the lil creature's and be like 'Oh there's an Elebit :D' but Eledee? It's like the name Wii, it'll take me a month to realise how it's actually pronounced.

    Well imo 'dees' does sound better than 'bits', more elegant? :p

    It'll be especially confusing since it's already out in Japan and North America under the Elebits name.

    :lol: I've never met anyone who calls it that!

    And Konami should have stuck with the name Elebits. We're all used to that title, and there's no good reason to change it (unless there's some trademark issues we're not aware of?).

    I think this sums it all up.
    If it's not broke why fix it?

    The game has been out here for a few weeks? I own Elebits, so they can't change the name.

    I'd imagine so, It's still the same game unless theres some changes we havent been told about... Why change it though? Although... i don't really care what it's called, i'll still buy it.

    It's the same Game. It will still be called Elebits in North America.

    I like the name change.
    Although I live in North America.
    It gives Europe some exclusivity to the game.
    Plus Eledee is funny.
    LED'S!
