NIS America PSP Game Title Changes from Badman to Lord
Today European Product and Development Manager Allison Walter at NIS America has announced that PSP title "The Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman" will immediately be referred to as "What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!?" due to an unintentional IP conflict.
To quote: I have a few bits of important news to announce!
The first is, Badman has decided to change his bad image, or at least his name. Let it be known: The Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman series will immediately be referred to as What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!? The original title had a conflict of interest with an existing IP and it was not NIS America's intention to create any conflict.
This new title is intended to better represent the game's whacky retro dungeon world and connect the player's awareness with the overall theme of the game. Phil, give us a drumroll to introduce the new game cover...
Due to the name change the game, Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman!: What did I do to deserve this? will be temporarily unavailable from the PlayStation Store. The game will return as soon as the new name process has been completed.
The second bit of news is that What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!? 2 will be released within the same week as its North American version, 7 May 2010. Waahooo!
About What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!? 2
The goal of the game is clean and simple: As the God of Destruction, you must create a dungeon that is both difficult and powerful enough to fend off the human hero invaders.
The dungeon must have a self-sustaining ecosystem, so players must strategically dig and create a dungeon with a balanced food chain. Periodically, human heroes will invade the dungeon, in order to bring peace and harmony to the world. But, they are your enemies. You must destroy the heroes before they capture the Overlord and take him back to the surface.
The game system may be simple, but this game is loaded with tons of evolving monsters, environments, and heroes for hours of game play. Compared to the original game, part 2 has 2.5 times more heroes, 3.3 times more monsters, and 4 times more stages to beat.
Here's the low down on the game:
RELEASE DATE: 7 May 2010
PLATFORM: PlayStation Portable
PUBLISHER: NIS America
DEVELOPER: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. / ACQUIRE CORP.

Holy trademark infringement Batman!
I'm a bit surprised it didn't happen sooner actually, though it would be ironic if there was another "Badman" it was infringing on instead.
