Destructoid is reporting that Archime DS will be released in the U.S.A this May under the new name of L.O.L. But is it a new name at all?
No! It’s not. What’s mildly amusing about this name change is that Kenichi Nishi’s original working title for Archime DS was L.O.L – standing for Laugh Out Loud. The name was changed, however, to avoid confusion with L.O.L: Lack Of Love, also by Nishi.
It’s quite ironic that Archime should return to its working title for US release and reminds of when DS launch game Feel The Magic was changed back to Project Rub for the UK.
Will the upcoming UK release of Archime also be renamed L.O.L? I’m not sure yet but it would make a lot of sense – the name gives you a much greater understanding of what to expect than the non-sensical ‘Archime’ ever did.
