Tembo The Badass Elephant Dumb Name For Great Looking Game

Why would SEGA and Game Freak go with a name with "Badass" in it. Older readers might not care, older readers with kids might. Tembo The Badass Elephant looks fun. It looks easy to pick up to play with cartoony elements and replay value on mastering a course. You play a commando elephant that looks like he's watched only the good Rambo movies, Tembo. He's going to rampage through 17 levels of action in Shell-City. It's a classic 2D side-scrolling adventure with the wit and charm of SEGA's older games. It features a comic book art style and multiple moves to beat up the forces of PHANTOM. Coming out this Summer on PS4, Xbox One and PC

Now why...oh why put badass in the title? Some parents are just going to say no to getting the game because of the title alone. Doesn't matter how fun it looks. Kick-Ass 1 and 2 were great films, but were Rated R. It's as crazy as the next Batman game getting an MA rating, that's stopping a lot of Moms, Dads and present giving relatives from getting it into the arms of children in the near future.

With SEGA doing so poorly as of late, why not just have a name that no one could object to? SEGA of America you dropped your nuts, your peanuts. I assume the game will be renamed by this Summer. Still... I want to play it right away.
