Beyblade: Metal Fusion - Battle Fortress blah blah blah coming to Wii

Why is it that Japanese video games based on CCG's and the like can't simply come up with a really good name that doesn't involve both a hyphen and a colon? I mean really, it's not that hard to use say roman numerals or some other simple identifier for new versions of a game.

This time it's Beyblade getting the "5 word, 2 punction mark" name treatment. I recognize that Beyblade: Metal Fusion is the name of the show, but the game doesn't need another punction mark and 2 more words in the title either. Nevertheless, we now have Beyblade: Metal Fusion - Battle Fortress is the new game. Fans of the series will be excited for a limited edition that includes a 1 hour episode and art exclusive to the disc.
