For those individuals who think sailors don't live up to their reputation enough, "WTF" is about as common in their vocabulary as "the". Our less profane readers, however, will find that WTF is finally about as easy to pronounce as "Golly shucks, Grandma! Can I have another piece of apple pie? I love them ever so much!" The mini-game centric title Baito Hell 2000, a game that had originally gotten some flak for looking like a knock-off of WarioWare but evolved into something far more demented, will get a name change when it hits the US this year. Now called Work Time Fun, IGN's preview reveals that the game will feature, in addition to the core set of mini-games, a collection of "tools" (ramen timer, anyone?), more than 40 additional unlockable mini-games, and ad-hoc multiplayer.
The challenge we forsee will be in how the game will be localized to make it palatable to non-Japanese gamers. Then again, it's not like we really care so long as we have a blast, right?

I don't really care too much about the name...i'm just glad that it is comming to the US. This game looks twisted. (get it...WarioWare Twisted...anyone...)

I'm A Sucker For WarioWare/Minigame Types.. I Remember When GameSpot Had A Little Feature For Baito Hell 2k Way Back When..
Anyways, I Think 'WTF' Will Be Good For American Audiences, I Mean, Who Would Want To Buy 'Short-Term Occupation 2000'? 'Work Time Fun' Seems To Suit The American Audience, Also Not To Mention That Onliners Will Think Of The Other 'WTF' Term, Which Really Describes This Game..
Now The Big Question Is: What's Better? WTF Or HOT PXL?

Ironic that there's no public outcry here as in the case of the Nintendo Wii.
