Game Freak changes their name to something closer to 'Game Maniac' in China

They're a maniac!

Here's an interesting tidbit about Game Freak's future operations in China. The company has filed for a new trademark for a name change in China, and the new name still retains the spirit of the original meaning.

Previously in China, Game Freak's name had the 'freak' portion spelled phonetically. Now the name has been changed to something that makes more sense in Chinese. The new name roughly equates to Game Maniac.
