US/Euro naming convention question.

Riddle me this, Batman...

Posting in another thread I remembered that in the UK all the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle" based stuff had to change Ninja to Hero. Some sort of cultural censorship. OK, I get that - I know in China you can't show skeletons or anything like that. Censorship happens...

But around the same time TMNT was popular, there was a great gaming series on the C64 that got popular and I know was popular in Britain... LAST NINJA.

... wtf?

I'm not a fan of censorship but that's not the point here. I'm asking about consistency - how did Last Ninja get away with Ninja in the title but TMNT had to become TMHT?
