Hmmm...didn't it originate in the arcades? And it had a box?
I believe part of that is true, however, I just think it got mixed up somewhere while being passed around. Another case of title snafu's is Continental Circus; there was a translation error from Japanese to English and they ended up somehow with Circus, rather than Circuit. Of course a racing game called Continental Circuit makes far more sense, and the word Circus in that game title makes zero sense.
