This game is called "Ashura" in Japan?

How the **** do you translate "Rambo: First Blood Part II" to "Ashura"?

The original Master System game was given a Rambo makeover.

Given that most companies can't afford or don't want to get back the old licenses for the virtual console, i doubt this will be called Rambo if it ever does come out in the U.S.

Sega still owns the Rambo license. They have just announced a new Rambo Lightgun shooter.

No, I don't mean legally or whatever, I mean how would you even think of the name "Ashura" when the game is "Rambo: First Blood Part II"?

It's most likely the other way around: Sega creates an action game for the japanese market named Ashura. When they released the game in the USA, they changed the name and some characters to improve sales.
Sega also turned their beat'em up Dynamite Deka into Die Hard Arcade for the american release.
