Character design changes in game Localisation
Three fingers to four
Games historically connected to the Yakuza
‘Mutant claw’ - ratchet and clank devs
Burakumin- Oddworld devs
Linked with ‘dumbing down’ of game mechanics
Voice altered too
Linked with marketing strategy
No changes actually made to Crash’s in-game design
Reversal of a trend seen in Western Localisation of Japanese titles
Crash’s place in Playstaton history- a flagship game
Did it work?
Crash sold well in Japan
Remake considered viable for release in Japan.
