Living in North America, Ratchet & Clank has always been the same for me. A great platformer with slight puzzles, wild weaponry and dialogue that is suited for all gamers. It’s a great franchise that despite its many iterations continues to be a cornerstone for the young and old alike. While some may argue that it deserves to finally die off, I disagree and hope they continue to provide a family gaming experience from top to bottom. However, one thing I never knew until just last night is how different Ratchet is to the Japanese than he is to the rest of the world.
You know how they say everyone has a twin somewhere out there? It’s almost as though the Ratchet being released in Japan is the doppelganger of our dear Ratchet from America and Europe. I’m not sure if I’m alone here, but are any of you else aware of this? I’ve included a Japanese trailer below — let us know if you can spot the difference.
Did you see it? If it’s still out of your grasp or you’re just completely terrible at the “Spot the Difference” game, I’ve included a trailer from North America below.
Please tell me that you’ve figured it out by now! Of course you have. Isn’t that a little quirky to you? Let me know what you think about the difference below. I’d love to hear your opinions on it.
