I like the original concept best. An old father goes off to save his daughter. I'm tired of games with the character being a young dashing hero, off to save the world. I also looked at the trailer for the original concept version, and it looked fast paced, and pretty damn intense. Looking at the new concept version trailer (girly version), it certainly looked like it was geared towards the masses. Definitely changed the atmosphere of the game by making the main character a young man.

Oh goddamnit, I thought the hermaphrodite was hot.

Next time I'll read the article before watching the video.

I think it's interesting how not only did they change the look of the protagonist for western audiences, but also his relation to the girl. I wonder if that was purely due to the apparent age of the feminine/masculine versions or if that also had to do with social norms.

Well, at least you acknowledge 'em as "typos," not "misspells."

And Noraf, I think it's a social norm, what their audiences prefer -- that is, beautiful people.

I know the reasoning for the different character model was due to social preference, but I was wondering if that was also the reason for changing the relationship of the characters, e.g. western audiences would find the father's search for his daughter more relatable and acceptable than a brother's search for his sister, whereas that might be reversed for eastern audiences. I don't know if that is true, but it was a thought. But it's probably more likely they changed it because the western hero looked so much older.

I think they would be more drawn to the relationship between brother and sister, if that inference can be drawn from other popular media. Secondly, the devs/publisher may have just been too lazy to make Yonah into an infant in order to fit the role of girly-NIER's daughter. More work for them, so they just said, "HEY THEY'RE SIBLINGS!"

I thought the Replicant version looked better, but after playing gestalt, I don't really care about the JP only version because it's amazing. The story, the gameplay and the characters. Graphics aren't amazing, but they're passable, and secondary to gameplay anyway. just myo pinion on this game =D
