The Ratchet we know is on the left. The picture on the right is Ratchet as he appears in the Japanese version of Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time.


Sony altered Ratchet’s design in Japan by giving him ridiculously huge eyebrows. Originally, this quirk was restricted to cover art, but starting with Ratchet & Clank Future the in-game graphics were altered too.


Here’s the Japanese trailer for Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time


and the US Trailer, with regular eyebrows.


Ratchet & Clank Future 2 is also priced to sell in Japan with a suggested retail price of 5,980 yen ($66). That doesn’t sound like a discount to us, but in comparison to other PS3 games Ratchet & Clank Future 2 is a bargain. Final Fantasy XIII retails for 9,240 yen ($103), 3D Dot Heroes is 7,140 yen ($80), and Call of Duty 2: Modern Warfare 2 costs for 7,940 yen ($88).


Seems like Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is aggressively pricing all of their Western developed PlayStation 3 games since Uncharted 2 and Infamous, which is still unreleased there, are also 5,980 yen ($66).
