Trivia

Japanese release

In Japan the game was released only on Playstation by Bandai, as Spin Tail. Gex was renamed to Reno and the setting was changed unrelated to the first game. It also featured a very different, peculiar box-art compared to the western releases. Unlike the previous title, this got a full Japanese voiceover by anime voice actor Mitsuo Senda. This is the last game in the Gex series that got released in Japan.

References

As can be expected from a game with this premise, it contains numerous parodies on movies and series like Friday the 13th, Star Wars, Flinstones, James Bond, Mission Impossible and No Weddings and a Funeral.

Voice actor change

In the North American releases Gex is voiced by HBO comedian Dana Gould, while the European releases feature the voice of British comedian Leslie Phillips.
