Regional differences: Reskinned games

Group Description

This group is for games that carry the Regional differences genre and feature a reskinned version of a game in a different region. This same game, different name phenomena is typically caused by licensing issues or a brand simply being more well known in one region compared to another.

Games in this group will typically change the protagonist and by extension change the story to fit the new lead.

Note: This group isn't about small edits which can happen sometimes when a game is brought to a new market due to things like censorship or policies held by the powers that be. Graphical edits of religious iconography, swastika's. scantily clad women, etc... are common edits and as long as they don't alter the story being told in a game, they shouldn't be included.
