Did someone change the faces of some of the characters?

#1 Edited by indus (82 posts) -

So I was linked to Amazon's sale on Deadly Premonition and saw that Francis York Morgan had a new face from some of the screenshots for the game. I thought I was going crazy until another screenshot which had a pretty man version of George as well alongside the new York. The only thing i'd like to know is why the face(s) were changed and what face goes into Deadly Premonition 2?

Special Agent Francis York Morgan?

Here's the link to the said page.

Not Deadly Premonitin 2, but I think an early version of Francis York Morgan.

Whew, yeah Amazon PR screwing up makes more sense than the changing of what are now iconic characters.

I'm really glad they changed the look. I look at that screenshot and my head wants to explode. he looks like an anime character.

They changed all the characters because in their initial screenings everyone said it was too much like Twin Peaks.

@Mahonay: Yeah, the actual character designs are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better. I mean that's fine...functional...but the real Francis York Morgan is awesome.

Sounds like they changed George to avoid legal action because they literally stole Harry Truman in that early design.
