Japanese Artwork of Western Games

I found this comparison between American artwork for videogames and the Japanese conversion. In some cases it's just a change of style, a different focus or a different artist. In others, it's a complete overhaul of the character design to make it more appealing to Japanese gamers.

Take a look at Ratchet and Clank for example. Not only does the Japanese version look like some Anime bastardization of the Lion King, but his eyebrows are freaking huge!
