Sin and Punishment is a Japan-only Nintendo 64 game. Due to having English voice acting and an official English title, however, it was very popular in the Western world, despite having never been released there until the advent of Virtual Console, where it did well enough to get a sequel.

Unused Staff Credits

What appears to be an earlier version of the game's staff credits lies at offset 0x768484 in the ROM. Compared to the final text, this version features the following differences:

  • It's actually noted which voice actors voiced which characters, where the final version lists them without their roles; Isa's VA is, however, only shown as ?????.
  • The company Fontworks International Limited is not listed under "Special Thanks".
  • The game is exclusively referred to as Project "GLASS SOLDIER", while the final version says THE ORIGINAL TITLE, GLASS SOLDIER.
  • A version number, Ver 0.32 is shown; it is however unknown what exactly this refers to (only the staff roll text, the game itself, etc.).

Regional Differences

While all versions featured English voice-overs, the different localizations took different approaches. The iQue Chinese version released in 2004 translated all the text to Chinese, including the title menu graphics and the cutscenes. The English Virtual Console release merely translated the menu options and the credits, leaving all the other Japanese text unaltered.
