GTA Online Bug Changing Characters' Race And Gender In Japan

GTA Online Bug Changing Characters' Race and Gender in Japan

Today, Rockstar released the Beach Bum update in Japan for Grand Theft Auto V. It's made players' characters appear... different.

On 2ch, Japan's largest forum, and Twitter, GTA V owners showed how the update was changing their GTA Online characters' looks.

White characters are turning black, young characters are turning old, and female characters and turning male (and vice versa). There are many players complaining online in Japan, but it's still somewhat hard to tell how widespread this glitch is, and it looks to be affecting both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 versions.

Here are some before/after update images:

Sure Rockstar will get this ironed out. In the meantime, enjoy the buggy faces.

    This has been happening to people since day one.

    more games need this option

    What I find more amusing is that it's usually Japanese (versions of) games that have cross-dressers or transexuals: in Animal Crossing, Sahara and Gracie are actually guys in drag, yet they were deliberately changed to females in the western versions

    Some of the character skins actually look better.
