Die Hard Arcade/Dynamite Deka/Dynamite Cop
#1
This is something I've been sitting on for a while. I don't even really know what franchise these games belong to anymore.

So... There once was a game called Dynamite Deka, also known as Dynamite Detective. When the game was ported to US it was published by Fox, who then branded it as a Die Hard spinoff called Die Hard Arcade. Later the game had a sequel called Dynamite Deka 2 in Japan. However, this time it was not licensed as a Die Hard adaptation and got released as Dynamite Cop elsewhere.

In Dynamite Deka the main characters were named Bruno Delinger and Cindy Holiday but when it got published over seas as Die Hard Arcade the characters had their names changed to John McClane and Chris Tompsen. No other changes were made and the actors from the film did not reprise their roles through voice over. However, in Dynamite Deka 2 (aka Dynamite Cop) the main character is again named Bruno Delinger. Bruno also appears in Project X Zone worldwide with this name.
