In the Back to the Past Edition of the game there's some concept art which show's the main character Rift's Future Self being playable wearing some armour with a helmet and a blue visor on the helmet. He was also supposed to use guns but when enemies were shot they had blue blood. There was some censorship issues over this Idea. The ESRB even threatened to rate the game T if they put blood in the game so they didn't put Future Rift or his Gun's into the game.
