Behind the scenesEdit
While Grace's role has changed little from the original, her appearance has been simplified and updated doing away with the skirt, instead wearing jeans. Some of her lines have been changed to reflect new puzzles, and changes to the daily events. She also appears in changed or added cutscenes replacing certain material from the first game. This article gives a summary of her actions on each day, and how she compares to the original.
Some of her backstory was removed or truncated. Missing is much about her parents, and Mark Kobiyashi, and it's implied she was born and raised in the United States her entire life. She has been given a few new scripted lines, and some of the classic lines were modified.
This material might have been removed, to fit with her characterization of protecting her private life due to the fact that Gabriel is always flurting with her, and she may not be too open to exposing her details, family life or 'love life' with Gabriel who is just shy of committing sexual harassment with an underling. Another indication that she's not open to discussing her private life is that she won't give her age when asked.
