Great podcast as usual!

You can do subtitles on Sdatcher, though!
There is a huge interest! Many of us that are listening to the podcast
have played through Snatcher and more recently, Policenauts!!

Doesn't Chris translate Mr. Kojima's twitter? You guys also have a
Ustream account? I know you guys are busy, but would it be possible to
even make a "video" that just contains Sdatcher audio, a black screen
and english text?

I actually listened to the first episode in Japanese and I was really
impressed with the music, voices and sound effects. I'd really be
happy to see any kind of translation take place! Thank you guys for
thinking of us!!

hi, nice episode guys! thanks for looking into the widescreen thing, but my concern still is about the classic main theme composed by TAPPY and re-arranged by H.G.Williams , is going to ever appair again on a new game, integrated into mgs4? update mgo2 tracks? selling it on itunes/cd? is really a pretty important part of MGS and it's fans lives, what are you going to do with it?

4 / Gilmor-The -Great / 2011年09月09日 01:04

Will HD have MGS4 control scheme L1 aim R1 shoot or will it be original... if you have a loose controller ( broken in ) it is very difficult to hold someone up w/out accidentally shooting them!!! by pressing X lightly VS hold L1 ... u get the idea what r the chances u use MGS4 control scheme???

P.S. i think this is the only blog on the net were people don't argue..lol great job everyone!!!

5 / mac293 / 2011年09月09日 02:10

you are the best, mgs is the best game in this world, oh my god, i love snake yeah, forever.

6 / Junker / 2011年09月09日 03:33

Of course we'd love to have SDATCHER in English in some way, please do! There is a great community of fans.

7 / AwesomeBrand / 2011年09月09日 03:34

I've played Snatcher, and might I say it was a pretty awesome story. I'd like to see Sdatcher in some way. Maybe it could be included as part of a PSN/XBLA remake of Snatcher in some way? ;)

8 / BIGBOSS27 / 2011年09月09日 03:39

Great Session guys!!
On Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, is the persistence features going to be on Metal Gear Sold 3 Subsistence such as Snake Vs Monkey, Duel Mode????
Is the Skateboard game going to be on Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance???
:)

9 / JohnnyComeNowly / 2011年09月09日 03:42

YES, please, please localize Sdatcher! I would pay for it on iTunes or even CD!

10 / TheMancho / 2011年09月09日 04:02

For SDatcher (which is a horrible name by the way) I would prefer a digital comic, but if you must just dub it in english and release a download here.

11 / KasteHimself / 2011年09月09日 04:12

Please, please, please... Translate SDATCHER for American fans!! (A SNATCHER remake would be cool btw) :D

12 / Artemio / 2011年09月09日 04:13

It would be great to have a subtitled version, which I think is the realistic approach. of course We'd love to have a CD with it and the tracks, as well as the official Merch from TGS... =)

13 / -PATR10T- / 2011年09月09日 04:52

Don't know much about Snatcher, but I love the music in Metal Gear Online! Would love to see more of any Snatcher stuff in the States.

14 / Mr_Valdemar / 2011年09月09日 04:53

Please translate SDATCHER to english!

15 / Fox-Balls / 2011年09月09日 04:59

I want that mug and that cat **** coffee :D I agree that its up to Kojima an his staff how they present MGS to us. if its good enough for Koji its good enough for me :D

16 / Marcus / 2011年09月09日 05:04

You guys CAN do subtitles for SDATCHER! Put it on YouTube!

17 / Smiley / 2011年09月09日 05:24

I love the idea of reviving a radio drama. I've heard great things about Snatcher even though I never played it. I would love to. You managed to have MG1 and 2 come out and I had a blast playing through those. Please re-release Snatcher and/or Policenauts to the western audience.The radio drama is welcomed also. Here's an idea. Market them in some physical package. Play the game and go through the radio drama as voice files.

18 / Lupo Arrabbiato / 2011年09月09日 06:24

I just don't want it, I demand it...Make an official translation for Sdatcher. Don't make this another Policenauts.

19 / Cameron / 2011年09月09日 06:26

Hey guys, it's great to know that your addressing the aspect ratio issue. Regarding the box art, we're all aware the MGS series is held in high regard when it comes to the box art, especially the art of MGS 1-3. I gotta say though, all the HD collection box art is so lame, with the awful logo's everywhere and the huge HD Collection sign. The Shadow of Colossus HD collection box art is the same but there's a reversable cover of the original art and it looks beautiful. I really think the same should be considered for MGS. It would look so much more beautiful on our shelves.
Keep up the great work guys!

20 / markuza / 2011年09月09日 07:26

yes please a spanish version!!

21 / Fluffy / 2011年09月09日 08:43

Hey there! Long time no write! Regarding the question about interest for Sdatcher, there is. I, for one, own a copy of the Sega CD version, which I'm told was quite scarce when released. It was actually my first Kojima game, so it has LOTS of fond memories for me. The charcters, the setting, music, etc. are all very dear to me. That was the FIRST game with mature themes I ever played and was like a sort of rite of passage for me. About the cast, if you could hire Kris Zimmerman to do the English version, the quality assurance would take care of itself, I think. Perhaps one suggestion would be to follow a little bit in Mr. Kojima's casting method for games? While introducing new actors, he keeps picking actors and actresses from past games of his. Hideyuki Tanaka played Otacon, but he also played Jonatan Ingram in Policenauts, for example. Jamie Seed from Snatcher was played by Kikuko Inoue, who later played The Boss, Rosemary, etc. Why not pick people from the English MGS cast and put them in new roles? It'd be nice to hear Jennifer Hale in a role where she doesn't die, after her track record in Metal Gear Solid? If you could get people from the original English Snatcher cast, it would be AWESOME. Jeff Lupetin is a persona favorite of mine.

It may be a little late to talk about the aspect ratio of the MGS HD Collection, but what about making the screen adjustable? Zooming in or out and moving the HUD around so that things fit would be great. Regarding the cutscenes, I think it'd be best to give options for choosing one among several. Original aspect, super wide, full screen, etc. I doubt you have much time to implement such a thing, but think about it. Picking one over the others is going to invariably leave some people irritated In that other way you could please everyone. Again, I don't know if you have the time and highly doubt it, but give it a bit of thought.

22 / Penrril_ / 2011年09月09日 09:35

snatcher in english please

23 / mobby / 2011年09月09日 09:41

Did I hear that right, you're thinking about bringing the "SDATCHER Radio Drama" to the west?

I'd really appreciate it, no matter how you achieve it. The Snatcher scenario is so cool. It's frightening but you still want to dig in more and more. And I loved the plot twists, Kojima did pull something really cool there, like it even more than Policenauts (plot wise).

Cheers.

24 / Zailens / 2011年09月09日 10:15

DO ET!

25 / makako01 / 2011年09月09日 11:50

26 / Glwanderer / 2011年09月09日 12:19

27 / EDDIE-X / 2011年09月09日 13:10

28 / Ulysses / 2011年09月09日 13:37

It would be great to have Sdatcher localization. Please =), there is a great community of fans. A reedition of Snatcher is welcome too :D

29 / z3r0._R_zuperztar / 2011年09月09日 13:42

Seria algo genial que hicieran una version en ingles del titulo. Sin duda seria la oportunidad perfecta para que aquellos incautos que desconocen este juego lo prueben y los demas lo volvamos a disfrutar.

30 / oldman / 2011年09月09日 14:00

please, we want sdatcher in mexico in english or spanish

31 / Solide18 / 2011年09月09日 16:25

Yeah, im huge fan of Snatcher and Policenauts games so it would be awesome if you could make SDATCHER localized for english language.

32 / 0479 / 2011年09月09日 20:03

Love to see(hear) the English-cast version of Sdatcher!

33 / Liquid Dubz-o-Lot / 2011年09月09日 23:21

Ya doing the itunes for the Dramas would be great.

I was really sad that we didn't get MGS1 or Portable Ops in the HD collection.

35 / Mordecai / 2011年09月09日 23:45

Hey! Newcomer but I have listened to several podcasts recently. I do have a question but I'm not sure if it's been asked/answered/talked about or if this is even where I'm meant to ask... Just wondering if we will see the return of the Demo Theatre in Substance and Subsistence, including the secret threatre in Subsistence?

If this has been talked about feel free to ignore me and I'll discover it eventually!

36 / Rooders / 2011年09月10日 01:50

YOU CANT PUT SUBTITLES ON YOUR EARS NOW CAN YOU!?

yes you should release Sudatcher, there are many ways on CD, mp3, PSN/XBLive, youtube. that not so hard now is it? the hard part would be hiring voice talent.

37 / Lentfilms / 2011年09月10日 02:13

Love the podcast and of course you should do an English dub for SDATCHER. I would not mind paying a buck or two to listen to that. As for casting, you should definitely cast James Parks as Jean Jack Gibson. It would be great to have one of the original voice actors from the Sega CD release.

38 / neokobejunker / 2011年09月10日 02:33

Any kind of translation of sdatcher would be amazing. The american fanbase tho not huge is extremely devoted and passionate to the world of snatcher

39 / MonadoFighter / 2011年09月10日 04:19

hello from russia!
I know that KP planned to release the CD version of radiodrama.. It would be great, if the Sdatcher was accompanied by multilanguage subtitles.

if Jeremy Blaustein and MGS series voicecast join to this translation project..
heh. its a dream

40 / @angelgdl / 2011年09月10日 04:47

Im from MEXICO and i like subtitles in SPANISH we ♥ Snatcher in MEXICO

41 / Shadowed_Fox / 2011年09月10日 08:13

Awesome show guys and gal. it answered alot of my questions and i'm so excited for the Metal Gear Solid HD collection. What a day brightener.

42 / whatyoutalkinaboutwillis? / 2011年09月10日 18:11

Hey guys, last podcast you mentioned possibly having the guy who makes up trailers come on and talk through the process, could this PLEASE still happen?? It would be quite interesting.

Also, obviously since you can't talk about Rising, could you talk about the production on MGS4 and Peace Walker? For example what went into making those games, sound design, art, programming challanges, level design etc as well as stories relating to how things shaped up the way they did. It would just be great to hear this podcast discuss more production related topics once again.

Thankyou for reading these requests and sugestion KP, keep up the good work!

43 / Kyrill / 2011年09月10日 21:11

Hi, Snatcher and Policenauts are my favorite games, along with Metal Gear.

I'd love to see Sdatcher translated into English, the audiobook format seems nice for it, although I think it would be even better with some illustrations, that could make a great iPhone or PSP app.

I also would love to see a re-edition of Policenauts or Snatcher, it would be awesome to have those games on a portable device, or as PSN or Xbox Arcade games.

Keep up the great work at Kojima Productions, and don't forget you have a community of fans for other games than Metal Gear ! ;-)

44 / Gilmor-The-Great / 2011年09月10日 23:06

Will you Please release MGS HD on PSN same day my PS3 is having hard time reading disks again im on my 5th one ARRRRRG!!! also can i copy my PSP PW file to PW HD on day 1???? Love ya mean it !!!

& in previous post i meant SUARE BUTTON... damn vicodin..

45 / tokenflipguy / 2011年09月12日 02:10

It'd be wonderful to have a localized SDatcher somehow.

46 / DeadSoldier / 2011年09月12日 23:57

If Sdatcher ever comes to English-speaking countries, hopefully Jeff Lupetin (the guy who voiced Gillian Seed from the Sega/Mega-CD version) gets to voice Gillian once again.

47 / DeadSoldier / 2011年09月12日 23:59

Oh wait, I forgot that Gillian hasn't been announced yet.

Oh well, I'm still waiting for the American version of Sdatcher.

48 / Gillian Seed / 2011年09月13日 10:21

Mr. Kojima you should revive the Snatcher franchise and what better way to start with a US localization! Please make it happen, for the fans!

49 / Naked_Hound / 2011年09月13日 12:31

Great Podcast:) I laughed soo hard once you revealed the coffee process.
I Completely agree with Saikyo78, please put english subtitles as I am still learning Japanese. Thanks for reading! :)

50 / couwy / 2011年09月13日 14:03

Snatcher is among my favorite games and I'd love to hear/see an English localization of SDATCHER!

51 / silent_snake / 2011年09月14日 05:46

Localized english version would be amazing!

Snatcher's universe and story are phenomenal and can be expanded beyond a radio drama.

52 / J.R. / 2011年09月14日 23:45

Please, Please, Please, PLLEEEAAASSSEEE bring the Vita HD collection to America. I would love an "ultimate collection" that featured MGS (in it's original form), and the HD versions of MGS2, MGS3, and Peace Walker on Vita.

53 / GuardianV / 2011年09月15日 04:05

Make a Digital Graphic Novel version of Sdatcher.

54 / John / 2011年09月15日 08:50

An English version would be amazing.
Paul Eiding should voice Gibson, and Debi Mae West should voice Katrina.

55 / Josh / 2011年09月15日 10:44

Please make an english localization for Sdatcher and also make a Snatcher 2! Please Kojima.

56 / RedSwirl / 2011年09月15日 13:54

I just saw the pictures of the Japanese "Premium Package" for the MGS Collection

You can't tell me after this that western audiences are going to get SOME kind of special edition!

57 / Mr. RHC / 2011年09月15日 18:43

Hi there! Since Snatcher is a great game and a lot of people love it, I'd also love to see it in some way localized! I could imagine a series of short bande dessinnés!

Yours, Mr. Roppongi Hill Coffee

YES, please, please localize Sdatcher! I would pay for it on iTunes or even CD!

59 / Gary McGolden / 2011年09月16日 20:15

We would really appreciate a translation.

60 / Henry / 2011年09月16日 20:57

Please do a localization for Snatcher! There is a definite cult fanbase. And then get Kojima to make a new Snatcher GAME whilst you are at it.

:P

61 / Rollo / 2011年09月17日 06:53

Please Kojima make a Snatcher 2!

62 / Uznare / 2011年09月17日 13:18

I would love to have some sort of localization for Sdatcher. Snatcher is one of my favorite games of all time. And I think it would be really neat to have more content released to an english spekaing audience.

63 / Blade Runner / 2011年09月19日 07:49

Sdatcher in English please.

64 / Geno Anthony / 2011年09月22日 09:11

Snatcher radio drama, or adventure point and click game for the United States :) PLease, localize THANKS AGAIN Kojimasan :)

65 / Mark / 2011年09月22日 17:35

This definitely needs a translation to English. It is clear there is a lot of talent and work being put into this and we haven't seen a Snatcher/Policenauts related release in years.

66 / Thage / 2012年01月12日 06:52

Longtime Snatcher/Policenauts fan, first-time commenter here: I'd love to see a translation of Sdatcher, even if my heart of hearts would prefer to see the Sega CD version of Snatcher put up on the NA PSN. But, long story short, another fan offering support (eager support!) for a localization of Sdatcher!

67 / originalcracker / 2012年02月02日 13:42

It would be interesting and great to be able to listen Sdatcher in English. To this day, I still enjoy listening to the audio tracks of the Sega CD version of Snatcher and listen to it playout as a radio drama.

68 / Vin / 2012年09月12日 15:21

hello,

Replying to an old post so I'm unsure if this will ever be seen, but I'd like to mention that I've experienced Marc's Sdatcher translation and found it extremely absorbing. The level of atmospheric immersion via the script, characters, and music really exceeded my expectations. I'd love to experience a localized version of the story as well. Rock on, Snatcher! certainly one of most underrated universes in gaming, along with Policenauts.
