Katrina and Mika don't show up at the end of the PCE version, so we don't really need to worry about it.

Thanks again for doing these transcriptions, guys. :) It's a big help.

Hello everybody,
I don't get this line in mine game at the end. I think you can get it, if you offend Katrina too much at her home and you're thrown out. Can somebody confirm that?


No, you have to visit Katrina more than once in Act 1 and always ask her a little about herself. In your first meeting she won't tell anything about herself, but the more you visit her, the more she's willing to tell you.

At some points she mentions that she likes to visit Alton Plaza, because she doesn't know what else to do in her free time since her father died. (As far as I remember she quit her model job shortly after that, at least for a little while.)

After that she'll mention Alton Plaza in the ending. (But as Marc already mentioned, just in the Sega CD version.)

Ah yeah, that's right. I always get mixed up with the PC Engine and Sega CD's ending. Dammit.

Spoiler:
If you really think about it, the PC Engine versions' ending (as well as SD Snatcher's ending) are much closer to the true original vision of it than the Sega CD versions' ending. If you have a copy of Snatcher Radio Play, you can find early storyboard sketches for the PC-88 versions' ending. In those sketches, they indicate that Randam was originally supposed to live (and in SD Snatcher, he does. SD Snatcher contains an earlier version of that ending).

This has been discussed before- SD Snatcher's plot, being very different from the original's, doesn't have Queens Hospital getting blown up, so it makes sense he'd live in that game's ending. Although Kojima may have wanted Random to be alive at the end, I think it would have been very lame and overly sappy if he did.

Something tells me they might bring Random back for Project S. Arrghh. This is what I'm not looking forward to. Again, in the original ending for Snatcher (the Japanese versions), there's none of this "See you at the new and expanded JUNKER when you get back!" It was added for the Sega CD version. So it wasn't like there was a door intentionally left open for a sequel in the original game.

Isn't Project S supposed to be a prequel to the original game?

Well not actually. The web-radio drama will be preguel but Project isn't just only this web-radio drama, it's just the beginning of Project S.
At least so i have understood... :)

They've said it's a "series of works", so I assume they won't all take place in the past.

I wouldn't be surprised if Randam's in Snatchers (the radio drama). It seemed like he had been a bounty hunter for a while. Maybe I'm forgetting a detail about his past?

Yeah, I expect him to be in Snatchers (albeit voiced by somebody else now), since it appears Gibson knew him, but I was talking about games that take place in the future, after his apparent death.

I always thought Randam knew Jean Jack Gibson? I'm really sure that Randam went on a limb to mention he knew Jean Jack pretty well before his inevitable death (I think the comment went something along the lines of "you're nowhere near the experience and precision of Jean Jack, now he was a true Junker..." whilst talking to Gillian, something like that anyways). All of the characters I'm expecting in the radio drama are:

Napoleon (Jean Jack's contact)
Randam (Jean Jack's Bounty Hunter) with a different voice actor.
Katrina (obviously)
Benson (hopefully with foreshadowing, such as a little change in his personality and mannerisms, for example)
Harry
Mika
Little John (Jean Jack's buddy throughout)
Lisa and Freddie Nielsen (possibly at the end of the radio drama, would be cool if they tell you how the scene developed)

So yeah, I can only see Gillian, Elijah, Petrovich and Metal Gear being left out of this; since all the rest of the characters knew Jean Jack at least pretty well.

A lot of recurring characters.

Gibson's disk also says "Watch out for a bounty hunter named Random Hajile."

^That's right. Was that implemented just into the Sega CD version, or is it present in the PC Engine version.

It's in the PCE version as well. (Even I noticed that without any japanese language abilitys.:p)

About your characters list, Isabella might appear as well, while Gibson's investigating in Outer Heaven. At least she'd finally be voiced.

^ Ha! Show off! :P

About Isabella: I was going to put that on the list, it was just when I remembered her saying 'who's that' when you do show a photo of Jean Jack to her whilst investigating Outer Heaven.

Either A: she is protecting Jean Jack, not knowing he is already dead.
Or B: she never met him.

So it's 50/50. Who knows? There may have even been a love interest between the two (which might explain why she is covering for him).

Could be, I never trusted anyone at Outer Heaven anyway.

But she doesn't even have to talk to Gibson. Maybe Gibson's eavesdropping on her while he's investigating in Outer Heaven. Or you can hear her say something after Gibson spat blood because of his ulcer.

Maybe she just saw him in the crowd but never talked to him.

The radio drama prequel does open up the possibilty for some great scenarios, but I still am not sure about a sequel.

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if all of the residents of Outer Heaven had become Snatchers, even Napoleon and Isabella...

Somehow, I highly doubt Napoleon is a Snatcher.

If you watch the part in Act 3 where they talk about the Snatch Process, Metal clearly stated that Snatchers cannot snatch anyone who is short, a child, tall, fat, or even elderly. And If I'm right, isn't Napoleon supposed to be short and elderly?

It would also be odd for a Snatcher to knowingly help a JUNKER so much.

True, the height matter will change my theory. He isn't that old though, for it to be the 'too old' reason really. I'd guess somewhere in his late 40s. So he can't be a Snatcher, since he is far too short.

Well, he could have been used to gather information about the latest news and goings on at Junker HQ, if he was (got to remember the Snatchers are incredibly intelligent, they ain't going around just killing things willy nilly), but it's doubtful now that I have been reminded that they can't turn smaller people into Snatchers.

And since they had the Chief, it is even less likely. Unless you argue about time frames... but anyway, all those thing would certainly be cheap if done.

Ok everybody,

Here it is. The complete transcription of all voices of the Sega CD Snatcher. Good luck with the translation project. If I could help you with anything more, just give me a call.
