if it says SD-Snatcher then it's MSX because only on MSX the game has been released.

Today's Volkskrant issue (big national newspaper) has an article on the back about the Retro Game Dag in Maarssen. In the third column it mentions... Zanac and SD Snatcher.

Damn, you beat me! I saw it when I left work and was just about to post it Smile

Well, you can still beat Grauw to sending in a scan of the damn thing Wink Also, I'm still looking for a scan of the May edition of Edge in which Hideo Kojima mentions MSX

IIRC SD-Snatcher has been released on PC-88/PC-98 as well. But I agree, the MSX version was the dominant one (as it should have been Smile).

You're confused with Snatcher (which is released on numerous platforms). SD Snatcher is a MSX only game.

Yes, I just did some research on the web. I found this:
[感想]
 全編に渡ってクオリティの高い画像とシナリオが展開するのだが、惜しむべきはシナリオが未完であること。
 物語の結末は後に登場するMSXのSDスナッチャーやPCEngine版のスナッチャーを待たなければならなかった。
Its origin is http://clifford.ojiji.net/games/collection/pc88.html. If anyone would be able to translate it, I'd be happy Smile
I think this deals with MSX, SD Snatcher and PC-Engine, so we can verify it Wink

[edit]Damnit, it's translated into unicode codes! Snout, how can we solve this?[/edit]

[edit2]K, fixed it with a picture of it Smile[/edit2]

[edit3, several days later]According to snout, the system can handle Japanese fonts again Smile, so I put back the original text.[/edit3]

Well our scanner is not connected right now so... Maybe tonight.

About the Japanese: that's what happens when you're not 1337 enough to use UTF-8 for your web site.
