Policenauts finally playable in English… sort of

Any Kojima diehards can die happy now: a patch for Policenauts to be playable in English is now available.

Get the patch from here.

We know you’re exci… what do you mean you haven’t heard of it? Fine, we’ll explain it to you.

This is the one game Hideo Kojima was involved in that never made it West, simply put. Policenauts was a sci-fi action game for the PlayStation 1, 3DO and the Sega Saturn, released over 13 years ago in Japan. A PC release happened earlier in 1994.

An English port was promised, but never materialized.

Mind you, Kojima did say at GamesCom last week he was working on several projects. Could a Policenauts remake for the West be in the making?

If you’re still confused about everything, read the Wiki.

Thanks, Kotaku.
