En la versión del juego Metal Gear para el mercado no japonés, los textos del mismo fueron recortados de 155 de a 86 nada memos. Por lo tanto, algunos fragmentos de la historia no se entendían bien (debido a una mala traducción) o no tenían el sentido que Hideo Kojima y sus ayudantes quisieron darle de cara al jugador.
El guión de la versión original fue traducido hace años por Takamichi Suzukawa y revisado por Jon Taylor y posteriormente su trabajo se complementó con un parche para el juego haciendo uso de esta nueva traducción por Nekura_Hoka. La última versión conocida de este parche es la 1.9 y en esta entrada publico ambas cosas: por un lado el parche y por el otro la transcripción completa de la comentada traducción por si lo consideráis de interés. No quiero guardarme nada en mi disco duro que pudiera serle de utilidad a algún fan de la saga.

Introduction ----------------- This is the script used for version 1.9 of the Metal Gear Remix/Redux project. It is essentially the same as the original project script, but has a couple of corrections as outlined by the readme for the translation patch and slightly different formatting here and there to accommodate the new font tiles. An asterisk is used to indicate a page transition, either by user prompt or via timed transition indicated by the game code. Messages are separated by a simple double space. Enjoy! 001.
