This is version 1.00 of the Sega Saturn Policenauts English unofficial translation. The following is a list of changes made to the original game.

- All Japanese text is now in English. This includes gameplay text, voice-over dialogue subtitles, the in-game glossary (new to the Saturn version), and bonus videos (also new). The PlayStation translation and glossary on Policenauts.net were used as a base. Additional text new to the Saturn version was translated by two additional translators. The translator of the PlayStation patch edited their work, and then updated the PlayStation translation and glossary text.

- The code that controls subtitles was modified, giving us full control over them and enabling us to polish their presentation. This modification was essential as a cutscene and the bonus videos new to the Saturn version have no subtitles in the original game. This also enabled us to subtitle background dialogue not subtitled in the PlayStation patch.

- Graphical changes present in the PlayStation patch were implemented in this version as well. In addition, a graphic in the Prologue was changed, and an overlay was used to correct a typo in the ending cutscene. Overlays were also used in some of the bonus videos. Finally, the character nametags more closely match the in-game font.

- Graphical glitches fixed. The Saturn version of Policenauts did ship with a few of these - these glitches are no longer present.

- Graphical mistakes fixed. There were even out and out mistakes (i.e. icons signifying the wrong items, nametags given to the wrong character) that were fixed. Though these were very few, they were fixed as well.

- Inappropriate options removed. Some of the game options related to the text (including whether to display furigana) were removed where no longer appropriate for the English translation.

- Uncensored?! Yes, for whatever reason, there was a text choice locked (with no...
