Kowloon's Gate is a 1996 PlayStation first person adventure game produced by Sony Music Japan released exclusively in the Japan.[1] It features FMV cutscenes through a cyberpunk take of the historic Kowloon Walled City. The game was a hit in Japan, even sparking a real-life amusement complex recreated and modeled after the look of the game.[2]

An English trailer for the game surfaced, originating from Disc #94 of Ultra GamePlayers magazine, suggesting an English localization was planned. Some people have reported that only 20-30 translated copies ever existed.

Either way, no English copies of Kowloon's Gates have ever surfaced.

It isn't dead. I just want people watching it on YouTube instead of linking it through sites so I can track who's watching it.

No, no, no, I'm confused. According to the one who uploaded the NA trailer (https://youtu.be/hnZaOEpZY18), the game didn't even made it to the shelves and the NA trailer/preview seemed to be a domestic release.

They ever translated the game or something like that? The preview has japanese text, it appears that they used a japanese trailer for the preview. I'd like to believe they never actually released or the 20-30 translated copies were for private use (and those people for some reason forgot they have a copy of the translated game or something along those lines).

Welp. If my theory is true, then what a shame. This game looks amazing, I love the OST and the aesthetic, and the fact that is based in Kowloon (tho I believe it was too soon to even develop the game, this was released in 1995, while Kowloon was "destroyed" in 1993). I hope someone develops a fan translation in a near future (especially because a VR version of the game will be released)
