Last Alert (TurboGrafx-CD)
Last Alert (Red Alert in Japan) is a run-'n'-gun game for the TurboGrafx-CD, most remarkable for its voice-acted cutscenes. It is best known for the US version's English dub, which features some of the
worst best acting in the history of video games.
At the title screen, once the animation finishes and "Push Run Trigger" appears, hold Select. Then, press I, II, I, II, Up, Down. Finally, release Select and press Run. If done correctly, you will be taken to a two-page debug menu with a cutscene viewer, a sound test and a color test. Press II to switch between pages and I to select.
Unused audio clips
Two English voice tracks on the US disc are unused. First, in the Japanese Red Alert, there is pre-fight dialogue with the claw boss in Mr. Lee's compound. This was translated and dubbed into English, but was replaced in the US Last Alert by a short musical sting that occupies track 57 on the US disc. However, the dubbed dialogue is still on the disc in the same place as the Japanese version, track 8.
|Boss: Guy, I'm going to give you a ticket to Hell as a present!|
Guy: Too bad, you better save it for yourself!
Also, Red Alert features additional dialogue with Dr. Garcia following the first boss fight against him. This was also dubbed into English, but it was replaced with another piece of music that plays from track 58 of the US disc. Again, this dialogue remains in the same part of the disc as the Japanese version, track 33.
|33||Japanese||Dr. Garcia: ガイ、そろそろインドラの準備も整ったようだ。私はシャトルで宇宙に飛び、インドラの中にあるオゾン層破壊光線のスイッチを押す 。本当に楽しかったよ。さらばだ！|
|Dr. Garcia: Guy, the Indira is just about ready now. I'm going to fly out to space in my shuttle to switch on the machine that will destroy the ozone layer! [laughs] It's been fun! Farewell!|
Guy: Garcia, I'll get you even if I have to follow you to the end of Hell!
