According to a 1999 Nice Games magazine interview with game's director Hideo Kojima, he was asked if the game was originally released for the PC-9821 computer, knowing that it had a very long development cycle:

"Yeah, that was crazy. It was progressing pretty well at first, and by 1990 I had all the storyboarding done—I did it all myself, you see. But thanks to a department transfer at Konami, and the PC Engine port of Snatcher, for awhile I didn’t have much time to work on it. So then when we were working on the PC-9821 version, by that point there was already talk about the next-gen hardware, and that’s how it ended up getting ported to the 3DO, Playstation, and Saturn."
