The French developer Frogbull wowed Metal Gear Solid fans last month by getting a version of the 1998 tactical espionage game to run on a Sega Saturn emulator and now he is back with yet another impressive demo of a classic Metal Gear Solid game operating on an old Sega system.
Over the weekend, the modder announced across both Patreon and Twitter, that he had successfully put together a prototype of the 2001 sequel Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for the Sega Dreamcast, posting a video of the demo to his YouTube channel (thanks Dreamcast Junkyard). Much like the Sega Saturn demo, it represents another fascinating 'What if?', giving a glimpse into an alternative timeline where Konami's critically acclaimed series was made available for Sega hardware.
The roughly 3-minute video starts by showing off a bunch of logos for the Dreamcast, Sega, and Konami, before displaying a menu where Frogbull loads an existing file from a Visual Memory Unit and is dropped into the Tanker prologue starring Solid Snake.
The video then shows Snake sneaking about a bit, opening lockers, before stumbling across a special tribute to Hidekazu Yukawa, the forming managing director of Sega during the Dreamcast days who featured prominently in Dreamcast's Japanese marketing campaign.
