HOT NEWS : MSX classic Metal Gear is coming to the Amiga 500

A bit of a news special at this late hour, as I was just about to go to bed, and Saberman contacted us to let us know that h0ffman is working on bringing the MSX classic of 'Metal Gear' to the Amiga 500. Yes indeed this is hard to believe, but not only has the game has been in dev since Nov 2020, but the developer said he has been tirelessly working on it and the gameplay code is 90% complete!

Furthermore, the upcoming port has been converted to run at full frame rate, original MSX version would mostly run at 25/30 frames but worse during busy scenes. An option will be implemented to play with the original European translation and updated translation which is closer to the Japanese original, and finally it will include the original sound track and sound effects as well as a fully enhanced sound option!

"this port was only really possible because someone did a full commented disassembly of the original game. It looked like a silly amount of work but it made it perfect for porting".
