SEGA AGES has already provided us with some fantastic retro Sonic goodness on Nintendo Switch, with the original Mega Drive classic Sonic the Hedgehog available on the eShop. But, if a new Famitsu interview is any indication, it seems that developer M2 could be on the cusp of being able to deliver Dreamcast titles on the hybrid console too.
According to M2 CEO Naoki Horii, the process of emulating the Sega Dreamcast has largely been figured out already – the only stumbling block now is in deciding exactly how games from the retro console are delivered. “Depending on whether you are going to emulate or pick up the source code and make it remake, the transplant work will be different,” Horii said to Famitsu.
“I think that Sega chooses for each title there, but since emulation can also increase the number of other games that can be emulated.” So, we could soon be seeing classic Dreamcast titles such as Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Shuffle (see a pattern with our game choices?) hit Nintendo’s portable home console.
