Developer Rinnegatamante whom we recently interviewed in the Power Supply Series and who has ported a Nintendo 64 emulator to the PS Vita / PS TV recently with the release of Deadalus x64Has another emulation project that many will be excited for as this shapes up, especially after seeing the great progress of d x64’s n64 emulation so far to this point. Now ReDream (A Sega Dreamcast Emulator) is being ported to the PS Vita as a libretro core running on RetroArch (Vita), so far its early progress, However, it looks like potential could be untapped from a developer who has some experience with the platform and emulation porting.. So far its rendering of graphics are in the early stages, so stay tuned for more progress reports from the developer..

Until then tell us in the comments below what is your favorite Dreamcast Game or memories from SEGA last hardware adventure.

    • May 31: That’s the RetroDream core running on a Ryzen 5 2600x with x86 DynaRec that’s currently getting ported to Vita. As can be seen, CPU usage stands around the 3-4% over such a CPU and the RAM usage is under 200 MB. Fairly sure we can get this to work decently on Vita/New3DS.

      • As a comparison, FlyCast core requires twice the performance sticking around a 6-7% CPU usage. RetroDream target is fast DreamCast emulation sacrificying in accuracy. Kinda like what Daedalus X64 achieves for N64 emulation.
    • June 2: Started rendering something.
