Some more Konami MSX questions

Did Hudson or Konami produce the MSX version of Pooyan? Looking at the Famicom version, it doesn't sound like Konami's work, even though they produced the original Arcade version, of course. For one thing, it doesn't have the Pause SFX Konami was using at that time.

When did the Europe-exclusive Green Beret come out, and is it intended for 60hz or 50hz?

Finally, are any of the unreleased ones (i.e. Konami's Pinball) playable via an emulator?

AFAIK, the unreleased ones are ... unreleased.
Therefore, there is no rom image, or source, that we can use to play them.
It's not even sure they went beyond the stage of a mockup screen.

Afaik Hudson made the game and konami distributed it. Green beret was released march 1986. And as far as I know there aren't any unreleased konami's out there. The beta version of gradius 2 (nemesis 2) has an alternate intro and 2 levels that didn't made the final version. Keyboard master is unreleased, but it's not a game.

Not really unreleased (as it WAS an official game) but it's still marked as missing in action: A1 GrandPrix. There is at least one person who has a copy. The game should be played on The Links (which is no longer online) but the training mode works without a connection.

I thought the MSX version of Green Beret came out at the very end of 1986, judging by the the 1986-2003 Konami logo, which debuted in August?
