Teasing The Virtual Boy On Its 15th Birthday

It was 15 years ago this month that the ill-fated Virtual Boy, Nintendo's only real failure in the video game hardware market, was released in Japan. To celebrate, here are mock-ups of some games that never appeared on the system!

Pixel Joint are running a contest this week to draw up what it would look if some games that never made the Virtual Boy had indeed been made for the console.

Metroid Prime is great, but Monkey Island, that's just incredible.

    Funnily enough I finally got to play with a virtual boy today at game on. What a piece of crap. I've always wanted to have a go at one but I just couldn't appreciate anything about it.

    Here's to another 15 years of good nintendo products :)
