Virtual Boy

Virtual Boy Tech Demos

The Virtual Boy was released in July 1995 in Japan and August 1995 in USA. It was met with a lukewarm reception that was unaffected by continued price drops. Nintendo discontinued it the following year. Due to the short lifespan of the system, only 22 games were released. Of them, 19 games were released in the Japanese market, while only 14 were released in North America. [Info from Wikipedia]

Celine found some images from early Virtual Boy Tech Demos / Target Renders in Super Power magazine issue #34. Most of them look like early visualization of released Virtual Boy games, such as Golf and Mario Clash. We can also notice the “Sample Demo” that came with the VUE Debugger software, in which you can move a ball around a three-dimensional field.

Also, Grooveraider preserved some videos of the demos shown at the Winter CES 1995 in his Youtube Channel!

Thanks to Jason for the english corrections!

Mario Land [Virtual Boy – Cancelled]

VB Mario Land is a cancelled game /  prototype of the Mario Virtual Boy game that actually became Mario Clash. Nintendo was originally developing this as a full mario platform game, as show at E3 1995. The original project was cut and Mario Clash became just a remake of the classic Super Mario Bros, with featured small 3-d elements to show what the Virtual Boy was graphically capable of. For example, some parts exchanged the original idea of warp pipes with 3-d doorways that players enter by pressing up on the D-pad.
