Very odd 32-bit virtual reality handheld concepted console. :) It was intended to be a handheld, but had to be on the table and player looks virtual reality-style attached googles while playing. People encountered headaches after few minutes of playing and whole console finished with big unsuccess (it was actually the biggest flop of Nintendo ever) and it caused that Gumpei Yokoi, creator of Virtual Boy (but also very successful systems like Game Boy, and games like Pokemon or Donkey Kong) left the company.

Emulation info:

Red Dragon - seems to be the best choice (but don't expect big compatibility because of really good hardware of Virtual Boy and virtual reality-strange games), though I haven't tested it a lot.

This emulation info was written on 18.December 2002. (This time is very important, because emulation info very depends on the time it was written - emulators can improve a lot after this time..).
