President Satoru Iwata neither confirms nor denies it, however.
Despite being perhaps one of the worst devices ever created – to say nothing about the least successful – the Virtual Boy does have a strong cult-like following that has persisted to this day. Responding to queries at the 73rd annual general shareholders meeting for Nintendo, President Satoru Iwata didn’t quite announce that we’d be seeing Virtual Boy titles on the 3DS Virtual Console. But he didn’t quite deny it either.
“I cannot talk about any unannounced products on occasions like this, but Virtual Boy is a game console Nintendo launched in the past that allows players to experience a 3D world in black and red only by just looking into it.
“It was not a commercial success, but some say that it was an attractive and extremely unique product by the standards at that time. I believe your comment is that we should take advantage of our software assets from Virtual Boy and I would like to take note of that advice for the future.”
