    The Angry Video Game Nerd has the best quote about Wario Land: "I wish I could say it sucks, but it's actually a good game. Damn good, in fact. But, only one problem: it's on Virtual Boy."

    [face_laugh] yup. That might be the only really good game on the system, although Mario Tennis is pretty good. The system ony had about 22 games.

    Ooo, I kinda want to replay this...but then again I kinda don't. That one horrible, horrible tower that I think was in World 8.....

    I also did not play Mario 64 back in the day, and only got around to it with the DS version. And that game too was incredibly rage-worthy.

    The Virtual Boy died forever young.

    I also missed out on 64 back in the day. Never owned an N64, so the first time I played it was on the recent 3D All-Stars package. I didn’t get very far. After playing the masterful Galaxies and the slightly lower tier but still fantastic Odyssey, 64 is just really tough to go back to if you don’t have nostalgia for it.

    They should port Wario Land on the VB to the Switch. Maybe put the Game Boy Warios on there too.

    I don't believe we've ever had an official VB emulation option- and they might be reluctant to port it without maintaining the 3D effect (they really should have done this on the 3DS). The GBA Warios were on Wii U VC, though. The GB ones might have been on 3DS VC?

    I don’t think Nintendo wants to acknowledge the Virtual Boy library existed. Even the Virtual Boy barely gets nods in, like, Smash trophies.

    They don't lean heavily into it, for obvious reasons. But they don't totally ignore it- previous Animal Crossings had the VB as a piece of furniture and ROB has an alternate VB color scheme in Smash, for instance. And they usually acknowledge Mario Tennis's origins on the system.

    They rarely parody it (and are usually self-aware about it). Like in Luigi's Mansion 3, Luigi communicates with E. Gadd through the Virtual Boo, red graphics and all, with Gadd saying it would probably sell well.

    I played Wario Land for VB on my tv. The 3D stuff still worked, you can go further away into the screen to unlock things, and there are holes in the screen with stiff behind it, creating a cool 3d effect like in old movies like the original King Kong, where they would paint the jungle on panes of glass for a 3d effect.
