Virtually Unplayable: The Story of Virtual Boy

In 1995 the Virtual Boy was poised to be Nintendo’s next big handheld, but the red and black behemoth soon became one of the greatest flops in gaming history. Join Memory Card co-hosts Ben Bertoli and PushDustIn as they break down the bewildering history behind this ill-fated console and its small library of games to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Stick around after the history lesson for a special mini concert from Australian chiptune sensation and Memory Card mix master JAMATAR, who will be crafting and remixing a special set of Virtual Boy tribute tracks.
