Bound High was a Virtual Boy game that was scrapped when the Virtual Boy itself was killed off by Nintendo. Virtual Boy owners never got the chance to play the game...until today. 14 years later, fans have managed to scrape together the source code and cram it into existing Virtual Boy carts. They even put together boxart-art, cartridge stickers and instruction booklets.

Very interesting.
If you don't know me, don't judge me. Calling me a fanboy is like calling someone a racial slur. Don't get mad, I'm Just sayin'.

These are the only type of "fans" that don't another the snot out of me; the ones that actually yield something positive from their fandom. This is awesome in every way possible.

I will not get into Virtual Boy homebrew.

OK, maybe just games I want. Not all of them though.
I will have to find a way to stay on top of things.

Wow, with tech, fans, and skills like this on the loose, maybe we can see other cancelled games get the physical releases they deserve. Who wants Star Fox 2? I do, I do!

Exactly! Why hasn't Nintendo done this yet? The red graphics wouldn't be so bad either, because they would be away from your face. I never had a Virtual Boy, but I played plenty of demo units. I wanted one so bad as a kid!

Well, I own a homebrew copy of this game. I Orded it from the UK to Sweden 2 or 3 years ago. With a good label but no box. And its a great game with good 3D. People are giving the Virtual boy way to much crap. I love my Virtual boy! <3
