Virtual Boy downloads on the 3DS would be so awesome! It would look 1000x better just by porting it to the 3DS' 3D.

Changing the red to white (or black to white and red to black) would also help a great deal.

How dare you! As someone who owned a Virtual Boy, i must say that that color scheme is classic!

did you know that the virtual boy did not have 2 screens inside? ... it didn't even have one screen... it had a line of pixels... a 1 × 224 LED array which sat in the middle of the machine refreshing really fast... then 2 spinning mirrors reflected the image... sort of like those led clocks that are just a line of dots but when spinning reveal the time
... tech was way ahead of its time... super interesting stuff
