More news from Planet Virtual Boy:
Today we have a bunch of new Virtual Boy videos for you. In cooperation with Grooveraider, we are happy to present you with a total of 4 tradeshow videos from WCES 1995 and E3 1996, showing some fantastic, never before seen stuff.
Nintendo Laser Montage (E3 1996)
Just before a live demonstration of the long awaited Nintendo 64 console on E3 1996. Actor/voiceover Charles Martinet kept the trade show attendees amused while portraying Mario's nemesis Wario on an enormous C-shaped projection screen complete with a laser montage of Nintendo's game line-up. You had to have been there to really experience Nintendo's MASSIVE show booth.
E3 1996 VB Booth
The Virtual Boy booth at E3 1996 with a lot of VB display with playable versions of Bound High and Dragon Hopper. This contains some seconds of Dragon Hopper footage!
WCES 1995 VB Booth
Camera footage showing the Virtual Boy booth at WCES 1995. The video consists of three parts:
1. Surrounding of the VB booth
2. People waiting in front of the VB booth in order to be let into a darkened room where numerous VB Demos were shown on video
3. Coming out of the Demo room into another area with many VB displays
Virtual Boy Technical Demos (WCES 1995)
The fourth and last video shows 3:45 minutes of camera footage of the Virtual Boy demos shown on video on WCES 1995! You'll see not only prototypes of Teleroboxer, Galactic Pinball, Red Alarm and Vertical Force, but also the F1 and Dolphin demos as well as the first ever moving images of the Mario and Starfox demos!
Bonus: Mario Demo (WCES 1995)
The complete Mario demo, taken from the above video of VB demos at WCES 1995.
Furthermore, Grooveraider sent us new and better scans of almost all press releases from WCES 1995 and E3 1995, a WCES 1995 VB brochure, as well as this picture of him with Gunpei Yokoi and his autographed copy of the E3 1995 programme. Yokoi signing it can be seen in this video we added earlier. Jealous? I certainly am.
A huge thank you goes out to Grooveraider for everything!
