    Virtual Boy Wario Land VC on 3DS was definitely a missed opportunity.

    They can make a helmet accessory that attaches in place of the Joy Cons so you can VR on-the-go!

    Provided that the tablet part doesn't weigh a ton.

    Because Nintendo forgot all about the Virtual Boy, that's why. (no offense)

    "Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it."
    Does this seem familiar?

    So if Nintendo forgot VirtualBoy, and are therefore doomed to repeat it, does that mean they will release a new VirtualBoy?

    No, it doesn't work like that.

    The rest of this post is just off-topic, so...

    Remember the Game Theory video "The Wii U is the new Virtual Boy"? That was where I got the quote from. Because the video mentioned that the Wii U failed for the same reasons the Virtual Boy did, while also showing how close the Wii U's reception was to the Virtual Boy. It also mentions that Nintendo has forgotten about the VB in general, showing footage of a 404 error upon accessing the Virtual Boy page on Nintendo's official Help & Support site.
