A two-page Virtual Boy article appeared on pages 28 and 29 of the August 1995 issue of the Japanese magazine titled "Elementary School Fourth Grade."

From what I can determine, this magazine, if it were given an English title, would be called:

デジタリアン
Digitalian: TV-Game & Multi Media World Catalogue

And this particular issue is the:

'95夏季特集号
'95 Summer Special Issue

Cool, I haven't seen these Vertical Force/Panic Bomber and Red Alarm/T&E Virtual Golf advertisements before, great find!

That magazine seems to be a Famitsu spin-off or something, as they share the same mascot?

Nice how they managed to mess up the colors of the Virtual Pro Baseball artwork and print the Jack Bros screenshot upside down.

Something I found amusing is that on Page 4, it shows that I'Max was going to release a game, whose title was yet to be determined, but then on page 28, it shows the title of Insmouse No Yakata.

Yeah, I really love the add for Vertical Force/Panic Bomber. That alone made the less than $30.00 purchase of the magazine (most of which comprised shipping costs from Japan) worthwhile.

In addition to the "Dengeki Super Famicom" and "Marushō Super Famicom" magazines, there was also "The Super Famicom" magazine. It's interesting to note that "Mario's Tennis" is listed as "Mario's Vs. Tennis."
