Wow... I almost thought this was legit for a moment. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Virtual-Boy-VB-SD-GUNDAM-DIMENSION-WAR-CIB-English-Version-/290960166135?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item43be93ccf7

I really thought it might have been a repro, but was a little unsure. Then I read the description which describes it to be in English "as it would have been if it was released in the US/Canada".

I never seen a repro like this though. Does the booklet have anything in it? and there is a TRANSLATED version of SD Gundam Dimension War? this is still pretty cool.

EDIT: Apparently this repro was something Uncle Tusk did.

I never heard of "Flying Henry". Is that one a previously unknown unreleased game?

Yes, as you already noted, "Virtual Battle Ball" was later named "Virtual Dodge Ball." Only 2 screenshots of this game are made available online, as far as I know, and they come from Famitsu Magazine Issue 353 (Sep. 22, 1995 Issue):

http://www.planetvb.com/modules/articles/?s020292006

As for the first part of NikoChan Battle, namely "Is there an enemy in the corner smiling!?" I have no idea what is going on with that. It doesn't seem that Bullet-Proof Software would have ever intended "Is there an enemy in the corner smiling!?" to be a part of NikoChan Battle's title; nevertheless, the only things that usually appear in these spots on the Release Schedule pages of the Famitsu Magazines are the titles of the upcoming games and no more, so it does cause one to wonder. Either BPS did want it to be a part of the title for an extremely short period of time, which is why that part of the title no longer appeared on the Release Schedule page of the very next week's issue of Famitsu, or it was placed there by someone from Famitsu in error and was then corrected in time for the next week's issue. I guess I would have to conclude that the latter is more likely the case.


"Is there an enemy in the corner smiling!? NikoChan Battle" certainly is a silly title for a game. It reminds me of the DS/3DS game "Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd you steal our garbage?!".

Nikochan battle is the same as Faceball.

Virtual battle ball however...not sure what that is.

Thanks for translating Benjamin!


I tried to find by a unreleased game page showing an alternate name and apparently Virtual Battle Ball is this: http://www.planetvb.com/modules/games/?u023g

It definitely says Signal Rat in this scan.. Katakana is usually used when the words originated from another language, usually English. I'm not sure what Tatto (or Tat) would mean unless it's a word they made up for the game. Otherwise, Signal Rat doesn't exactly make a whole lot of sense either.


Well, it said it was a race game, right? maybe it's a joke on "rat race".

As for "tat", I know that's British slang for "rubbish, junk" but I doubt that's what they were referring to.

I told him (on Twitter) how you were wondering (and so am I) about if he would make a shirt like that. I hope he does it.

EDIT: He answered and said "maybe I would look into it but thatís a long way off. Too busy with retro game crunch and other projects right now."



It's a good thing I own a printing company, then, I guess.


You would make some?

I know this is unrelated to the topic, but I've always wondered why some of the Dragon Hopper screenshots were taken while the VB was showing a low battery signal...

Thanks GYF:)

To be honest GYF I think it would look better pixelated also.


That idea kind of reminds me of this;
