Don't think there are any games missed, but there might be some patches missing from the game pages (for instance Insmouth doesn't have its recent translation available in the game section).

You can get the Mario's Tennis multiplayer patch here:

So glad to see this Dan. You can add me to the prospective buyer's list too (2 sets).

So Benj Edwards (who wrote that great VB article) has in recent times been building arcade sticks for different systems.

He's now got around to the VB:

Another great title often over-looked is Ninja Gaiden Shadow. Although despite the name it isn't quite a Ninja Gaiden game, it appears to have been renamed that for the NTSC region from Shadow Warriors.

Actually Ninja Gaiden Shadow is the original (western) name and it was renamed Shadow Warriors for the European release. The NG arcade game, most of its ports and the NES title were also originally renamed Shadow Warriors.

You're correct to say it isn't quite a Ninja Gaiden game however, as it was originally going to be a Game Boy Shadow of the Ninja title. Play Shadow of the Ninja (NES, re-released in recent years on Wii/Wii U/3DS) and you'll notice the similarities.

Apparently you can get more than five players on Faceball if you use the GBA link cables.
There's a thread here:

but the images no longer show up.

These look so cool; I hope I've made it into the finalfornow batch. It's amazing to think the red and black wonder finally has a link cable. I imagine two-player Mario's Tennis and Hyper Fighting are great fun and it'll be interesting to see what future projects will do.

Amazing work. Mario's Tennis was always a good game for showing off what the VB could do, so adding (re-enabling) multiplayer makes it even better.
