Awesome stuff, mmora. These were nice to see along with translations. Thanks a bunch for posting!

Have you ever come across any VB merchandise such as shirts, hats, pins/buttons, that were exclusive only to Mexico? (just curious)

Nope, but remember I'm from Spain (and these are Spanish magazines, not Mexican) so the Virtual Boy wasn't ever launched here

Apologies, good sir. You'll have to excuse me, as it's memorial day weekend here in the US, and it's possibly all this rum n coke talking/thinking...

Carry on...😉

Wow! The pictures they used to advertise the VB in the Superjuegos 51 Julio 1996 15.png were from Bound High, and is that other one dragon hopper? And also, they were originally going to release Kirby's Air Ride for the N64?!

I hadn't noticed but you are right, that was a Game Cube game in the end. I've been able to find this video of the E3 (and apparently it was cancelled first and then restarted for the Cube).

Kirby's Air Ride N64

Good eye!

Last but not least, Ultima Generación. This magazine had a really short run (12 numbers only, one year, from March 95 to March 96), but it's particular in the way they tried to focus in last generation consoles, getting really accurate and technical. This might be the reason of their demise, but even the VB got a huge coverage in number 8. The VB was also covered in the first and the last numbers of the magazine. A lot of information but nothing new, though. The only interesting snippet is in the last number, 12, which states that Nintendo is planning to relaunch the VB together with a port of Mario RPG. A long shot, isn't it?

Wow! That's certainly very interesting... I've never heard that before. If that information is indeed verifiable, it's at least really cool to know that Nintendo had some plans to make Mario RPG for the Virtual Boy. I know I would have loved to play that.
