Eh.

Color me faithless, but I find most of these "I have lots of info, but I'm going to just trickle it out in tiny fragments" a hot load of garbage.
Reminding me a lot of the whole "Polybius" arcade cabinet stuff.
( Great video on that here btw: https://youtu.be/_7X6Yeydgyg )

If you just take this "box art" example he's provided you can clearly tell the StarFox logo is cut out from another image as you can still see some white pixels around the edges. ( Take the bottom right of the X for example. )

Also, the font used for "REDZONE" is called "Beyond" a font made in 2011 by "imagex".

Nintendo would have to be pulling off some crazy time travel for that to happen.

Finally, I would question his story about this "box art" being used to show investors. From my experience, this is not common practice, but I think I've already put this to bed.


I truly will never understand how/why people like this "Issac" fellow get off on just perpetuating lies. :/

So the images are blurry, but the backing they are pasted onto are not, and they are perfectly rectangular? It is like he lazily tried to make it look like a scan. And how common were image drop-shadows back then?

Wow, this article:

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017 ... d_zone_virtual_boy_assets

Already quotes VirtuousRage from this very thread. The internet is a weird, self-quoting place.

Alright, who here wrote that article?

The re-used sprite assets in those screenshots and the modern CG-rendering of the Arwing on the box art make me think this is all a hoax.

Here is a link to the template of the box he used: https://i.pinimg.com/736x/45/42/a1/454 ... ual-boy-box-templates.jpg

It's downright embarrassing how bad that dude is at trolling.

Wow-za... that's literally it.
I can't believe he didn't even attempt to crop it or anything. xD

That is pathetically fake and a complete bullsheet claim.

Someone tried something similar years back with a Michael Jackson SEGA CD title, and was soon put in their place as a misleading scammer.

I lolled at "shown to investors" - that's not how the games industry works kiddo...
