In Japan, unlike in North America, there was never a rental program during the commercial life of the Virtual Boy, whereby prospective customers could rent a Virtual Boy unit and/or games before buying them outright. Therefore, prospective customers had to play the VB games inside a retail store using the VB demo unit in the store, if they wanted to try them out before making a purchase. Six of the Japanese Virtual Boy games were sent to stores specifically for this purpose, and they each included a "Sample for Demonstration" sticker on their game boxes, which let the store know that these specific copies of the games were not to be sold to customers but were only to be used for the VB demo unit. The six Japanese Virtual Boy games that came in this "demo-only" form were Mario's Tennis, Red Alarm, Teleroboxer, Galactic Pinball, Mario Clash, and Wario Land. On each orange sticker on the game boxes for these games, it reads "この商品は実演用サンプルとしてご使用ください", which translates to "This product should be used as a sample for demonstration." Finding copies of these Japanese demo games is extremely difficult these days for a few of them, especially Mario's Tennis and Teleroboxer. Hope this info helps.

I have found in my years of VB collecting that Red Alarm and Mario's Tennis are the hardest Japanese demos to find. I have looked for them religiously even after acquiring all 6 in the set, and to this day I've only ever seen 1 copy of Mario's Tennis demo for sale, and I've actually seen 0 copies of Red Alarm japan demo for sale, but I was lucky enough to talk another collector into selling their copy. Perhaps I just got really lucky with Teleroboxer, I found a copy the very first time I ever looked for one, and really haven't seen them for sale since either.

Also worthy of note is that the Red Alarm sticker looks different from the other 5 Japanese demos. 5 of the demos have an orange sticker on the upper right side of the box, while Red Alarm has a red sticker on the upper left side of the box.

LMAO yes. I just got the last game I needed for my collection so I figured it was an appropriate thing to do. I couldn't get my husband to stop laughing the entire time I had him take the pictures. I had to get him a tripod because he laughed to hard to hold it steady lol
