Yeah... it sounds a lot like Space Squash, but with certain differences such as multiple balls being in play at the same time, as well as the very likely presence of gravity, which acts on all the balls at all times and which keeps your character bound to the ground.

How do all these games have screen shots and what not and yet none of them have been found? There has to be some Japanese collector with these.

Another good question is: how did the Famitsu Magazine article writers know details about the games, which could not be deduced by looking at the screenshots alone? Were they given written descriptions of the games from the developers, or were they given demo carts of the still unfinished games to test out themselves? If the latter, all of our desired prototype games could still be sitting in a closet somewhere at one of the offices of Famitsu Magazine.

I forgot to mention that the original Japanese articles for the previous two unreleased Virtual Boy games, namely “Gulf Battlefront: Red City” and “Flying Henry,” appeared in the 355th issue of Famitsu Magazine, dated October 6, 1995, on page 223. The following Japanese article, also for the unreleased Virtual Boy game translated into English as “Flying Henry,” appeared in the 363rd issue of Famitsu Magazine, dated December 1, 1995, on page 113.

That's quite a vague description. It sounds like Fishbone. :D

いっぷう変わったブロックくずしゲーム。画面中に現われるボールを2匹のキャラクターを使って打ち返し、ブロックに当てて壊していくのだ。多彩な動きをする2匹のキャラクターを、くっつけたり伸ばしたりしながらボールを打つことが、クリアーする秘訣だぞ。
This is an unconventional breakout game. It focuses on using two characters to repeatedly hit a ball, which appears in the screen, into blocks to break them. The trick to clearing each stage is hitting the ball while performing various moves with the two characters, sometimes sticking them together and sometimes stretching them out.

ステージは50以上
THERE ARE MORE THAN 50 STAGES!

パチンコやピンボールをモチーフにした面、巨大なボス面がある。
There are surfaces in the motif of pachinko and pinball, as well as giant-boss surfaces.

There is a game for Steam that is probably very similar to what Virtual Block would have been. It is called "Wizorb." I love Wizorb, so I probably would have loved Virtual Block, too.
