Through various internet researches that I've performed in the past, I managed to figure out that Dengeki Super Famicom (電撃スーパーファミコン) Magazine is a Japanese magazine containing a nice amount of Virtual Boy coverage. To be clear, in the years 1995 and 1996, this video game magazine was separate and distinct from the competing video game magazine titled "Marushō Super Famicom (マル勝スーパーファミコン) Magazine." So far, I myself have managed to find and purchase the following issues of Dengeki Super Famicom (マル勝スーパーファミコン) Magazine:

Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: February 10, 1995 - No. 2 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年2月10日号 NO.2)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: February 24, 1995 - No. 3 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年2月24日号 NO.3)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: March 10, 1995 - No. 4 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年3月10日号 NO.4)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: April 7, 1995 - No. 6 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年4月7日号 NO.6)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: April 21, 1995 - No. 7 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年4月21日号 NO.7)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: July 21, 1995 - No. 12 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年7月21日号 NO.12)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: September 8, 1995 - No. 14 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年9月8日号 NO.14)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: September 22, 1995 - No. 15 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年9月22日号 NO.15)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: October 27, 1995 - No. 17 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年10月27日号 NO.17)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: November 10, 1995 - No. 18 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年11月10日号 NO.18)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: December 22, 1995 - No. 21 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1995年12月22日号 NO.21)
Dengeki Super Famicom Magazine: January 5/19, 1996 - No. 1 (電撃スーパーファミコン 1996年1月5日1月19日合併号 NO.1)

After thoroughly searching through these issues of the magazine, I noted all of the pages containing Virtual Boy coverage and made high resolution scans of these pages, which I would now like to share on this thread. For a time, Dengeki would include a section in its magazine called "Virtual Boy Game Flash," which would show some upcoming Virtual Boy games expected to be released. Among the issues of the magazine that I own, 1995's Number 14 issue is the first one to include this "Virtual Boy Game Flash" section, but since I am missing 1995's Number 13 issue, there is the possibility that this issue was the first to contain this section. Thus, any issues you see that I do not have above, starting from 1995's number 13 and running through several months into the year 1996, might have some nice coverage in them for other known unreleased Virtual Boy games, which do not appear among the initial scans that I've created. Hence, there might be articles and screenshots for any of the following, which do not appear in the issues I currently have:

Interceptor (インターセプト)
J.League 3D Stadium (Jリーグ3Dステージ)
Night Landing (ナイトランディング)
Out of the Deathmount (アウト・オブ・ザ・デスマウント)
Polygo Block (ポリゴブロック)
Proteus Zone (プロテウスズーン)
Signal Rat (シグナル ラット)
Star Seed (スターシード)
Strange Animal School (妖獣学園)
Sundays Point (サンディズポイント)
Virtual Double Yakuman (バーチャルダブル役満)

So if any Virtual Boy enthusiast would like to help join in the search for the Virtual Boy information contained in the missing issues of the magazine, please feel free to do so! It doesn't even have to be in the form of trying to find and purchase these issues yourself, so that you can create your own high quality scans or photographs of the pages containing Virtual Boy information. It could also be through inquiring among your network of fellow video game enthusiasts to see if any of them might already have one or more of these issues, in which case they could search for the Virtual Boy coverage and create high quality scans or photographs of the pages containing the Virtual Boy coverage and have them forwarded along to Planet Virtual Boy.

Over time, I will try to start making English translations of the pages containing the information that I find to be the most interesting. If anybody else can also help in getting English translations made for this information, that would be greatly appreciated, too!

The first Virtual Boy game given a nice article among the first magazine pages that I am posting here is "Red Alarm."

Damn, there's tons of new pictures here. I'm amazed how many of Doraemon there are now, looks like it got decently far into development.
Also we can see the Pro Wrestling Character select and title screen now!

Thanks Ben!
