Was watching a Youtube video on Donkey Kong Country today where they are interviewing the development team. To my surprise, they talk about the Virtual Boy version and how far along it got. Sounds like it got a touch farther than I thought, with actual level graphics with scrolling and sprites. Interesting stuff :)

I also just noticed, there's a little stack of VB games behind the guy talking about the VB conversion.

Everyone is in the same room, so that may just be the producer of the videos, but I thought it was a coincidence :p

So, unless I interpreted them wrong, it was more or less some bits of the GB version ported over to the VB hardware... and for some reason, I hadn't even thought of that beforehand (mostly because I had forgotten about the Land titles, oops.)

D'ya think perhaps something of that caliber would be possible with our current tools? I wouldn't mind doing the music porting job if any more news comes of MK's tracker, but I haven't seen anything of it for what feels like ages aaaaa

It's very cool to hear from one from the team that did any work on that Virtual Boy title.

Late reply but John Linneman does collect for the Virtual Boy. In fact, if he could come across with one of the Video Boy TV System units, he'll make a DF Retro episode about the Virtual Boy :-)
I would love to see Donkey Kong Country 2 ported to the VB. I mean, we got Hyper Fighting so why not this, especially with the tools that we now have? :-D
