There was a documentary that was Kickstarted a couple of years ago called "Box Art - A Gaming Documentary". (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/p ... -art-a-gaming-documentary)
Backers got an early viewing of it recently and one of the backers shared this image on Twitter. Apparently this was an internal mock up design that was almost used for the Virtual Boy. Never had seen this before!

I like the look of that design. It reminds me of the '90s.

Funny how the box is so small, I wonder what stage the design was at for them to make a box so small. Maybe just the size of a headset, which may have been intended to be on a headband at the time? It's definitely way too small to accommodate a headset and stand, that's for sure lol.

Propably a half size mockup.
To show an idea this would be enough.

Nice! I wonder if there's a frame that shows what's written in those diagonal stripes on the front…
