We shared the demo for this game back in September and it looks like TeamVUEngine has been making great progress on it. I recommend checking out that post for a lot more info, but there’s a few other things to note:
Next, Virtual WarZone supports some homebrew hardware accessories, such as the Link Cable for versus play and Kevin Mellott’s Rumble Pack, making this a pretty unique game. Also, a battery-based SRAM chip is included to save high scores and gallery unlocks.
Overall, I’m excited to play the final version of the game!
If you’d like to learn more about the Virtual Boy, please check out the video below – The first 15 min shows all the amazing new hardware the homebrew community has developed, plus there’s some game demo’s for the rest of it. One might argue modern games created by the Virtual Boy community are far superior to most retail games and I think this stream proves it!
