    It finally happened! GuyPerfect from the Planet Virtual Boy Community ( http://www.planetvb.com )
    has started to work on a dedicated Virtual Boy Emulator for the Nintendo 3DS.
    You can see more on their forums:

    I was waiting for this for a long time. The Virtual Boy is maybe a flawed system but it had some nice games.
    Virtual Wario Land for example is a forgotten gem.

    There are already two Virtual Boy emulation solutions for 3DS out there.
    MednafenVB with retroarch or a port of Red Dragon. Unfortunately very incomplete and not able to play the official games in a good way.
    Both solutions are slow. The VB requires 50fps. I think 3D was also a problem with at least one of them.

    GuyPerfect is describing his project in great detail here:

    I am a coding noob but it sounds quite solid.

    I have a VB and a flash cart. I think it's safe to say Wario Land VB is the only good game.

    Tennis with a emulated link cable could be intresting.
