    They really should put all Virtua Boy on the 3DS.  That would be am amazing collection of digital games to own.

    Looks like a pretty cool F-Zero rip-o.. *ahem* homage, considering how little Nintendo seems to care about that franchise these days, this is a pretty nice suprise, just hope it’s gameplay lives up to what it seems to imitate.
