Nintendo Virtual Boy Gets A Sister: The Virtual Girl

Fan-Made-Nintendo-Virtual-Boy-GirlThroughout Nintendo's colourful past, their handheld systems have usually been given a masculine name. While there may have been pink versions of the Game Boy, Nintendo have never referred to any of these as being a Game Girl. Having said that, one retro gamer is about to rewrite history by modifying a Nintendo Virtual Boy into a Virtual Girl.

Now before anyone panics, the Virtual Girl is not what it sounds like, nor does it have anything to do with adult toys. The Nintendo Virtual Girl is one virtual reality fan's way of creating a more feminine variant of the portable system.

Featuring a hot pink color instead of the crisp red often found on a Nintendo Virtual Boy, the fabled VR system has been given a complete face lift, along with its controller buttons too. Although still a work in progress, the system's new theme looks somewhat normal and almost as if it could have been part of Nintendo's plans all along - something we'll never know due to the Virtual Boy's short lifespan.

Needless to say we're rather enticed by this stunner, even if there's still a boy beneath the colours!

Needs to be finished by putting VirutalGirl on the outside of it. Though... VirtualGirl is something completely different :(
