Unreleased Nintendo Virtual Boy Link Cable Surfaces On Yahoo Auctions Japan

Nintendo-Virtual-Boy-Link-Cable-on-Yahoo-AuctionsWhile the Nintendo Virtual Boy library may be limited to a mere 22 official releases, several of the unfinished and unreleased titles which were due to hit the system have since surfaced online. Now joining these elusive prototypes is the long lost Link Cable - something which has appeared for sale on Yahoo Auctions Japan.

Although the Virtual Boy Link Cable never saw release and none of the retail titles have their multiplayer options left in, the arrival of this official accessory has plenty of collectors excited. As of speaking the only games which currently support the link cable are homebrew releases, however, there's nothing to say that there won't be hacks to existing titles such as Mario Tennis or Faceball to enable multiplayer options in the future.

Eagle-eyed retro gamers recently spotted the Link Cable in an auction for Nintendo Virtual Boy development hardware on Yahoo Auctions Japan. As of speaking the auction has reached a massive ¥104,000 (approx £600), with several days left to run.
