I'm with you.  I actually have every US release on VB as well as a FlashBoy+ but I'd still buy one of Krikzz's creations if he did it for the VB.  Under-appreciated little gem of a system in my eyes.
Attempting a complete NTSC-U NES set.  Sell me your games!

So glad to see I'm not alone on loving this little system. I'm working on my VB library now. I will do NA and then JP exclusives and another flash cart if it comes out.

Would be lovely. The Flashboy Plus is an excellent piece of kit but it's a shame that it can only hold one cart at a time.

I doubt Krikzz will get round to it though, it's too niche and has too small a selection of games.

I think it might breathe some more life into the system once people have a chance to try all the awesome homebrew.

It may only have 22 official total games but the homebrew library dwarfs it and the games are damn good most of the time. I'm gonna keep on dreaming lol

Oh I would definitely buy it, hands down. The games and the system are not as bad as everybody imagine they are, they're actually pretty fun!

Right?! VB Wario Land is the best game. Best Wario game ever IMO. Hyperfighter and Bound High! are my favorite homebrew.

Have you ever played a Virtual Boy? Emulators don't count.

There's literally only 20 games for it. Completely pointless and no reason to have one.
Owned Everdrives: Everdrive MD, Mega Everdrive, Everdrive N8, Everdrive GB X5, Turbo Everdrive, Super Everdrive, Everdrive GBA

Misc Flashcarts: SD2SNES

22 games and countless good homebrew titles and for that, a flash cart would be great.

VB is right there with NGPC, the libraries are just too small, as are the user bases.  Krikzz would never sell enough to make the investment practical.  The VB homebrews consist of largely unfinished SNES ports, which look terrible in red only, and others which are very simplistic.  Very few actually incorporate 3D the way the official releases did. 

I've played VB numerous times, it's a great novelty to own, but I personally never would because I find it too straining on my eyes.  Same feeling I had when I played my friend's in high school 20 years earlier.  GBA (if completed) will make Krikzz far more money.

even a Neo Geo Everdrive would probably sell many more times than an Virtual Boy ED, even it would cost 3 times more.
