I know, except for an unfinished prototype of one of the Street Fighter 2 games, there’s not really any true fighting game on the Virtual Boy.
however I do want my joystick to work with the Virtual Boy when I eventually get enough money. I played with joysticks before fighting games and unless I specifically want an analog stick or thumb pad arrangement I usually go with the stick anyway. so I have a wider universe of stuff my stick helps me with.
Other than the obvious of pad hacking, I was wondering if anyone saw if the Virtual Boy Controller Port is electronically similar to a Super NES Port or an N64 port. There are adapters which converts ping free from SNES to NES. so if there is a similar similarity between Virtual Boy and one of the other systems maybe that could help.
Otherwise I doubt it’s been popular enough to get retro fight more treatment.
Two surprising systems also didn’t get the fight treatment are N64 and Wii. N64 had some Midway exclusives that weren’t Mortal Kombat, plus Killer Instinct. And it was a surprisingly big, (mostly fighter hungry) clientele who bought some SNK emulated game collections and Tatsunoko vs Capcom. Since some games only work with the Classic Controller, you think one of the Retro boards would have a Wii solution, though it’s probably too late unless someone actually wants to go back and do it.
However there might seem to be a market and it’s because the current relevance of the Wii nunchuk Port is that the NES mini and SNES mini use the same Wii nunchuck Port that the classic controller uses.
Also I wrote Brook asking about adding a single Joy con fight stick mode for Bomberman and other 5 + player games, so it just uses either one plus or one minus Joycon, and can allow for 8 players. But I severely doubt it unless it’s really easy. Brooke is fairly focused on fighting. I’m not sure if non fighting joystick games enter the radar.
