Virtual Boy’s latest game supports Rumble Pack


Remember when we reported in 2017 that Virtual Boy-one of Nintendo’s biggest business failures-was due to VUEngine getting new software? Well, a game like this is being offered in demo form, and the surprises don’t stop there. It also supports new unofficial Rumble Pack accessories.

Capitan Seville 3D Based on 2010 title Capitan Seville 2 Rubén Garcerá Soto (Rubén Garcerá Soto), this in itself is right Capitan SevilleLaunched on Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and MSX in 1988.

In 2018, the team behind the game used VUEngine to rebuild it and “re-made” the game to take advantage of Virtual Boy’s 3D display. A demo has been released, which “contains all the areas of the original 2010 demo, Rubén’s new sprites, updated game mechanics, and newly reworked backgrounds for more stereo depth, music and sound effects.”

Due to funding issues, the project was shelved in 2019, but now it’s up and running, it will support Kevin Mellotcoming soon Virtual Boy Rumble Pack. Capitán Sevilla 3D will be the first public game to use this device.

The problem is that this is just a demo, not a complete game; however, the project is not “dead” like this; the source code is available at GitHub And the VUEngine team hope that others can take over and continue to work.

If you have a Virtual Boy flash car, you can play the demo right away, but those who don’t have the hardware can Play online On the planet Virtual Boy.
