At Shoshinkai 1994, Nintendo demonstrated their then-upcoming console, the Virtual Boy. To demonstrate its stereoscopic 3D effects, they made a brief demo featuring one of their most recognizable characters, Mario.


A rendered image of Mario appeared under the Virtual Boy logo, and then the logo flew towards the viewer letter by letter.[1][2][3] The demo was also apparently hard coded onto the Virtual Boy prototypes.

Virtual Boy collectors need to be notified of this search for the Mario Demo IMMEDIATELY.

Because, as said, "The demo was also apparently hard coded onto the Virtual Boy prototypes."

That does not look like Mario xD, I hope some more information about this will be uncovered in the future.

I thought someone had a prototype Virtual Boy. It had a prototype cartridge of Galactic Pinball and it had a purple controller with colorful buttons.
