I’m actively building Virtual Boy link cables which enable 2 player Virtual Boy game play. These are made to order with a lead time of about 2-3 weeks. Parts for builds are ordered after payment. Contact me via my Contact Us page if interested. Otherwise enjoy the information below on how the cable was developed. Thanks!

I’ve been working on a link cable project so that people can finally play Virtual Boy in 2 player versus mode! The most famous being Hyper Fighting. Then the only other two games that are VB 2 player are 3D-BattleSnake and Tic Tac Toe. All three games are Homebrew as no official Nintendo 2 player VB game was ever released. If you’re interested in a cable send me an email.
And my first VB link cable shown below. Played 2 player Hyper Fighting!
Here’s an updated print with better finish just by changing the print orientation. These are FDM prints.
I had an SLS print also made as well as a nylon print in white. The first two on the left are the FDM Onyx prints, followed by the SLS HP PA12, and then the nylon.
And now a picture of the first cable itself.
The latest parts look really good!
Here’s a few cables made with the new better finish parts. Officially shipping now!
If you’re so inclined you can 3D print the parts yourself. These were tweaked to print best in Onyx on a Markforged printer. Center, Shell 1, and Shell 2. You’ll need 2 sets of these parts to make connectors for one cable.
And one last picture to show some Link cable games. Currently these are the only 2 player link cable games available as of 11/19/2017. All homebrew. Most recently Mario Tennis has been patched for 2 player action!
