this is a quick mock-up I created.
To view the 3D cross your eyes to put the images together.

This idea has already been spread around alot, and I would like to know if this would be possible on a VBOY.

Sure it could be done… the problem is finding someone to do it πŸ™ .

do you think it would fit on the cartridge?
for some reason I dont think it would, as there isn’t much room on them.
(unless you are using a large cartridge)

I hope no one mistakes the image as the real deal, because then I will be flooded with PMs

I doubt LttP would fit on a VB cart (It’s my favorite Zelda game though.) Besides, It’d be very hard to port. I’d be thinking more in the range of LA or even just original LoZ.

Oh, I just noticed, nice 3D effect. If only the real LttP were like that. πŸ™‚

It would be nice to have Link on the VB. Would you make your own zelda game or port A Link to the Past or something else? Just curious πŸ˜‰

If I knew how, I would make both.

I don’t see why LttP wouldn’t fit on a cart… it fit on an SNES cart, and I believe it was 8 mbits… that’s the size of most of the VB carts. There were also 16 mbit carts released, and 32 mbit carts could have been done with just a simple swap of the mask ROM on the board. The system actually supports up to 128 mbits, although finding that size ROM might be pretty tough.

I’d guess even though you’d need more graphics for the 3D effect, since the VB is only 2bpp (4 shades of red), you’d probably need less room for graphics since the SNES had more available colors (I don’t know what it is for sure, maybe 8bpp).

But yeah, that would be REALLY cool, but like I said… it’s a LOT of work to make a game, so getting someone to create that would be a HUGE task.

thats really cool how u do the cross eyed thing to make it 3d i never knew u could do that

if anyone ever tries to start a vb zelda project, here’s a mock up hud i once made. it is based on the idea to use the right d-pad for items just like the n64’s c buttons in ocarina of time or majora’s mask. πŸ™‚

I used Photoshop.. It took me about 20 min. I cant really explain how to do it though, sorry.

A VB Zelda game wold be the bomb! I made box art for one a little while ago. http://www.vr32.de/modules/games/index.php?type=ideas&sec=main&id=10

Yeah I saw, actually thats what gave me the idea xD

I wonder what the story would be o-o

The story? its zelda! Zelda gets kidnapped. Rescue ensues. dungeons. bosses. weapons… :p

actually each zelda is different, zelda usually get kidnapped at the end or middle of the games. So what would be the story of this one? (nothing to do with zelda turning into stone, its been done twice already)

Also she didn’t get kidnapped in Twilight Princess, she got locked in her own castle by ganon xD

maybe she gets turned into a pig and swept away in a pig farm.

xD I hope not.

Ok, so Link starts off as a simple village boy. One day a spirit visits him in his sleep, telling him a beautiful princess is trapped in a castle by an evil force, and only three emblems will be able to free her. Each emblem is in a dungeon. Once you get the emblems and head to the castle, the evil gannon opens a portal to another dimension (the third dimesion ;-)) and you have to go after her. Something like that maybe?

we should make it where you play as gannon trying to kidnap zelda and link is the main boss. might as well do something new with the 2d version of the series.

A Zelda game fore Virtual Boy sounds good fore me. If someone did a game with link and the Zelda storie i would buy it πŸ™‚

A link to the past maybe can be too big to port on Virtual Boy… but what about Link’s awakening?
The old game boy Zelda can’t be too big for Virtual Boy!
And it’s still a wonderful game… my favourite of the serie.
