Apparently, Virtual Boys are no longer part of Nintendo’s history. Awesome video, nonetheless.

    Understandable, Virtual Boy was pretty forgettable.

    Biggest omission was the GBA SP in my opinion. The Micro hardly sold any units in comparison, and yet gets featured.

    Also for the list of skipped systems the game boy pocket which shrunk the standard game boy to the size that was later used for the color version.

    Technically addons and not systems but Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player which allowed you to play the handheld games on the Super Nintendo and Game Cube respectively.

    There are also a few addons that were never released in the US like the N64DD.

    What I found funny was that for the DS lite and DSiXL, they used Pokemon Black/White 2 as the game, but they weren’t released at that time.

    They put down the wrong year for the 3DSXL it was in 2012 not 2011.

    Great style and awesome animation, even if there might have been some questionable creative decisions. (What bugged me most was the Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal screenshot on the Gameboy Micro.) All in all a nice video though.
