Modder adds two-player feature to Mario Tennis on Virtual Boy

Nintendo originally had plans for multiplayer on the Virtual Boy, but the device didn't last long enough on the market to make that happen. All these years later, a fan has stepped in to take care of things.

Now with a new patch, people can enjoy multiplayer Mario Tennis. All they need is the patch, two Virtual Boys, two copies of Mario Tennis, and a standard Category 5 cable. May the Virtual Boy live on forever!
