It seems that Yahoo are launching the original Virtual On today for two Softbank phones in Japan (the 930P and 931P, made by Panasonic). Priced at 315 yen it appears to contain the entire game, with 8 playable VR’s (so Jaguarandi and Z-Gradt aren’t available basically). Visually it looks similar to the Saturn version, which isn’t a bad thing by any stretch (as it worked great on a pad). In any case, we want it and with any luck we could even see an iPhone version.

    I can’t imagine VO would be comfortable or competitive to play on a cellphone at all.

      I dunno, if it’s a port of the Saturn version it would work fine on a mobile phone – as the setup was very simple and suited to straightforward button layout. iPhone would be awkward though, especially if they went the virtual stick route.

    Useless gimmick. Sad to see how even Virtual-On gets bastardized into oblivion these days. I’m glad I didn’t already cut my wrists over Sonic becoming a mobile-phone inhabitant. Because now I can still do it over iphone Virtual-On.
