HyperBoy 32Mbit Flash Cart for Virtual Boy

HyperBoy 32Mbit Flashcart

 PLEASE NOTE: Box Set Sold Optionally - You must select that option if you want to purchase the box set.  

HyperBoy is all about getting a cheaper flash cart for Virtual Boy out to VB gamers.  It's based on my HF32 design, but drops the eInk screen, cap touch buttons, haptic feedback, and SD card to reduce cost.  It requires a PC to update games and is still a "1 game at a time" cart.  I've also added some RetroOnyx flare to it like aluminum covers with laser etched graphics.  Lastely, it's the first ever VB flash cart built from 100% new parts.  No donors parts used for these!


Features overview:

  • 32 Mbit Flash memory
  • 32k x 8 nvSRAM
  • Aluminum anodized covers
  • 3D printed carbon fiber frame
  • Laser etched graphics
  • USB port for game loading
  • Uses a current generation GUI called HyperBoyFlasher


Compared to FlashBoy+, HyperBoy has the following advantages:

  • Backup of SRAM files using HyperBoyFlasher 2.0 from Thunderstruck
  • Current generation GUI
  • Automatic padding of ROM files
  • Double the flash memory
    • Holds the full Hyper Fighting ROM file
  • Four times the SRAM
  • nvSRAM, so no backup battery to worry about


OPTIONAL HyperBoy Box Set (available only as add on to the HyperBoy Flash Cart)

A box set plus a flash cart can give you that "complete in box" (CIB) feel of an original game release.

This box set has a quick start card instead of a manual. Quck start guide, tray insert, cart bag, box protective sleeve

    It`s all right.

    Having to go through the flash process just makes me wish there was an on-screen flash menu like on an Everdrive rather than linking to a computer. On my primary workstation I could not get the recommended Hyperboy software to recognize the cart, despite multiple attempts at installing the drivers recommended on the Hyperboy site. I ended up having to try a spare laptop. Thankfully it worked there, but the whole thing was a major hassle and pretty frustrating. Once I got to actually flashing, it took quite a while to actually do so--the flash process is quite slow. Overall the product feels well built, but be warned, if you can`t get the Hyperboy software detecting your cart on your PC, you might be SOL.

    An excellent flash cart, can only hold one game at a time, but is big enough to hold the (currently) largest 4mb homebrew games such as Hyper Fighting and the Formula V demo. The PC utility is easy to use, but make sure you have a micro USB cable as the cart didn`t come with one.
