3D Screenshots of Samus Returns Viewable on Virtual Boy

While this is more of an “art project” then a “game”, I still thought it was excellent and wanted to share it with everyone!:  User STEREO BOY on the Planet VB forums has created “slide shows” with over 50 3D screenshots of the 3DS game Samus Returns

This is an extension of a bigger project to archive some of the 3D screenshots saved on the Miiverse.  Here’s STEREO BOY’s own description:  

The Miiverse was a gaming community (by Nintendo) where users were able to post 3D screenshots of their 3DS game play. On november 1st 2017 the website was shutdown. Before that, I’ve downloaded about 130.000 screenshots (20 GB) of different 3DS games. But not all of them were 3D screenshots. If users posted screen shots with the 3D-slider set to zero, also an mpo-file containing two views was uploaded. So 2D screenshots were technically not distinguishable from 3D screenshots.As I only wanted to keep the 3D shots, KR155E wrote me a little tool, that compares the to views inside of mpo files to sort them in 2D and 3D. After sorting, only 30.000 real 3D screenshots (5 GB) were left. 1185 of 2344 Metroid screenhots were left. I sorted 150 interesting ones, this reel contains 50 of them.

I love to see projects that archive some of the more rare-but-interesting aspects of the classic gaming world that your average gaming fan hasn’t seen!
