Before the Virtual Boy, there was the Nintendo Famicom 3D, which “used a pair of LCD shutter glasses connected to the console that would sync to the left eye/right eye images on screen, producing a convincing 3D effect.” Video after the break.

There were only a handful of titles ever released that supported the 3D accessory because it never really caught on in Japan, which also meant that Nintendo never bothered to release it in the United States either.
