The overall goal of the console is to "make the games feel welcome". Since it's debut, it has been receiving very positive reviews but has also received criticism for it's lack of innovation. As such, the console has been enormously successful, with it's biggest rival being Illusion Works' Pacifico.
The console launched on March 21st, 2016 with a standard bundle including the game, the controller, and a choice game between Tragedy (2015), Strafe: Lethal Seven, and Trifecta: Multiverse Fighters. See "Launch" for more details.
The V² is also known for being the first major console to actually publish Adult Only (AO) games, which were a rarity until it came out in support of them with Vaporwave Z. Although still somewhat stigmatized, this move proved to be a profitable one.

Refined over the Jem Zero's wireless charging controllers, the controllers charge wireless, not needing to be plugged in. However, one can still hook the consoles directly into the system, ensuring minimal input lag. The controller supports motion detection via a gyroscope and an accelerometer, plus improved vibration. It also can be used for PC Gaming, a first for a Toroko console.
The controller also has a scroll wheel as the center of the controller. This makes menus a breeze to scroll through, weapon wheels less of a hassle.
The controller, nicknamed the V-Raptor, has the following buttons:
- V2MENU Button (located in the direct center of the controller)
- Start (located to the left of the V2MENU button)
- Select (located to the right of the V2MENU button)
- Directional buttons (located on the left side of the controller) ()
- Action buttons (located on the right side of the controller) ()
- Shoulder Buttons (located on back of controller near Directional and Action Buttons)
- Inner Triggers (located closer to the middle of the controller)
- Bottom Triggers (located below Shoulder Buttons, not present on picture)
- Twin Thumbsticks (Located between the Direction and Action buttons and the center, below everything else)
- Center Scroll Wheel (Located in the center of the controller)
One can also swipe NFC figures and cards over the center of the controller.
The V2MENU features a number of applications in addition to being able to boot up games.
The V² Internet acts like you would expect it to. You can scroll through the internet with your console's controller and TV. Play Youtube videos on your screen with two different quality settings or play it off in another tab while you do something else. Search with Google, Bing, or Yahoo with ease. Send pages you come across to your friends. Set up your homepage to any page on the internet. Use Wikia to edit pages in a specifically designed editor for The V² that makes editing a complete breeze. Browse Tumblr and reblog and like with button shortcuts.
Here you can buy badges, themes, virtual console and downloadable titles. An assistant named QT will give you a quick rundown of what you're buying and might even let you try a quick demo before you buy something.
Badges are collectible decorations for the V2MENU. Badges can be placed on the V2MENU screen to decorate it, or be placed on a folder to indicate what it contains. Some badges can replace the default icons for the default applications - clicking those badges will launch the associated application.
They can be unlocked through two ways: either by unlocking them in games (similar to achievements) or buying a pack of badges at the store.
Like badges, you can dress your V2Menu up in a variety of Themes with different music and sound effects.
When you buy a game on The V², you're not just buying a game, you're also buying it's soundtrack. When you buy a game, you obtain it's soundtrack which you can listen on it's own in the Music Menu. Some games may even have multiple soundtracks!
Here is a list of soundtracks with album covers.
A wide variety of games for Virtual Console are available for The V², ranging from the Famicom to the DS. All the consoles that the Virtual Console covers:
- Neo Geo
- Playstation 1
- Playstation 2
- Game Boy Advance
The console supports the amiibo NFC Figures and Cards. By scanning a figure/card over the center of the controller, you can unlock additional content for games or add amiibo figure/card to the amiibo collection app.

The V² launched on March 21st, 2016 with a library of about 11 games, with more coming out every week. There were a reported 55+ games in development for The V², making many buyers confident in it's lasting potential.
Unlike the standard console launch, customers got the very basics and a choice between three games as their launch title. The titles were Tragedy (2015) (which also had it's own exclusive bundle), Strafe: Lethal Seven (the only title in the line up not to be made by Toroko but Inora) and Trifecta: Multiverse Fighters. It cost $350 dollars at launch, however high demand saw the consoles be sold much higher in certain regions and online stores.

System and More
- The console was originally under the working name "VRings".
- Early concept arts showed a controller that could split into two pistol-like guns.
- Like The V before it, the concept of the console is an "ideal" version of a console that Exotoro would like to own. However, while The V was focused on flashy gimmicks, The V² is a more straight-forward console.
