Virtual Bart (バーチャルバート) is a video game starring Bart Simpson of The Simpsons, and was released for the Sega Mega Drive in 1994. It was the last Simpsons game to see a release on a home Sega console , the last to be published by Acclaim (whose handling of the franchise was seen as iffy), and the only Simpsons game on the Mega Drive to be published by them (the other games were published under their Flying Edge label).

Virtual Bart has Bart complete a series of minigames, randomly selected by a virtual reality machine.

For whatever reason, the Japanese box uses the pre-Saturn box format, including older informational icons.
