- The rumored Nintendo Switch Online update allows you to play Game Boy games on the Switch.
- Allegedly, the service will include a small number of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games.
- Unfortunately, it may not include Game Boy Advance games.
As of today, your Nintendo Switch Online subscription gives you unlimited access to more than 100 NES and SNES games. You can play games on Nintendo Switch through the official Nintendo emulator. They allow you to do things you could never do on the original console, such as rewinding, saving at any time, and playing games with friends online.
In response to this, Nintendo Life Confirmed by own sources that Game Boy and Game Boy Color games are likely to land on the Switch soon-maybe even this month.
Game Boy was launched in 1989 and has more than 1,000 compatible games. Game Boy Color was launched in 1998 and has witnessed nearly 1,000 games in its lifetime (it also played most of the original Game Boy games). This means that Nintendo can bring nearly 2,000 games to the Switch Online service.
However, this new aspect of retro console services is unlikely to include Game Boy Advance games. This is not to say that it will not happen in the future, but it may not happen this year.
You can already play some Game Boy games on the Switch, such as the original Final Fantasy Adventure, which is available in the Mana pack. Please keep this in mind, because the existence of these ports may mean that you will not see these games in the Switch Online service, if this rumor is true.
