Game Boy games coming to Switch?
Rumours claim Nintendo is planning to expand the Switch Online retro game catalogue with Game Boy and Game Boy Color games in September.
Switch Online is nearing its third anniversary, and it's not exactly impossible that Nintendo is planning to mark the occasion with something new. The rumours are not new either: The first evidence of Game Boy coming to Switch Online was uncovered by dataminers in 2019.
- Game Boy launched in April 1989
- Game Boy Color was introduced in 1998
- The Switch NES app can also emulate Game Boy
All-in-one: There are unused emulators inside the NES app, leading to speculation that more retro platforms could make a comeback on Switch. Virtual Console for Wii, 3DS and Wii U featured games from Sega and Neo Geo consoles, as well as arcade classics.
No advance: It doesn't seem like Game Boy Advance games will be appearing any time soon, though several developers are working on re-releases of games from the classic handheld, including Nintendo itself.
