Game Boy games coming to Nintendo Switch Online
For some generations, Nintendo consoles have offered the possibility of accessing games from previous machines through what is known as nintendo virtual console. And it must be admitted that the idea was always good, although it also generated the feeling of not being sufficiently exploited.
With the Nintendo Switch this option is also available through the Nintendo Switch Online service. In it, the current games belong to the Nintendo and Super Nintendo, but it could soon be expanded with those of other important consoles in the history of the company. That’s what they were saying from Nintendo Life earlier in the week and soon after they confirmed it again in Eurogamer.
Both had been able to speak with some trusted sources who claimed that the Big N company was going to incorporate the Game Boy and Game Boy Color game catalog, at least a part. Because it is true that without an official confirmation you cannot speak sharply. In addition to the fact that the offer made up of those of NES and SNES is around 100 titles when there really are many more.
However, whatever they are, it is clear that it will be worth it. Because in both machines there were important titles that marked an entire era. Although it is also true that with so many devices capable of emulating Game Boy games, the great advantage is that you would not have to carry two devices: your Switch and your emulator.
For when games of Game Cube, Nintendo 64 or Wii
With this more than likely move by Nintendo, which would bring the Game Boy and Game Boy Color games to the Switch, it would be normal to wonder when those of other consoles. Because the company’s latest laptop has the power to run machine games like the Game Cube, Nintendo 64 or Wii.
Well, it is difficult to answer, because there are studies that are considering the possibility of recovering some classics and remake updated. Therefore, unless Nintendo has the licenses, it is difficult for that to happen. But also seeing everything, it is more than likely that it will end up happening. Although for this you have to wait more.
Game Boy titles that could arrive
As we have commented, until the official confirmation by Nintendo nothing can be assured, but if you had to choose what titles we’d like to see on Nintendo Switch Online, they would probably be these:
- Pokémon Red and Blue
- Donkey kong
- The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
- Super Mario Land and Super Mario Land 2
- Bubble bobble
- Kirby’s Dream Land
- Donkey Kong Land
- Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters
There are many more and surely those who played in their day will have others, so we will see what ends up happening. For now, the important thing is that the game offer is expanded. Thus, it will be worth paying a little more for the online service that adds other advantages.
