Last year there were rumors that Nintendo was planning to add Game Boy games to its Nintendo Switch Online subscription service to add to the existing libraries of NES and SNES titles, as well as the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis catalogues, which are part of the subscription level of the expansion pack.
Now, a leak appears to be offering clues that Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games may be coming to the service soon.
Corresponding @trashbandatcoot Files on 4chan have been leaked on Twitter containing a Nintendo-developed GBA emulator codenamed “Sloop” and a Game Boy emulator called “Hiyoko”, both developed by the NERD (Nintendo European Research & Development) team of Nintendo of Europe, the Paris subsidiary that’s been responsible for much of the company’s emulation efforts over the last few years – including the emulators in the Classic Mini consoles and the N64/GameCube/Wii emulation in Super Mario 3D All-Stars.
There was even a video of said Game Boy (Advance) emulator allegedly running on the console the account that posted it was quickly deleted.
Does this surefire evidence suggest we’ll be playing Game Boy and GBA games on Switch in the near future? Let us know what you think in the usual place.
