Game Boy And Game Boy Advance Games Are Coming To Nintendo Switch Online

As Nintendo continues to expand its library of online games available on the Nintendo Switch Online service, two consoles that have been sorely missing are the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance. Both had very full libraries on previous Nintendo consoles but Switch owners were unfortunately left out to dry with no way to play their favorite portable game consoles. At least that was the case until Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Nintendo announced that Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games would finally be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service. Players with the basic service would only be able to play Game Boy games while everyone with the Expansion Pass would be allowed to play GBA games. Here’s the full list coming to both consoles.

Game Boy:

  • Tetris
  • Super Mario Land 2
  • Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening DX
  • Gargoyle’s Quest
  • Game & Watch Gallery 3
  • Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare
  • Metroid II – Return of Samus
  • Wario Land 3
  • Kirby’s Dream Land

Game Boy Advance

  • Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3.
  • WarioWare Inc: MegaMicroGames
  • Kuru Kuru Kururin
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

All games will have online multiplayer between friends. They also teased a few more games that will be coming in the future, such as Pokemon TCG and Fire Emblem.

This is really exciting. Some of these games have been getting harder to find over the years and both the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance have deep libraries for Nintendo to pull from. Hopefully, they will continue to support both console services and fill them with classic games for fans to play through.
