Gaming News Nintendo Switch: Golden Sun, Pokémon… the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance soon in online subscription?
More or less expected since the official release of the NES and Super NES catalogue, Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games could appear on the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. At least, that’s what we can hope for with the latest rumors about the sharing of emulators that Nintendo may have developed for these portable consoles.
- A Game Boy Advance emulator and a leaked Game Boy emulator?
- Fire Emblem, Mario and Luigi… Tested many games
A Game Boy Advance emulator and a leaked Game Boy emulator?
that Nintendo Switch Online is the main subscription service of the Nintendo Switch. Like its direct competitors of the likes of PS+ or Xbox Game Pass, it offers a range of services in exchange for a monthly or yearly subscription. One of these services is the catalog of retro games, available at no extra cost: NES and Super NES in the program, but since October also those of the Nintendo 64 and the Megadrive (access to which, however, generates a higher subscription) . However, two more consoles could join the service.
At least that’s what o can believe judging by the posts from Twitter user @Trashbandatcoot. It seems that during yesterday, Game Boy and Game Boy Advance emulators were shared online. With them a long list of games tested on it, with console references such as Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age or Pokémon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire.
So, Nintendo’s official Game Boy Advance emulator for the Nintendo Switch has just been leaked. Now all that’s left to do is wait for NSO to add GBA. pic.twitter.com/mEJcKrRtzL

Fire Emblem, Mario and Luigi… Tested many games
In fact, Trashbandatcoot explains that four files were shared on 4chan. Two of them are DKFrom where Nintendo Switch Program : the first one is called sloop, which includes a Game Boy Advance emulator, while the second is called Hiyoko (whose name was already known in 2019) and which is the Game Boy emulator. It seems that these two programs are developed by NERD (Nintendo Europe Research Program) and that they both work, although they contain some bugs. On this topic, it is the user RatgorlHunter who shares videos recorded with these programs… But their Twitter page has been deleted. Still on the same subject, there are many GBA games that have been reviewed by Nintendo. This is user MondoMega sharing a long track listand which insists on one point: If this leaked Emulators becoming something official from Nintendo does not mean that all the titles shared in this list will be available one day. Among them we can find Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Metroid Fusion or Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga.
Of course, such a leak should be treated with caution. On this subject, it is youtuber ModernVintageGamer who has concerns about veracity, on one point in particular: one of the shared screenshots shows a cartridge EZ Flasha way for hackers to bypass Nintendo’s systems:
Nintendo using EZFlash cartridges internally seems odd to me. I don’t think Nintendo developed it when this leak came to fruition.
An argument that seems to be opposed to another data digger : OatMeal Dome. If NERD were behind the development of these two emulators and to whom we owe the European subsidiary NSO or Super Mario 3D All-Stars would be helped by Panasonic Vietnam For the development. In any case, today it is too difficult to guarantee the imminent arrival of Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games in the Nintendo Switch Online catalog. The early stage of development of the emulators (which may have been abandoned by now) and the veracity of the files shared on 4chan are being questioned. So wait and see.
