Nintendo‘s emulation efforts on Nintendo Switch Online, as well as the Expansion Pack, have been divisive ever since the Nintendo Switch Online service began. So, with the arrival of Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance, it is not surprising to see that people are interested in how well the emulation is.
For example, Modern Vintage Gamer, or MVG for short, decided to take a look at the emulation of the Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games. Their verdict is that it is “technically very impressive”. You can see the video they posted of their findings down below.
The GBA stuff on NSO makes me irrationally happy. I really like the filter it came with
Same. Nearly a week later, and it still feels like I must be dreaming when I see GB and GBA NSO icons on my Switch
I forgot how much I enjoyed the GBA until I saw that it was announced. It has the versions of the 2D Mario games that I grew up with, my favorite era of FE, Golden Sun, my favorite Mario Tennis, and so much more.
I’m hoping we get Super Mario Advance. That was my first Mario game, and the filter on it would be amazing!
I would also like to see Sonic Advance on there. I heard it has publication issues with THQ, but otherwise I don’t think it would take much convincing with SEGA to get it on the service.
I would love to see in the collection as well because I love Sonic advance. I’m hoping for Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby to be added as well.
I have a strong feeling we’re going to see an announcement of gens 1 and 2 for the service, but gen 3 would be a pleasant surprise too. Even better if they add trading compatibility, I can see a lot of people subscribing just for that.
I also hope Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby are added.
MVG’s videos are always so good. It’s especially interesting to see his perspective here, since he’s done emulation for GB/GBC before
Why is it Nintendo is rather slow and won’t think to emulate DS and 3DS titles until 2045? Why didn’t they think to do thus now when they finally put the Gameboy Games on to the Switch?
