Game Boy Nintendo Switch Online

The latest Nintendo Direct dropped some major news for Nintendo Switch Online. The Nintendo Switch Online subscription service has recently added a new library of classic Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games for players to enjoy.

Players can enjoy titles like Tetris, Super Mario Land 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX from the Game Boy. The Game Boy Advance lineup includes Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap, and Mario Kart: Super Circuit.

The only real downside here is that the Game Boy Advance games require the more expensive Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription. However, players now have a wealth of classic gaming experiences to enjoy with the Expansion Pack, including games from NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, and Sega Genesis games.

The release of these games on the Nintendo Switch provides a unique opportunity for players to revisit old favorites and relive the glory days of portable gaming. The games have been optimized for play on the Switch, with online multiplayer options and added features that enhance the original experience with the convenience of the Nintendo Switch. Without a doubt, the Nintendo Switch Online subscription has become a must-have for retro gaming lovers.
