Game Boy Switch Online

Game Boy Switch Online games are now officially a thing. As part of today’s exciting Nintendo Direct presentation, where we got a brand new trailer for The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo officially added Game Boy and Game Boy Advanced titles to its Switch Online library. While much of the collection is already available now, some of it is also locked behind the Expansion pack membership. Head below for more details and the games now live on the service.

Game Boy Advance Switch Online

As for the Game Boy Advance Switch Online titles, you’re going to need to pay the up-charge on the Expansion Pack membership for those.

  • Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
  • WarioWare Mega Microgames
  • Kuru Kuru
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
