Nintendo might add Gameboy titles to Nintendo Switch Online service

In a recent report by Nintendolife, the Japanese game development studio might be working on re-releasing legacy titles. September marks the month of the annual Nintendo Direct showcase. This event could reveal fantastic news for Switch fans the world over. Gameboy already contains a range of amazing titles that Switch users will surely love, including prominent legacy titles like Pokemon, Mario, Tetris, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, and many more.

This will indeed be a great addition to the paid online service, as it will add even more value to the subscription. Fans were anticipating the addition of Nintendo 64 instead of Gameboy. The online service already offers over 100 titles and the list is expected to grow even more with the inclusion of a third device.

It looks like Gameboy Advance is going to be ignored for the time being. The online service originally contained only two devices and now it is going to see another addition. Classic titles have their own special nostalgia and this service helps the newer audience to experience the legacy titles. It is indeed a great idea to expand the roster of titles as the online subscription-only comes at the cheap price of $20 annually.

However, Nintendo should also take Gameboy Advance’s popularity into account as it contains even more promising games. This will only make the online service even more lucrative, but sadly, it does not seem like it’s going to happen anytime soon.
