Nintendo Switch Online: Game Boy and Game Boy Color games coming soon, other confirmations

Nintendo Switch Online may soon offer Game Boy and Game Boy Color games to subscribers, according to another confirmation of the recent rumor.

Nintendo Switch Online seems destined to also offer Game Boy and Game Boy Color games to subscribers, according to another confirmation of the rumor that is added to the various others that have emerged so far, further corroborating the hypothesis of this interesting additional bonus on Nintendo Switch .

For some time now there has been talk (and hopefully, more than anything else) of an increase in platforms expected with regard to the catalog of classic games offered for free to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers from month to month, and apparently the arrival is near. of Game Boy and Game Boy Color, considering that the information is also confirmed in these hours by, based on an unidentified “source” close to the matter.

The inclusion of the Game Boy and GB Color games had already emerged a few days ago, starting with the insider Nate the Hate and also supported by Nintendo Life, now therefore a third source is added to the chorus, which begins to become convincing.
