Nintendo recently confirmed during yesterday’s Direct livestream that it will finally bring Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance games to Switch Online. Both libraries launched with a selection of games, though more will probably be added over time.
Game Boy and Game Boy Color games will be available with the standard Switch Online subscription, but you’ll have to purchase the Expansion Pack add-on to gain access to the library of Game Boy Advance titles. This add-on is also required to play N64 and Sega games, which costs $49,99 for a normal 12-month membership or $79,99 for a 12-month Family Membership.
