It appears that Nintendo plans to bring Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games to Nintendo Switch Online according to a new leak (Thanks, @Trash_Bandatcoot). The leak includes the Game Boy Advance emulator titled ‘Sloop’ and Game Boy emulator titled ‘Hiyoko’ for Switch. Both of the aforementioned emulators were developed by NERD (Nintendo European Research & Development). NERD is also responsible for developing the emulators found in Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
Games supported on the service are best left up to speculation. However, the emulators are all but confirmed by Nintendo as users were able to test it out with relative success. Images of the emulator in testing are available here. Summer is approaching with the possibility of a Nintendo Direct, which could see new additions to Nintendo Switch Online. Hopefully, Nintendo impresses with a great lineup of Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games for subscribers.
