It’s no secret that Nintendo’s huge again catalog is among the many most untapped troves in trendy gaming. But quickly, it’s about to be rather less untapped, as video games from the Game Boy and Game Boy Color library are apparently slated to affix Nintendo Switch Online, Eurogamer reports.

Nintendo Switch Online—or, because it’s identified by its scientific time period, Game Pass For Really Old Games (GPFROG)—grants gamers entry to greater than 100 video games from the NES and SNES, together with Super Metroid, Super Mario World, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. You additionally want to enroll in the service if you wish to play any, uh, extra trendy video games on-line. A subscription prices $4 a month or $20 per 12 months.

Whispers in regards to the addition of Game Boy video games began swirling earlier this week on an episode of the Nate the Hate podcast. On Tuesday, Nintendo Life, citing its own sources, corroborated the podcast’s report. And then, this morning, Eurogamer corroborated Nintendo Life’s corroboration of the report. So, yeah, it appears fairly seemingly we’ll be enjoying some type of authentic Game Boy video games by way of the Switch as quickly as this month.

That stated, the precise date is unclear. Nintendo didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark from Kotaku.

Adding authentic Game Boy video games to the Switch Online catalog is a pure subsequent step for the service. Originally, it began out with only a handful of NES video games. Over the years, it added extra video games from that platform, after which, in 2019, added a bunch from the SNES. The service turns three years outdated on September 18.

So, by my math, if Nintendo continues to go down the road of its {hardware} chronologically, it’ll solely be…76 extra years till I can play Kirby Air Ride on my Switch. Hey, who is aware of! By then, possibly I’ll be enjoying it on the 4K Switch.
