Nintendo to Add Game Boy, Game Boy Color Library to Switch, Sources Claim

But how far away is it?

Where would Nintendo be without the Game Boy? Certainly not where they are today. And if sources are to be believed, they're finally bringing the handheld gaming generation onto the Nintendo Switch.

Recent reports are indicating that Nintendo intends to launch a Game Boy and Game Boy Color library onto the Nintendo Switch console. Like the NES and SNES library, this would be a digital collection of retro titles for the respective consoles. Earlier this week, Nintendo Life claimed that they had sources confirming this upcoming plan, which was then corroborated by Eurogamer.

When the Nintendo Switch Online service initially launched, it came with access to the NES Library, a digital collection of classic NES games playable on the portable console. Over time, more titles were added to the library, eventually leading to the launch of the SNES library. Now that a majority of the most popular SNES and NES titles have been added to the collection, dipping into their other classic consoles is a great way to reintroduce life into the service. While we dont expect to see third party titles like Pokémon (though it's possible) we absolutely expect to see some classic games like Super Mario Land, Wario Land, and Links Awakening.

Its important to note, however, that Nintendo has NOT confirmed any of this. As such, we dont know for absolute certain that it will happen. Or even WHEN it will happen, once it does actually happen. It was several months before the SNES library leaked before it was launched, so if we had to guess, itll release some time in July of 2022.
