Topic: What gameboy games should they add to NSO?

Posts 1 to 16 of 16


So recently a gameboy emulator for the switch has gotten leaked so that has me wondering.
What game boy games should be added to NSO?
This ranges from the original gameboy to the GBC to the GBA.
To me I want them to add FE the sacred stones LOZ minish cap and maybe Kingdom hearts.



Assuming its on regular NSO, literally every first party game and a solid selection of 3rd party games.

Assuming its on Expansion Pass, literally every first party game and every 3rd party game that isn't a licensed game or on the Castlevania/Mana/whatever else collections already on Switch.

Yes, all of them. They wanted to sell their big online service on old games instead of actual online gaming and they're far more limited in what they can add because they're old games only (and barring a rare indie game here or there, we're not getting any new ones from these systems). I understand there are games no one cares about but they still can't get (not just licensed games) but beyond that, this is what they should do. Especially if this service continues into the next Switch.

I don't really have that many wants for the GB/GBC side of things besides maybe Tetris and Mario Land, but GBA opens the gates quite a bit more:

Mother 3
Superstar Saga
Zero Mission
MK Super Circuit
FF Tactics
Super Mario Advance
Minish Cap
Four Swords (Maybe?)
Amazing Mirror
Golden Sun

And a lot more. GBA has an insane library when you actually look at it.

If you are responding to me in forums or a comment I would much appreciate it if you quoted or tagged me in your responses so I can see it and respond. Otherwise I usually can’t tell that you’ve replied. Thanks! :)


I'd be more excited for Game Boy Advance games coming to the Switch, though I would certainly welcome original Game Boy games with open arms. Here are the GBA games I'd like to see, at least at the top of my head:

Super Mario Advance series (especially SMA4 with all the e-Reader levels)
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Four Swords which came with ALttP would be cool, too)
Metroid Fusion
Metroid: Zero Mission
F-Zero: Maximum Velocity
F-Zero: GP Legend
Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen
Sonic Advance series
Mega Man Battle Network series

A lot of the ones I've mentioned had multiplayer. Those would be perfect for NSO, particularly with multi-pak capabilities. So we would no longer have to have multiple copies of the same game.

Would definitely be up for playing the Terminator 2 game again, despite how easy it was.

I suppose that it should really be Gameboy exclusives (and Tetris), as others will probably be better on another machine



Real talk.

I'd actually consider signing up for an NSO subscription again if Nintendo dropped Deja Vu I & II on there.

Just started thinking and now I think they should add in medabots.



Both Hamtaro: Ham Hams Unite and Ham Ham Heartbreak would fit well if GB/GBA got added to NSO

Pronouns: any

Currently "cruising" through: Nothing! I need stuff to play!

Willing to discuss because of completion (not 100%): Indivisible, Metroid Dread, MiiTopia, Toree 3d/Toree 2, Metroid Dread, BOTW, PPT2, Legends Arceus, Zayzoo: An Earth Adventure
