  • Feature How Switch Brings Back Game Boy Multiplayer Memories

    A link (cable) to the past

    Quite apart from the huge number of great games coming to the system every week, one result of Switch’s success that we’ve really enjoyed is how it has brought back a focus on local multiplayer gaming not seen since the N64 days.
