Nintendo lifted the lid on one new level of Switch Online retro offer this week. The new ‘Expansion Pack’ will consist of a “collection” of Nintendo 64 and Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) titles.
So what about them rumors of handheld systems to Nintendo’s online service? Although there are no signs of them, Eurogamer’s news editor Tom Phillips has now shared a bit of a update on Twitter – suggesting that Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles are still on the way.
“N64 and Mega Drive were the two NSO platforms I had heard about with Game Boy / Color. I can imagine N64 / Mega Drive being rolled out first, as they are more enticing things to get people to upgrade . “
Phillips admits in a follow-up statement that he is not sure whether these particular systems will be part of “higher pricing”, but known insider ‘NateDrake’ seems to think Game Game and Game Boy Color games will be part of the “current” membership.
“I expect Game Boy and Game Boy Color to be part of the current Nintendo Switch Online service, and they [Nintendo] did not want to unite the two. “
Earlier this month on “Nate the Hate” podcast, the same insider said that Nintendo 64 games would come to Switch Online along with one “higher price” subscription level, and Nintendo confirmed this information earlier this week during its live presentation.
Eurogamer also backed up our own comments and NateDrake’s in the past Game Boy and Game Boy Color games come to the Switch Online service.
