Gameboy Buy Online
I'm not sure I get what you are saying? You think they couldn't handle a broad classic games library? It's just a couple Gigs of Roms basically, sure, they need to test them on their emulation, and it would probably take a fair bit of time and effort, but other than that ... the new online features would go away, for sure, but to me that seems like a fair trade-off.

While I don't know what I want, I do stand by my momentary wish for a more Game-Pass-like service, that is focused on games, and does not mix up it priorities with online 'features'. Nintendo has enough content to support such a service. If anyone ... it's them. They could do it, too, for sure!
I don't know why they have seperate Japanese and North America NES games, just put all of them together without forcing us to make a separate account. At first I was baffled that an untranslated Puyo Puyo 2 was released on the NA SNES online but then I played it for hours and was glad it was there.
And now...??? We are not selling the games anymore. Nope. What we do now is blatantly sell you the chance to play them online on your console from our servers. And we are gonna sell you a wireless SNES controller to give you the illusion that you are getting the better end of the stick here, kiddo.
See the "evolution" here? From actually getting something worth of your money, we have arrived at this point where they are not selling you Super Mario World for the fifth time. They are granting you the privilege of playing it online. If they feel like pulling the game from the servers, you are screwed.
I tried the online thing for a week. It was fun, original Mario Kart is still class, and I enjoyed a run through Mario bros. 3, but I don't want a rolling subscription. It didn't capture my heart the same as way back. For once, genuinely, it's not you, it's me.
The problem is, does that add value to you personally?Are these games, games you would want to go out of your way to play?Will wanting to play them entice you to purchase the online subscription?
I would have purchased the good snes games, like I did on 3ds and Wii. I should be allowed to play these games I bought twice already on switch. When I feel like Nintendo is stealing off me, I have no qualms with playing backups of games I own, on a hacked mini console. No online subscription required.
@Chapapa Sometimes we don't want to have to drag all of our stuff out when we want to play something, and sometimes it's not worth $90 to buy a semi-rare game I don't have. I'm already paying $20 a month for online, why not pay $50 to be able to play all my favorite N64 games without having to go into basement and drag out an N64. I have four consoles hooked up already.
So happy they announced gameboy advance games right after, i was already counting it out until next year.. phew. One of the things i was looking foward to was if they made something like gba joy cons but guess they would have to size a new mold o well. im really going to have my eyes on that annual pokemon day presentation now
I already set my online+expansion not to renew when it's scheduled in March, and this decision vindicates it! I'm offended the GBA games are behind the expansion pass, so I won't be indulging. At best I'll probably get the base subscription after a few months. It's actually so easy to pull out my GBA games and play them on the DS.
@Chapapa I have 20 (NES, SNES, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, PS3, PS5, Xbox, Xbox 360, Series X, Wii, Gamecube (gba player), N64, WiiU NA, WiiU JPN, Switch, NEOGeo, PSVitaTV and PC) plus (Gameboy Color, DS Lite, 3DS NA, 3DSJPN, PSP, Vita) systems hooked up across 2 tvs in the same room. As much as I love my original setup it is annoying digging though my library for games and depending on the system (handhelds mostly) inconvenient to play. For a modest sum I can access many of my favorites easily and with little hassle when I'm really just paying for online access and cloud saves. Same reason I buy remakes or digital versions of games I already own. Or use game pass to install games I own rather than looking for the disk. Convenience. Gaming at the end of the day is a luxury hobby, people pay for what matches their sense of convenience and sensibilities. Just because it doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean that there isn't value to be found for others.

For North America, PAL, and South Korea markets, Nintendo publishes the original NTSC-U versions, retaining their North American naming and 60 Hz support. The Japanese Family Computer variant is used in Japan and Hong Kong. Many games that originally supported local multiplayer now additionally support online multiplayer. Some NES and SNES games also have an alternative version labeled "SP" ("Extra" in some regions) which alters the game in some way, typically either unlocking additional modes, starting the player with additional items or levels, or starting the player midway through the game.

In a briefing, Nintendo said Nintendo Switch Online and its Expansion Pack will be improved and expanded on in the future, with the confirmation of new titles amid rumors of Game Boy games releasing for Switch at some point. Nintendo Switch Online is required for online multiplayer functionality in Switch games, but subscribers also receive access to games from retro Nintendo systems.
The addition of Game Boy games to Nintendo Switch Online or its Expansion Pack seems like a natural fit. If Nintendo can get Pokémon Red and Blue, and perhaps even Pokémon Gold and Silver, on its subscription service with online functionality, those classics alone would be a large draw. That's not to say the rest of the Game Boy library is inferior - the handheld hardware line is home to many iconic first- and third-party titles - but the appeal of retro Pokémon games on Nintendo Switch Online would be high. That would especially be the case if they were made compatible with Pokémon Home, like the versions on the 3DS Virtual Console.
Well that would require GC being added to NSO. Not sure that's gonna happen. Definitely not this gen. Maybe in a few years on Switch 2, but I think more likely they'll just port more GC games to Switch and the next-gen. I mean it'd be awesome if we get GC on NSO in a few years but I'm not counting on it. I feel like they would increase the price of Expansion Pack though if they added GC, cuz its already such a great deal with NES, SNES, N64, GB, GBA, and Genesis along with online play of current games and online friend play on those retro games, especially once they get the libraries of all those systems built out. It's hard to imagine they would add another system and one as modern as the GC without upping the price. Anyway, more to the point, yea it'd be super awesome to get FzeroGX on Switch or next-gen either on NSO or as an HD port. 041b061a72
