For Nintendo, The Switch has brought immense success. In a recent report, the latest earnings were revealed that Nintendo had “sold around 89 million Switch consoles since its 2017 launch”. This roughly translates to Nintendo selling 13.5 million Wii U consoles in a span of seven years.
The Switch even now only has a few classic titles. Meanwhile, a Switch Online membership provides access to “over 100 NES and SNES games”. While all of Nintendo’s other classic old-school consoles seems to be missing, rumour has it that Game Boy might make it appearance on Switch soon.
The Switch hence made history by being one of Nintendo’s most successful consoles ever. Ranging from Breath of the Wild to Super Mario Odyssey, the Switch has some impressive titles. However, it would be wrong to overlook the issues that bother the performance of the Switch.
With Game Boy coming to the Switch, fans are feeling nostalgic as they get a chance to walk down memory lane.
Two years later, the other emulators are still unused, but that might not be the case for much longer. NateDrake believes that Nintendo will use one of these emulators for Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. If Hiyoko is for Game Boy, Count could be for Game Boy Advance or N64.
Back in 2019, a group of data miners discovered four emulator types while digging through code on the Switch. Kachikachi was associated with NES, and Canoe was associated with SNES, but there were two unused emulators as well. Nintendo called one Hiyoko and the other Count.
A single conversation on a podcast isn’t especially compelling proof, but there’s more. Shortly after Nate published the episode, Nintendo Life shared its own report corroborating that leak. Sources tell Nintendo Life that Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles are probably coming to the Nintendo Switch Online service “really soon.” Unfortunately, they didn’t offer more details.
We remain mystified about Nintendo’s unwillingness to give us access to its classic games. Even if Nintendo decided to sell them for $5 or $10 a pop on the eShop, fans would rush to buy them. Instead, we get a drip-feed approach that includes sporadic additions to the Switch Online service and occasional remasters such as Skyward Sword HD or Advance Wars 1+2. Perhaps Nintendo has something much more substantial in the works, but in the meantime, it would be incredible to play Pokemon Red and Super Mario Land on Switch.
