  • Nintendo Switch Online adds 5 Mega Man Game Boy classics, expanding Game Boy lineup.
  • Mega Man titles on Nintendo Switch Online offer a retro experience for fans looking to explore origins of the series.
  • Nintendo steadily filling gaps by adding Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance titles to its impressive collection.

Nintendo Switch Online players now have new classics to play, as five Mega Man titles from the Game Boy have been added to the subscription service. With more than 100 titles and counting from the NES, SNES, Game Boy, and Nintendo 64, Nintendo Switch Online is one of the best platforms to get retro games, and these new additions are just extra reasons to sign up, especially for diehard Mega Man fans.

Before the inclusion of these Mega Man games, there were only 26 Game Boy titles available on Nintendo Switch Online. Most of them were classic Nintendo IPs, with a good chunk of them being Mario games, a few classic Legend of Zelda titles, then token PokemonCastlevaniaMetroid, and Kirby entries. Five Mega Man games definitely go a long way in expanding the diversity of options available for the Game Boy section of the service.

The five Mega Man titles added to Nintendo Switch Online are Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (1991), which is the first entry in the series on the Game Boy; Mega Man II (1991), Mega Man III (1992), Mega Man IV (1993), and Mega Man V (1994). They’re the first five games in the Game Boy series of the franchise, which combine elements of their various NES and SNES mainline counterparts. These highly acclaimed Mega Man games are a good way for those looking to go back to or even discover the origins of the story.

To further entice players who want a retro experience, Nintendo Switch Online is always adding classic games to the collection. Those who missed out on old titles, especially from iconic franchises like Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, have plenty to catch up on or relive from the glory days of the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s via Nintendo Switch Online.

After originally only adding games from the NES and SNES in its initial offering, it seems as though Nintendo Switch Online is trying to fill its gaps as much as possible. From the looks of it, Nintendo is steadily adding more Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance titles over time, rounding out the retro experience further. With an abundance of iconic games from these platforms yet to be added, it’s safe to assume that even more will come to be rediscovered by today’s gamers.
