Rumor: Nintendo Switch Online may join N64 Game Boy games

Back in the days of the Nintendo 64, some N64 and Game Boy games: Transfer Pak was an official way to transfer data between the N64. With it, you can connect some of your games to exchange data and unlock other goodies.

Yesterday, a rumor surfaced that GBA games would be available on Nintendo Switch Online. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard this rumor, but this time the evidence presented was largely indisputable. The information not only showed a GBA emulator running on the Nintendo Switch, but also indicated that Game Boy and GBC games would also make the leap to the Nintendo Switch Online service. This brings us to the present day, where we now have a rumor upon a rumor!

Well-known leaker and insider Emily Rogers has once again shared details about Nintendo’s next steps. This time around, Emily said that Nintendo is actually testing the way the N64 Transfer Pak functionality is offered through the N64 and Game Boy game functionality via the NSO. Obviously, you won’t need any props for this to work this time, as the magic will be handled by software rather than hardware. Pokémon Stadium was probably the biggest game to use this feature, which lets you transfer your Pokémon from Game Boy games to the N64. Pokémon Stadium has yet to be added to Nintendo Switch Online, nor has it ever been released on any Nintendo Virtual Console service. That said, Emily has heard rumors that Pokémon Stadium will be tested, as well as Transfer Pak connectivity.

In addition to Emily, dataminer Luigiblade has confirmed that the current Nintendo Switch Online app Transfer Pak for the N64 refers to the N64. The source code mentions the ability to enable and disable Transfer Pak N64, but no specific mention of games was found. In other words, it’s not 100% proof that this is all happening, but it lends even more credence to Emily’s claims.
