Rumors have been flying around for the last few weeks stating that some kind of Game Boy and Game Boy Color emulator or even an N64 emulator would be coming to Nintendo Switch in the near future. Today it was confirmed that those rumors were partially true.

During today’s Nintendo Direct, we learned that the N64 emulator and a Sega Genesis emulator will be coming to the hybrid gaming system in the near future as a new subscription-based service.
