Tons of classic Game Boy Advance games coming to Nintendo Switch next week

Rapper 50 Cent 'confirms' GTA 6 is on its way by sharing leaked images from 'Vice City' Switch gamers now not only have access to games on Switch, but five other classic consoles as well.

That's thanks to the Nintendo Online+ service, which gives gamers access to retro Nintendo console emulators including the NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Game Boy, and now Game Boy Advance.

Now the Japanese gaming giant has just announced some major Game Boy Advance games for release on the service, including the iconic Metroid Fusion next week.

This iconic entry in the Metroid series was first released 21 years ago in 2002 but will now be playable to next-gen gamers.

Nintendo Life reports that Metroid Fusion will be coming to the Switch Online Game Body Advance library on the 9th March (next Thursday).

Explaining the story of the game to the uninitiated, Nintendo said: "While lending mission support on planet SR388, interstellar bounty hunter Samus Aran is attacked by an X parasite, an organism with the ability to mimic the abilities of any creature it infects.

"Near death, Samus is saved by a vaccine made from the DNA of the last Metroid—the X parasite's only natural predator. When the X spread to a research station in orbit around SR388, a weakened Samus is forced to exterminate them all… or die trying."

This follows the blockbuster release of Metroid Prime Remastered, which dropped on Nintendo Switch in February.

Current GBA titles on Switch Online include Mario Kart: Super Circuit, WarioWare, Super Mario Advance 4, and the Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.

But soon you'll also have access to Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Fire Emblem, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, Golden Sun, and of course, Metroid Fusion.

If you want to play any of the Nintendo emulators on Switch, however, you'll have to subscribe to the company's Switch Online+. It currently costs £34.99 per year and can be bought here.
