Game Boy Advance - Nintendo Switch Online is an application released for the Nintendo Switch alongside Game Boy - Nintendo Switch Online on February 8, 2023 in the Americas and February 9, 2023 elsewhere, shortly following its announcement in the February 2023 Nintendo Direct. It features a library of Game Boy Advance games and is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership. Multiplayer-compatible games such as Mario Kart: Super Circuit can be played with other Nintendo Switch devices locally or online.[7]
