    Considered by many to be the most accurate Game Boy Advance emulator, mGBA will soon be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. The official Twitter account for the emulator teased their homebrew running through preexisting versions on the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita, alongside a Nintendo Switch, with the tagline of "mGBA does what Nintendon't." The developer is new to Switch homebrew, but is working on creating a standalone version. No release date window was given, nor any specifics, but it'll be the third major GBA emulator on the Switch, joining VBA-next and gdkGBA, as well as methods available through RetroArch.

    I think the others are "workable" and run perfectly fine, but if you want like absolute accurate emulation, mGBA is supposed to be the "best".

    Straight trolling are ya?

    Can we run gb/GBC games on vba-next? Haven't tried yet. Either way, mGBA seeing an official release outside of the mess that is RetroNX is great. Yeah, I said it.

    I tried a method of converting a .gbc game to a .gba game. Audio glitches were out of this world.

    That's why I love mGBA.. It performs admirably well, and is the one stop shop for all gameboy games.

    I actually don't like any AIO emulator setup. Just personal preference.
