Retroarch for Xbox Series X/S Has several Gameboy/Color cores included in it. The Sameboy and Gambatte cores are the ones worth your time to use and enjoy. Gameboy emulation on Xbox is fantastic and with Link Cable functionality, you can get everything you could want out of it! In this video, I will take you through the steps to get Gameboy emulation running on the Xbox Series X/S with Retroarch!
