GBA4iOS Developer Teases Launch of New SNES and Game Boy Emulator Called Delta

Developer Riley Testut, the brains behind a Game Boy emulator for iOS called GBA4iOS, said on Twitter yesterday that he is now focusing his energies on a brand new software designed to emulate the hardware of popular SNES, Game Boy and Nintendo 64 consoles. He’s calling it Delta and it’s launching this December in beta although a teaser website does not reveal if this will be an app that you’ll be able to sideload onto an iOS device without jailbreaking.

Visiting the website currently displays no information aside from blurry images of controllers for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Nintendo 64 as well as photos of the Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color consoles.

Twitter user Dario Sepulveda responded to Testut’s tweet by confirming he had seen an early version of the forthcoming emulator, saying “it’s going to be amazing”. Many other Twitter commenters have said the same. “Riley showed me an early build months ago at WWDC and let me tell you, y’all are gonna be amazed,” another commenter wrote.

Do note that while Delta might be able to let you emulate and play games from Game Boy and SNES on your iOS device, you are still required to have the original ROMs of the game.
