WP7 to feature Gameboy emulator [Homebrew]

You could well have Pikachu following Ash around Pallet Town soon enough with the actively developed project Wario's Jewels 7 (WJ7), the first Windows Phone 7 Gameboy emulator. XDA Developers Forum member Badcam3 (opens in new tab) is collaborating with other developers including Samuel Blanchard to turn this idea into reality.

We know Microsoft doesn't play ball with emulators in the Marketplace (for a good number of reasons), but this is the first sign of light for the homebrew community.

  • WOW! A MUST HAVE! :-)
  • so will this NOT be available to NONE homebrew WP's ?
  • I hope the emulator turns out well.
  • You know, I love WP7 for what it is, I really have not found a reason why I'd NEED to unlock my device for the time I have had it.I guess I have a reason to, Get me a nice SNES, N64 emulator and I'd be all over this.
