Nintendo Decides to Take Down GBA4iOS Emulator, Why?

By   /   May 15, 2014

Nintendo has issued a notice to shut down the GBA4iOS Emulator, which was made specifically for the iOS to run the classic Game Boy Advance titles.

This announcement was made by the creator of the emulator Riley Testut on his twitter account, where he wrote:


He also mentioned that his emulator was going to reach the 10 Million downloads mark in just a week but it won’t be happening now.


Some of the people are claiming that this action is taken by Nintendo to bring their own special emulator on the iOS devices, which will do the same thing as GBA4iOS.

The emulator was under use for more than three years and this taking down of the app all of a sudden is a huge surprise, but we are hoping that Nintendo will reveal the reasons behind it in the coming days.
