If you’re an iOS user, gamer, and 1990’s nostalgist, you should know that there’s a new emulator in the works that’s just for you. iOS developer Riley Testut, known for creating ‘GBA4iOS’, has teased an emulator dubbed ‘Delta’.
Testut announced the impending arrival of Delta in a tweet yesterday:
Goodbye GBA4iOS. Hello, Delta. https://t.co/If4W92MMmf

If you enter the Delta teaser website, you’ll be able to just make out the hazy outlines of controllers for the Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64, along with a blurred Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color. The website suggests that the new emulator will debut sometime next year. As Testut’s tweet suggests, Delta will likely be an emulator for iOS that will replace GBA4iOS.
GBA4iOS was a huge hit, in large part due to its ease of installment. Users simply needed to reset their iOS device dates back to 2012 to use the emulator without jailbreaking their iPhone or iPad. It came with a built-in web browser that users could navigate to install and play old school Game Boy games, including classics such as Super Mario Kart, Zelda, and Pokemon, right on their iOS device of choice. It also came with other nifty features such as new controller skins, multiplayer support, cheat codes, and Dropbox support.
That beloved emulator was eventually shut down when Nintendo filed a takedown request against the app under the auspices of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in 2014.
