Nintendo is releasing a special version of its original Game & Watch handheld to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo is going vintage to celebrate 35 years of Super Mario Bros. The company is releasing a modern take of its original Game & Watch handheld with its 4 direction control pad, and A/B buttons, that has been upgraded with a full-color LCD screen,
The Nintendo Game & Watch was a series of handheld electronic games developed, manufactured, released and marketed by Nintendo from 1980 to 1991.
With this special anniversary edition, the handheld can play Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2), and an updated version of Game & Watch: Ball that stars Mario (instead of Mr. Game & Watch). “Ball” has a simple objective: using the Game & Watch’s two buttons to help a juggler keep two balls in the air.
Like the original Game & Watch, this edition also functions as a digital clock, hence the name. The game also includes 35 “little touches” and Easter eggs to celebrate the milestone anniversary.
The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. handheld will be released on November 13th in “limited production” for $49.99.
