Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. Is a Modern Take on Old Systems

The small handheld device comes with multiple games.

During the 1980s, Nintendo released a series of Game & Watch systems, which were small handheld devices that included one simple game (like Toss-Up or Judge), as well as a clock.

Now, Nintendo is releasing an updated version of the Game & Watch to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of the first Super Mario Bros. video game in 1985.

Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. will allow you to play Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and a Mario-version of “Ball,” one of the games featured in an original Game & Watch system. The system will have a “modern +Control Pad,” as well as a clock.

In addition, in a press release, Nintendo said the Game & Watch will include “35 little touches to discover, including some guest appearances from Mario’s friends and foes.”

The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system will be released on November 13 for $49.99.

This new Game & Watch is one of many games Nintendo is releasing as part of its Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary celebration. For instance, the company also announced Super Mario 3D All-Stars (which contains Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy), and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, which lets you control a real-word kart using your Switch.
