Nintendo has released a new trailer for the upcoming retro wearable Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., which takes a closer look at the benefits of combining a console and a watch. Players who used systems from the Japanese manufacturer in the 80s and 90s will remember this. The equally popular Game Boy predecessor only offered one main game at the time and could be used as a pocket watch as well.
Despite the nostalgia factor: color display, D-pad and USB-C are included
The current new edition also includes The Lost Levels and a special Mario version of the classic Ball, but focuses on the Super Mario Bros. title. With the new Game & Watch, Nintendo is optically based on the old (New) Wide Screen series, produced between 1981 and 1991. However, as the retro portable console shows more closely, Nintendo is betting this year on a more color screen. large and on the integration of a control pad. The built-in battery can also be charged via USB-C.
After more than ten years, the Game & Watch series with a mobile edition of the game Mario the Juggler was discontinued in October 1991 after a total of 56 versions. More than 40 million copies were sold during this period. The current handheld revival coincides with the 35th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., which is why Nintendo will likely only sell the game-watch combo in a limited edition. The new Game & Watch will be available in stores starting November 13 for around US $ 50. It is not yet clear whether other such systems are planned in the future.
