There is one bright beam of light in 2020 and that is Nintendo. They are bringing back the original hand held game system Game & Watch. This new updated version will have the fun and games of the original, along with some retro goodness in the form of Super Mario Brothers and included the lost levels as a bonus. It is available for preorders overseas in the UK and Japan, but nothing yet for us in the US. However, it will release November 13th in stores and the price will be $50. This looks to be the stocking stuffer of the year.
Available – November 13th 2020
Retail – $49.99
A new look for a classic device
The original Game & Watch device came out in Japan in 1980 and was the first handheld gaming system created by Nintendo. Now you can get your hands on a new piece of history with a special Game & Watch that includes the original Super Mario Bros. game, a digital clock, and more.
