Nintendo is leaning hard into nostalgia this year, and its latest retro gadget takes it all the way back to 1980. Well, you're going to have to play the game to find out.
Now Game & Watch is drawing attention.
Nintendo Switch owners will get the chance to play three of the most critically acclaimed, and beloved titles in the Super Mario Bros. series, when Super Mario 3D All-Stars finally becomes avaialable this Friday; bringing with it Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. Meanwhile, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels was released in Japan as the Super Mario Bros. 2. Nintendo America has shared a new eight-minute video in which we can see the main menu for the first time, but also more video game footage. While built is reminiscent of the original version, except for the plus-shaped directional pad that first came out in the 1989 Zelda game, the 2020 sports a lot of great features that will appeal to the younger generation. Its success also gave some legitimacy to handheld gaming, which was a niche that video game manufacturers were unsure of in the 1970s.
The 40th Anniversary edition of the Nintendo Game & Watch will hit stores on November 13th.
The company has been shed tears of its recent relaunch. Now Nintendo is in full celebration mode.
While many Nintendo fans were understandably excited for the announcement of the Nintendo Switch title - which compiles classic releases Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy - some have been left frustrated by its "limited time" release, which implies that the triple-pack will only be available for purchase, both physically and digitally, between September 16 and March 31.
Now it's Game & Watch's turn in the spotlight.
