In the era of classic revivals, the Game & Watch ‘Super Mario Bros’ handheld game is a blast from the past featuring the original Game & Watch system that was released in 1980 and was the very first handheld gaming console created by Nintendo.
Super Mario Bros 35th Anniversary
To celebrate Super Mario Bros 35th birthday this year, Nintendo has created a classic edition of the Game & Watch handheld with the original Super Mario Bros game in it.
It also retains the original system’s +Control Pad and A/B buttons.
Even more Mario
The handheld also comes with Lost Levels packed in as well as a classic Ball game, one of Nintendo’s major hits, featuring Mario himself.
Fans can also display the handheld as a digital clock with 35 different animations including guest appearances from Mario’s friends and foes.
There’s even an official trailer with more information.
Now available on Amazon.sg
For fans who can’t wait to get their hands on a set, Amazon Singapore is currently selling it at $139 per set with free shipping and warranty included.
However, keep in mind the same handheld has a recommended retail price of ¥5,478 in Japan. That translates to roughly S$70, which means you are still paying for it at an inflated price (yes, even from Amazon) although it is considerably lower compared to absurd prices other local retailers are offering.
Nintendo says they will continue to ship to retailers worldwide till March 2021 but only while supplies last.Buy from Amazon Singapore
