The Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct kicked off celebrations of Mario’s milestone, appropriately, at the very beginning of his career with a new (or old) way to play his debut hit. Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. is a mini gaming device, inspired by the retro G&W systems from the ‘80s, that allows you to play the original Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels in retro style.

The device is designed almost exactly like the classic Game & Watch systems, but also features a modern D-pad so you can control Mario smoothly. As well as the aforementioned games, a special version of the iconic Game & Watch title Ball is included with a Mario-style makeover. In classic G&W fashion, this new product will also feature a clock, and there will be 35 secrets for players to discover in honor of the 35th anniversary.

 

 

Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. will launch on November 13th, retailing at $49.99.

A lifelong Nintendo fan and a longtime editor at Zelda Universe, Reece will forever be grateful that he somehow dodged the Naughty List of Christmas 1998, when Santa delivered the life-changing gift of a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Mario Kart 64. When he's not playing games, Reece is usually reading Punisher comics, delving helplessly into the weirdest depths of anime and manga, or spending time with his cocker spaniel Gracie -- the goodest girl ever!
