The Legend of Zelda 35th Anniversary Game & Watch releases today, and besides including the original NES game, Zelda II, the original Link’s Awakening, and a watch (as advertised!), the unit contains a neat little detail — the green backside, etched with a Triforce, glows a little! (Thanks to @bluejet07 on Twitter for sharing.)



… Okay, it’s barely more than a bullet point you could put on the box, but it’s still pretty cool, given the product is a collector’s item through and through. It’ll look nicer on your shelf this way! This comes alongside some other nifty secrets — such as being able to hold A for five seconds when selecting any play file to start a game with full hearts, and the classic “ZELDA” Second Quest file name for the original game.  There are even special screensavers if the console goes into sleep mode! How nifty.
