As part of the Super Mario Bros 35th Anniversary Nintendo released this year’s must-have collectors item, the Super Mario Bros Game and Watch.

The original Game and Watch was invented by the man who would go on to create Game Boy and Metroid, the late Gunpai Yokoi. It was designed as a simple electronic game for older executives to pass the time during their commute on mass transit. Unlike the Game Boy, each Game and Watch was a standalone handheld, and while games were not interchangeable they would work as soon as you pulled them out of the box and put some batteries in them. Many games would get released on the platform, and the handheld’s main character would later receive immortality when they re-appeared in Super Smash Bros Melee as the final unlockable character.

It is a standalone gaming handheld that shipped preloaded with the first two l Super Mario Bros games, as well as a clock and Ball game. We were lucky enough to get one of these at launch and here’s our unboxing of it in glorious 4K UHD.

Seriously who else is hoping Nintendo might consider a Legend of Zelda version of this?
