If you missed out on Nintendo Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda Edition preorders, it’s not too late. You can still get your hands on this absolutely delightful collectible from Nintendo, for yourself or as a gift for the holidays.
In my Game & Watch: Legend of Zelda review, I pretty much gush over it the entire time. It’s exactly the sort of collectible that appeals to me: it’s not terribly expensive, it has cool and interesting features, and it just feels like a loving tribute rather than a cheap cash grab.
Preorder the Nintendo Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda Edition
As stated in the product description, the Nintendo Game & Watch Legend of Zelda edition includes the first two NES games, the Game Boy version of Link’s Awakening, and a reimagined version of Vermin starring Link.
You can also play “the English or Japanese versions” of the included games. There are some notable musical differences between the Japanese and English versions of both Zelda and Zelda II, with the Japanese music and sound effects being much better thanks to the Famicom Disk System having better sound hardware than the NES.
In addition to just looking cool, the Zelda Game & Watch comes in a box you can use as a display case, something the Super Mario Game & Watch lacked.
The Zelda Game & Watch released November 12 and you can get it right now.
