Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. released back in November to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario and the 40th anniversary of Game & Watch. It contained Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and Ball, and I definitely had to pick one up.
The packaging was fantastic. It comes in a cardboard box with a clear plastic sleeve. At the top of the post, you can see how it arrives in packaging. Directly above this paragraph, you can see it without the plastic sleeve. The cardboard box is the classic design for Ball, but the sleeve transforms it into Super Mario Bros. Pretty cool!
The screen is bright and beautiful. You can swap between the three games at any time, and you pick up right where you left off. It also keeps your high scores of course. I played through Super Mario Bros. both normal and hard modes because I just had to play it again. I’m still working on The Lost Levels. I’m avoiding warp pipes so I can unlock World 9. I’ve never seen the Worlds A through D either!
And you know what else I see? There’s a Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda coming in November! Anyone else going to pick that one up like I am?
