During Nintendo's E3 2021 Direct we got a lot of exciting new information regarding upcoming Nintendo Switch games. We also learned that a new Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda device is coming out this November. Luckily for us Zelda fans, it's already available for preorder.

For anyone that might not know, the Game & Watch played a very important part in making Nintendo a household name in the gaming world. So, this is truly a special collector's item. By the way, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 preorders are also currently available.

This nifty little device has a backlit screen and a charging port. When you're not playing, you can set it up and use it like a watch. Players get three Zelda classics and a remixed version of the retro game Vermin, but with Link's head. The classics it includes are:

  • The Legend of Zelda (NES)
  • The Legend of Zelda 2: Adventure of Link (NES)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Game Boy)

I purchased the Game & Watch Super Mario Bros. device when it came out last year and I absolutely love it. It's small and provides a lot of color on that backlit screen. I'm a huge Nintendo lover, so it occupies a special place on my display shelf. I can't wait to add The Legend of Zelda version to it.
