Get the Nintendo The Legend of Zelda game and watch it before the holidays

If you missed the Nintendo Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda Edition pre-orders, 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 rave about it all the time. It’s exactly the kind of collectible that appeals to me: it’s not terribly expensive, it has some cool and interesting features, and it feels more like a loving tribute than a grab for cheap cash. .

GameStop has renewed its stock of Zelda Game & Watch consoles for the Black Friday/Cyber ​​Monday shopping season.

As noted 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 revamped version of Vermin featuring Link.

You can also play “English or Japanese versions” of the included games. There are notable musical differences between the Japanese and English versions of Zelda and Zelda II, with the Japanese music and sound effects being much better thanks to the Famicom Disk System having better audio hardware than the NES.

Besides looking cool, the Zelda Game & Watch comes in a box that you can use as a display case, which the Super Mario Game & Watch lacked.

The Zelda Game & Watch was released on November 12 and you can get it now.
