What is the Game and Watch: The Legend of Zelda and what will it include?

Much like the Super Mario Brothers Game and Watch, which was released in 2020 to celebrate its 35th anniversary, the retro-styled device is a throwback nod to Nintendo's first handheld system.

Beautifully themed in the classic Legend of Zelda colourway, this special tribute to the Hyrule warrior is crafted with a smart golden-coloured case and a 'Link' green frame. And if you're a sucker for packaging, you'll probably want to keep it proudly displayed in it's Triforce emblemed box.

This celebration of the history of The Legend of Zelda will also include a special version of Game & Watch classic Vermin starring Link as the playable character.

The Legend of Zelda-themed interactive digital clock lets you pick up and play whenever you like as Link explores Hyrule. The timer features a Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link battle scene, which allows you to set a timer and see how many enemies you can defeat.
