UPDATE 11/13 9:38AM PT: The Game & Watch is available at Amazon.
The new Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. is now available to purchase for $49.99–or at least it is sometimes. It’s been going in and out of stock at various retailers. We’ll try to keep the updates at the top of the page as up to date as possible, but if you can’t find it there, check all the retailers in the list below. You might just get lucky.
Even if you don’t, all is not lost. From Nintendo’s own website:
“The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system (releasing Nov. 13) will continue to be shipped to retailers through approximately March 31, 2021, and will be available for purchase while supplies last.”
Still, that “while supplies last” piece at the end means you should probably grab one when you can.

A remake of the company’s first handheld gaming devices, this Game & Watch comes with a full-color copy of the 1985 game Super Mario Bros., as well as the sequel, Super Mario Bros. 2: The Lost Levels. It’s a limited-edition product, but it’s in stock now.
Just like an NES controller, the device has a plus-shaped D-pad, as well as A and B buttons. Also included is an updated version of Game & Watch: Ball, the first title in the series. It’s an extremely basic black-and-white juggling game from 1980. The new version has Mario juggling the balls.
The Mario games cover the “game” part of the device, but as its name suggests, it also acts as a clock. It displays the time using a layout that resembles a Mario level, complete with enemies and Mario running around. The trailer says the clock portion contains 35 “little touches to discover.”
It’s unclear how many units Nintendo is manufacturing, but the company is calling it a limited-edition device. If you want it, you’d be better off placing your order sooner rather than later.
