Nintendo has announced a new Zelda-themed Game and Watch system which includes three classic Zelda games.
In case you didn’t know, 2021 is the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, and to celebrate, Nintendo has created a new handheld Game and Watch system jam-packed with Zelda goodness. The system includes four games which are the original Legend of Zelda, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, the GameBoy version of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and the classic Game and Watch game Vermin, although this version of the game has Link as the playable character.
In regards to the “watch” part of the Game and Watch, also included is a playable clock themed around The Legend of Zelda as well as an interactive stopwatch themed after Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link.
The system will be made available on November 12th, although it isn’t specified where you can actually buy it. If this system is anything like Nintendo’s other retro offerings, expect this new Zelda-themed Game and Watch to be in very limited quantities. Make sure you mark the date on your calendar if you’d really like to own one.
In case you missed Nintendo’s E3 Direct earlier today, a bunch of new Zelda content was announced, including the first wave of DLC content heading to Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as well as a new trailer and rough release date for the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
While a specific release date wasn’t announced for Breath of the Wild 2, the game is expected to launch at some point in 2022. Seeing as though the game is likely going to be Nintendo’s biggest release of the year, it’s a safe bet to assume it will launch during the holiday period.
Also announced was a new WarioWare game, A Nintendo Switch version of Square Enix’s Guardians of the Galaxy game, a new 2D Metroid game called Metroid Dread, and news that Kazuya from Tekken is the next fighter coming to Smash Bros Ultimate.
