During today’s Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Direct, Nintendo pulled back the curtain on something exceptionally cool: a new Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.! This iteration of the iconic handheld comes with copies of Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels along with quite a few changes and tweaks in tow. Take a gander:

Here’s how Nintendo describes the device:

This new collectable [sic] device is inspired by the original Game & Watch systems first released in 1980. The original handheld device included a game, and could also be used as a watch to tell time. The original Game & Watch series sold more than 43 million worldwide. Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. features a modern +Control Pad. In addition to playing classic games Super Mario Bros.Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels (released in Japan as Super Mario Bros. 2) and a special version of Ball with a Mario makeover, Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. also functions as a clock, with 35 little touches to discover, including some guest appearances from Mario’s friends and foes. Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. launches on Nov. 13 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

It’s a gorgeous and fun way of celebrating not just 35 years of Super Mario Bros., but also the Game & Watch line’s own 40th anniversary. Preorders are not quite live for the device, but follow this link for more information. We’ll update this story as soon as we learn more as we race to its November 13 launch date. Keep in mind that Nintendo won’t be making many of these, just like the upcoming Super Mario 3D All-Stars collection, so act fast once preorders do go live.
