You can’t get much more ‘classic’ in the portable gaming realm than Game & Watch can you? Get ready to relive the ’80s on your Nintendo 3DS in this week’s Nintendo Download.
Who doesn’t remember (unless you weren’t born yet) the magical days of ‘playing’ on a tiny LCD screen? The wonderful age of whiling away literal minutes in the back seat of the family car on a 2″ grayscale screen to the soothing sounds of ‘bleep’ and ‘bloop’. Fantastic!
And now you can relive those lazy days of the early 1980’s with Game & Watch Gallery 2 on the 3DS’ Virtual Console! This isn’t a repro of the actual G&W by the way, it’s a rerelease of the Gameboy Color version. Basically that means that you get the original and revised copies of all the games included. (it’s actually pretty neat too)
Oh, and if you’re a Wii owner, you’ll be treated to… *tumbleweed rolls by, wind whistles*
