During Nintendo's E3 Nintendo Direct we got word of a few Zelda game bits most notably Breath of the Wild 2 is coming next year and Nintendo will release a Zelda game and watch this November. If you remember I picked up the Super Mario Bros. Game and Watch and love it. Do I have Super Mario Bros. already? Yeah, yeah of course, but it's fun to get old games in new forms and I never had the old Mario Game and Watch so why not this one? Apparently Nintendo wanted to do one better in that the Zelda Game and Watch which seems to take the original concept and kick up a few notches. Not only does it come with The Legend of Zelda but also The Adventure of Link and the original Link's Awakening. This is an incredible lineup and surprising as I really only expected The Legend of Zelda would be present. Including three classic games raises the value of this but they are keeping the price tag firm at $50.

Many of the pre-orders are all sold out but I hope Nintendo re stocks these as everyone that wants one should really be able to buy it without going through resellers.


"Play The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Game Boy Version), and a special Game & Watch edition of VERMIN (Link Version)! It also has a playable clock and timer!"

I just found a news article about where you can pre-order it, which is Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop. I'm not sure if you knew about all of these pre-order options, so I thought I'd share. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/where-to-preorder-game-watch-the-legend-of-zelda/1100-6492953/

I got one preordered at Best Buy. Easier to get than Metroid Dread CE & Amiibo.

What is "CE?" I only saw "Metroid Dread." Is "CE" what they're calling the "Special Edition?" I looked it up, briefly, but I didn't find the answer I was looking for. I just saw it's name, but I didn't quite see a mention of what "CE" stands for or what makes it different than "Metroid Dread." Looking it at makes me miss amiibos.

Greg-- CE basically always means Collectors Edition. Interchangeable with Special Edition or whatever usually

Ah that makes sense. Thanks! I didn't think about that.
