Nintendo's Game & Watch series of handheld systems is making a surprise comeback this week, with a brand new Super Mario Bros. edition hitting store shelves tomorrow, but one lucky fan has received theirs ahead of schedule.
YouTube user RG Geek has shared an unboxing video of Nintendo's shiny new toy for all to see, taking it out of its packaging and running through some of the features you'll be able to enjoy when you get your hands on one. You can check it out for yourself above.
As you'd expect, it looks like a pretty lovely little machine that's worth a look for collectors – even if it does come with an unexpected error.
Have you been lucky enough to receive yours early? Have you got one ordered for its launch day tomorrow? Let us know in the comments below.

Looks awesome! It's great to see how it all works with the menu. I will be receiving mine tomorrow.
Just got mine. Really tempted to open it, but it looks so perfect all sealed up
Haven't even been able to pre-order mine Weird that preorders were never available US.
Ordered three so should have mine this weekend or Monday. I intend to open one, possibly hack it - if it's possible - then keep the other two unopened.
Is there a 24-hour option I wonder?
Not exactly, my order from Amazon UK was shipped out yesterday but it won’t get here until the 24th due to international shipping.
@theiRiS The general assumption is that stores in the US didn’t open up preorders in an attempt to combat bots.
Just had a message off Royal Mail mine is due tomorrow afternoon 😀
Mine has been shipped today and will arrive here tomorrow. I can't wait. Something to do between XBOX Series X play sessions.
I’m not watching it I don’t want it spoiled for myself
got a notification that mine is arriving today.
Hopefully I can pick it up tomorrow, together with Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.
Now with more typos 😆
Got my email from EBGames. Heading in to CBD tomorrow to pick it up. 🥳
Not gonna spoil it for myself. Mine is coming tomorrow morning.
Same. I wanted to get one in box and not open it but they never came up for pre-order anywhere I saw (US).
Wow another unboxing video, surely we would be all better off waiting until we get the item for ourselves.
Mine should be here tomorrow morning. I hope so
Yop, got my today, but i am at work and could only look at the Package
Hoping to buy one tomorrow when they go on sale in the US
Lucky fan gets to play Super Mario Bros. early!
In the US here, so, waiting to see what happens when they launch
The NA didn't have preorders it's day of release only.
The bad is that it has not a stand...
Mine is shipping today from Amazon UK. I had ZERO faith in Nintendo of America getting their act together on this one and, well, they didn't get their act together on this one. I'll be opening mine and putting it on a display stand
@Scirocco7 Agreed. I use small cellphone stands for things like this. Even a small stand for tablets works
Watch out Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo is releasing a next generation system killer.
Ordered mine through Nintendo UK site but still showing as awaiting dispatch though the estimated date was yesterday.
Very surprised this doesn't have the classic G&W wire stand. It's a clock! it needed to stand.
Got mine arriving tomorrow - but the stand situation is a bit of a shame.
Mine arrives soon, bizarre it has no stand, it's a clock isn't it? The old ones had little wire stands. Classic Nintendo, 2 steps forward, 1 step back!
Yes, mine is here since Wednesday.
I ordered one from Amazon UK to ship to me in the US. Looking forward to it.
I really want one
Went to change the shipping speed on my Amazon UK pre-order and accidentally cancelled the order. Whoops! Don't submit to scalpers, this product will be made available through March. Best Buy's US listing is working.
Oh look, another electronic item you have to take a vacation from work from to sit at a computer and hit F5 all day in the hopes to attain one. REALLY getting tired of the hoopla to buy any popular electronics lately. WTF??
Received a text advising mine is due in today. Like others here, really surprised they altered the design to remove the stand seen in other G&W models.
Maybe an official stand will be released for more ££££!!
This looks like a handy display stand that compliments the color scheme of the Game and Watch: https://www.amazon.com/Tripar-4-Metal-Gold-Square-Wire-Stand-Platter-Stand-Easel-Display/dp/B006M1GZIW/ref=cm_wl_huc_item
It's a shame Nintendo isn't selling an official one.
Live in NZ so got mine earlier today (it’s 10pm here now) and am sorry to say I am disappointed. Unit is very light, was expecting it to be heavy like the originals and no little stand on the back to allow it to stand up on display.
