I skipped on buying the Mario Game & Watch but I might consider buying this one as Zelda is my favorite video game series and this has a lot more variety to offer at the same price. I also would love to own a newer physical copy of the original Zelda. I have the original Zelda on the NES from when I was a kid but I don't have a compatible TV for it and I have Switch Online to play it for free but I would like to have a newer permanent physical copy. Zelda II and Link's Awakening I already own on GBA and GBC but I'm glad to see they're included too. Link's Awakening is one of my favorite Zelda games.

I kinda wish it included the Zelda game and watch but I understand why they didn't include it (with the whole two screens thing). This still seems really cool though, might end up getting it.

It's not a proper Game & Watch, which worked by having different lights turn off and on. This is just a portable version of one of those plug and play devices, dressed as a Game & Watch.

If this didn't have the green-tinted original GB Link's Awakening, I wouldn't be as interested as I am since I can play Zelda 1 and 2 on my GB Micro anytime.

Don't care for the Mario one but I'll probably buy this one for Link's Awakening alone. It'll be the first time I check out the original since the last two times I owned this for the Game Boy Color & Game Boy Advance, it was the DX version.

Zelda 2 should be interesting since I never did go far with that game when I had that Gamecube collection disc.

The Super Mario Bros Game and watch was kinda neat, they got to be pretty cheap at one point and I ended up buying a bunch and gifting them. I'll get the Zelda one if anything just to give my coworkers something else to play with while in my office..
