Nintendo’s E3 presentation wasn’t… great. Granted, this whole E3 season wasn’t phenomenal, but that can easily be attributed to the impact of COVID-19, but all the same, it’s worth repeating that Nintendo’s showing wasn’t exactly filled to the brim with hype: even their trailer for Breath of the Wild 2 seemed a bit… meh?
But before Nintendo failed to wow us with that, they failed to wow us with another Zelda product which was announced a few minutes before that faithful trailer: to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, they’d be releasing… a Game & Watch with the first three games loaded onto it.
...and that’s about it.
Now, that’s not the only thing on offer: they also added a remake of a traditional Game & Watch mini-game, dressed up in new Zelda duds. Plus, there appears to be a rather cool timer and watch app that are both useful and playable. But other than being a neat collectable for diehard fans… not a whole lot to be excited about here.
It’ll be out in November. Maybe it’ll make a fun stocking stuffer for the holidays.
