Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros.

Doom is now running on the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros., following some modding work done by YouTuber stacksmashing.

The device was hacked last week, allowing custom code to run. stacksmashing now has the first Doom game running, though some tweaks were made. As it’s a work in progress, some textures were removed and the resolution has been paired back a bit.

Here’s a look at Doom in action:

The new Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. device has a number of secrets hidden inside. On social media yesterday, Nintendo offered a glimpse at some of the little touches that the average user may not be aware of.

Here’s the full roundup:

Nintendo has posted a new online web commercial to publish the upcoming launch of Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. We’ve attached the advert below.

Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. launches worldwide on November 13.

The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system won’t be around forever, but it will be distributed for a few months. Nintendo’s website for the product has updated and says it “will continue to be shipped to retailers through approximately March 31, 2021, and will be available for purchase while supplies last.”

If you’re in North America and are hoping to secure a pre-order, you might be out of luck. The official website no longer has a notice about reservations and instead says Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. will be “releasing November 13th”.

Things are different in Europe where pre-orders have been open for some time. Amazon UK currently has it here for instance. Importing is an option if that’s something you want to pursue.
