Nintendo fans around in the 1980s will remember the gaming giant's original handheld console, the Game & Watch. If you weren't tuned in (or not of gaming age), the clue is literally in the name – it was a game, and a watch. Or a clock, really. The LCD screen showed the time but also played a single game, with the range including Nintendo headliners Donkey Kong and, of course, Mario Bros. 

Interested? Well, you're in luck because Nintendo has just announced the return of the Game & Watch to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the sub brand. But this time, with a full colour LCD. It's fair to say people are ridiculously over-excited and beyond unimpressed in almost equal measures.
