Recently, the brand name has had talk of being revived in yet more crossovers, one known as ''VideoGame/NintendoLand'' and another called ''VideoGame/GameAndWario'', both for the UsefulNotes/WiiU. Also, a new, fully-playable MiniGame in the style of the originals is present as one of the visualizations available in the Nintendo3DS's "Nintendo 3DS Sound" app, which involves a Mr. Game & Watch darting around to bounce a soccer ball off of its head.

** ''Donkey Kong Circus'' is probably never going to see a rerelease, since the premise is that Mario is keeping Donkey Kong as a circus attraction, forcing him to juggle pineapples whilst dodging fireballs. This is also a case of CharacterizationMarchesOn, as in the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong''[='s=] lore, Mario, or Jumpman back then, was an all-around abusive pet owner; he's [[TheHero nowhere near]] that [[TookALevelInKindness anymore]].

Oddly enough, they were a major hit in Japan but relatively unsuccessful in the US, to the point where they never became as popular or widespread as overseas. Part of this was due to bad marketing (Nintendo of America used their own employees in commercials) and part of it was due to Nintendo not understanding how the toy industry worked, since they had marketed the Game & Watch machines as toys rather then consumer electronics. This was a mistake they made only once -- their next attempt at American video games was with the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem, and we all know how well that went. On the other hand these games became a smash hit in the SovietUnion, where the localized versions was license-produced as UsefulNotes/ElektronikaIM. [[labelnote:Very interesting fact:]]While Nintendo bought rights from Elektronika to make ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'', Elektronika grabbed the Game & Watch concept, so it's not exactly known if it was done with Nintendo's permission or not.[[/labelnote]]

Back when Nintendo was in its early days ([[LongRunner early for videogames]], at least), GunpeiYokoi saw a business man playing with his LCD calculator on his way home. This inspired him to make a watch that doubled as a game to kill time with. Thus the Game & Watch, a watch and a game that looks slightly like a calculator, was born.

* DropTheHammer: ''Vermin'' has you dropping two hammers. ''Judge'' awards points for either hitting the other player with your hammer or dodging theirs, depending on whether or not they drew a higher number. Bluto has a hammer when appearing from the left side in ''Popeye''. Also, hammers are literally dropped in ''Helmet''.
