Do you enjoy playing games on something like a watch? Do you count yourself as a fan of The Legend of Zelda? If the answer to those questions is 'yes' then you'll be pleased to know that some classic Zelda is coming thanks to Nintendo as the latest in the Game & Watch series.


Super Mario Bros. has already been released in this form and many were wondering whether Zelda would be next. So it was great news when we were told at E3 2021 that it would be – and we're getting three games at once when it comes out! That's not the only piece of Zelda news that Nintendo dropped at E3: we also got a lot more information about Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

So, for all we know about this triple wrist-wrapped adventure, read on for the lowdown – including when we can get our hands on it!

When is the Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda release date?

There are only a few more days to wait. To mark the 35th Zelda anniversary, the game will be released on 12th November 2021. Just in time to be added to many a Christmas wish list, we imagine. (It was on ours, but then we ordered it for ourselves anyway. We have no patience.)

Can I pre-order Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda?

Not just yet! The game has only just been announced and pre-orders are not currently live but they should be any day now. We'll update you as soon as they do but in the meantime, if you want to play some Mario on the watch device then you can pick that up at Amazon and Game.
