The news of the console's re-release follows the relatively new trend of gaming companies selling miniature versions of classic consoles that come pre-loaded with games and ports to hook the devices up to modern TVs.

Nintendo's celebrating Super Mario's 35th anniversary with the announcement of the Super Mario 3D All-Stars bundle. The device originally had two buttons, a black-and-white LCD screen, and only one game.

The Game & Watch, which will be priced at 5,478 yen ($51), will incorporate several games of the Mario series 40 years after the original console was released, and is attracting many older fans. But eventually, the company phased them out in favor of the Game Boy, which could render moving pixels on the LCD screen.

Get your hands on a new piece of Super Mario™ history with a collectable Game & Watch system! Other Nintendo products are also getting in on the anniversary goods. The hardware, which weighs at 0.15 pounds, has been updated to run not only the NES version of Super Mario Bros., but also Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. The product will also come with "Ball", the first title available from the Game & Watch series.

Super Mario Bros. 35 will be available to play on the Nintendo Switch on 1 October as a digital freebie for online members.

Nintendo's official description reads: "The physical kart responds to boosts in-game and in the real world, stops when hit with an item and can be affected in different ways depending on the race". They do say it'll ship on November 13th with an MSRP of $50... but beyond that, if you're anxious about getting one of these, you'll want to keep an eye out for more details. It'll ship with a USB-C charging cable and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can support up to about 8 hours of play time.
