Mr. Game & Watch
Updated January 29th, 2002

This character comes from the "Game & Watch" series of LCD game devices.
Why make this unexpected choice?

Game & Watch began being sold in the 80's.
It continued being sold abroad until '93, and has sold a whopping 40 million units worldwide.
That's on par with Mario.

Game & Watch does not use cartridges.
Each system has two games, involving moving around solid-black people frame-by-frame across the LCD screen.

In Smash Bros, Mr. Game & Watch is a reproduction of these characters.
Each of his attacks and special moves hail from a different game. Wow!
(How many can you recognize?)

His flatness and frame-by-frame motion have been painstakingly recreated.
In fact, during development, even his motions were frame-by-frame, but that was changed to be more traditional because it was too hard to play...

It should be noted that, even though Game & Watch devices can be hard to find, players can still play the "Game Boy Gallery" series on e-Reader.

How to unlock:
Clear Classic, Adventure, or Break the Targets with all characters except Mr. Game & Watch.
Or play 1000 versus matches.

His Break the Targets stage is short and simple.
