UPDATE (8/16/19) @ 11:58 AM: If you happen to live outside of NYC and want to order this online, it’s available for purchase on Merchoid for $26.99. 


Nintendo is back at it again with tickling the fancies of its nostalgic user base. If you’d like to amp up your watch game (see what I did there?), and also happen to live in or near New York City, then consider strolling on into the Nintendo NYC Store to pick up a new Game Boy Color Watch. 

This wristwatch is a miniaturized version of the old handheld; the resemblance is strikingly close despite the reduced size. While you may not be able to play Tetris on it, it’ll least keep track of the time and also make beeps and boops reminiscent of the original handheld. Though, as far as watches go, it’s not exactly the smallest of the bunch. The hand model in the promo pics is even wearing it on the inside of their arm rather than out. But, it’s up to you to decide which direction you prefer.

The Game Boy Color Watch is available in the Nintendo NYC Store for $24.99 for a limited period of time. Nintendo hasn’t specified exactly how long it will be there, so your best bet is to check it out as soon as possible.
