The Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary Game & Watch collectible will be shipped to retailers later than initially thought.
Following the conclusion of the Super Mario 35th anniversary direct, fans in North America were wondering when they can pre-order the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. device. The device was available to pre-order at retailers in the UK and Australian markets, but not in North American markets. It turns out that Federal Communications Commission has not yet given authorization, according to a now-deleted disclaimer; therefore, the device cannot be purchased until its release on November 13, 2020.
Thankfully, the official product website has the following notice: “The Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system (releasing Nov. 13) will continue to be shipped to retailers through approximately March 31, 2021, and will be available for purchase while supplies last.”
