Nintendo Zelda Game & Watch

In August 1989 Nintendo releases an electronic game in the Game & Watch series, largely inspired by the game system of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

Titled Zelda (The Zeldain the manual, ZL-65), this Multiscreen features Link facing enemies such as Stalfos and a Moblin, and in a final battle he fights a dragon. As in The Legend of Zelda, the player can complete a second quest after a victory. The game gets good reviews, but the ease of gameplay is increased. The game was never released in Japan. All Game & Watch are designed by Nintendo in Japan. The game uses a new scenario.

The Game & Watch series was a line consisting of 59 handheld, portable electronic LCD games originally designed by Gunpei Yokoi and manufactured by Nintendo from 1980 to 1991. Each contained only one game that could be played on the LCD screen in addition to a clock and alarm clock. Some of the titles available in the Game & Watch series were Mickey Mouse, Balloon Fight and multiple Nintendo successes including Donkey Kong, The Legend Of Zelda and Mario Brothers. However, the announced game Tetris Jr. was never released.
