Nintendo have released three micro sized versions of their famous Game & Watch range in Japan today.  
 
What's your experience with the Game & Watch series?

I want Donkey Kong, that's my favorite Game & Watch game.  Speaking of Game & Watch, my cousin actually has Fire.  I'm jealous of him.  I would totally buy it from him so I can actually own one.

I've got the original Parachute. Don't have the other two though. Still, those are pretty funky. Wouldn't want to play them but they're cool for what they are.

Excellent idea, but looking at them now, it's more primitive than a watch.

What with these being widescreen only, the best you can hope for is Donkey Kong Jr, which will most likely be in the third series, after the second which I reckon will have games which use two directional buttons, like Mario's Cement Factory:

It reminds me of the Gameboy Micro, a little.
 
I would love those, I used to have fun playing on the Game & Watch Collection, on the original Gameboy.

I would like to see them make some as small as technology allowed.

I think this is as small as it''s ever going to get.

@Linkyshinks: For usability sake, but the tech could definitely be pushed further.  I bet you could make one as small as a micro SD card, at least.

Dude yes. I see there is a Chef one, I wonder if it is the same chef from Game and Watch Gallery 2. I played that so much on my GBC, would be so cool to own in this form.

Oh definitely. The Japanese and Nintendo themselves do have a like for small things, and Nintendo could make one for novelty, but I doubt it would ever be put on the market for sale. 
 
I want a new Game & Watch series...

It's the perfect key chain.
