I grew up on Nintendo's Game & Watch titles. Living in Japan at the time, it didn't take me long to pull a "I need that" with my parents, especially since all the Japanese kids were carrying these around. I had them, loved them, and sometimes wish I still owned them.

Little 200 DSi Point download versions have been released in Japan this year, but we've been left hanging. We're still kind of hanging, but Australia isn't. Australian COB ratings all but confirm that the Game & Watch titles are coming. For them. According to GamerBytes, nine of the many G&W titles have been released in Japan: Ball, Flagman, Vermin, Judge, Helmet, Chef, Donkey Kong Jr., Mario’s Cement Factory and Manhole. I assume these will be the same to hit Down Under.

None of the dual-screened ones yet, for some strange reason. Give 'em time, I say.

I'm going to remain hopeful for the US release of these titles.
