Takara Game & Watch Keychains Are Disappointing At Best

By Andrew Liszewski

I’ll admit I got a little excited when I saw that Takara would be releasing 3 miniature Nintendo Game & Watch keychains including classic titles Parachute, Octopus and Chef, and the fact that they were completely solar powered was just the icing on the cake. But then my world came crashing down when I found out the Game & Watches aren’t actually playable, but just have an animated sprite loop on the LCD display. They should be available in Japan come March for about $12 a pop, but what’s the point?

    Try these Andrew. Its not solar powered but its totally playable just like the normal version and cheaper than then one above.

    we used to play with these when we were kids.
    i think it’s targeting 30’s to early 40’s just for the sake of nostalgia.
    but at the same time, young kids seem to enjoy those uncomplicated games to kill time, too.
