Nintendo is bringing back its classic Game & Watch from 1980, with more details of the Super Mario Bros. handheld gaming system revealed Thursday. A video on YouTube shows that it now sports a modern LCD screen, a control pad shaped like a plus sign, a rechargeable battery with USB connector and a digital clock onscreen that you can crack open with Mario to reveal more items and coins.

Nintendo's new Game & Watch will come with Super Marios Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Ball (Mario Version). The system is scheduled to launch Nov. 13, with preorders for the $50 system opening soon.
