So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Notes: The flash images should be analysed, for a start

Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. is a special Game & Watch unit made to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Super Mario Bros., containing said game, The Lost Levels, and a Mario-themed version of Ball (a concept Nintendo had already done in G&W form as Mario the Juggler).

Much to everyone's (dull) surprise, it was only available through March 31, 2021.

Factory Test Menu

Hmmm...
To do:
Replace photos with direct captures, if/when possible.

To access the menu, hard reset the console while it is plugged in: press the POWER button for 5 seconds, then hold Up + B, press POWER, then before the Mario Clock appears, release Up and B, and press GAME + PAUSE/SET.

After hitting this button combo, the system will cycle through the following tests:

  • Power (Eject / Insert / Current Battery Power + user confirmation)
  • Buttons (D-Pad / A / B / Face buttons)
  • RTC (Randomized Control Trial)
  • Sound (Volume 0 / 5)
  • LCD (White / Black / Red / Green / Blue / Shade horizontal / Shade vertical)

If the test results are OK, hold B to power off. Upon booting back, the system will have its time reset to 12:00PM.
