The Game & Watch Gallery series is composed of collections of some of Nintendo's original Game & Watch titles in two styles: original and remade with characters from the Super Mario Bros. series. Known in Japan and Australia as the Game Boy Gallery series, four installments have been released, each for various incarnations of Nintendo's portable systems, like Game Boy and Game Boy Advance. In many cases, the mini-games ported onto these collections exist in their graphically upgraded forms as well as their original ones. Also, the titles often feature actual galleries explaining the history of the Game & Watch system and the various games released for it. The first four titles in the series also feature Super Game Boy borders which mimic the original Game & Watch casing designs. The series was known as Game Boy Gallery in Australia and is one of the very few Australia-only localizations with the series in Australia now known as Game & Watch from GBA onwards.

This game is not available for all users, instead of purchase for Club Nintendo members only, which is the case for Australian and North American members. It was released in Europe on 11/12/2009.

Game & Watch Collection 2

Game & Watch Collection 2 is the fourth Japan-only Nintendo DS game for Club Nintendo members. It features two single-screen Game & Watch games, Parachute and Octopus, along with an all-new dual screen game combining Parachute on the top screen with Octopus on the bottom screen. Like the previous release, the games come with both Mode A and Mode B as well as the alarm feature, which can be accessed on the start screen and the games contained in this one are exact ports of the original versions.
