Hurry! Nintendo NYC store selling Game Boy Color watches

Limited stock of the classic handheld miniaturized into Game Boy Color watches, but only for New Yorkers.

If you're a true OG fan of the truest of OG's then this Game Boy Color wristwatch is essential wristwear, but you're going to need to hurry up and get to New York.

Mario's spiritual home is the scene of Nintendo's latest fashion experiment, with the NYC Nintendo store selling these really quite fetching GBC watches for $24.99 for a limited time only. The legendary handheld, released in 1998 to wow us with an unthinkable number of colors in the palm of our hand, can now bump your street cred with those kids from Williamsburg, or at a loft party in Greenwich Village.

Given how busy the NYC Nintendo store gets during Nintendo Direct streams, we're willing to bet there's a horde of fans descending on 10 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10020 right now. If you're hoping to get your hands (wrists?) on one, then probably aim to be there today before they close at 8pm. Google really does have a lot of useful info these days, doesn't it?

For the rest of us who can't make it to Manhattan on a whim, we'll just have to miss out, just like on so many other NY store exclusives in the past. Will anyone pick up a spare Game Boy Color watch for us? We'll PayPal you, we promise?
