Nintendo’s New Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch Has a Language Error, and Has Already Been Hacked

So, the new Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch released today, and it is filled with loads of cool features. One of them is a ‘Mario Drawing’ song that, while vocalised in English, also displays lyrics in a number of different languages. And there’s an error with that.

According to Nintendo:

“We would like to inform you about an error with one of the digital clock’s 35 little touches in the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. system.

Unfortunately, the ‘Mario Drawing’ song (vocalised in English only) that can be accessed by holding the A button, displays an incorrect language’s set of lyrics if German, French, Italian or Spanish is selected from the title screen. English, Dutch and Japanese languages remain unaffected.”


The other bit of news is that while it’s only just been out, the Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch has already been hacked.

Hacker stacksmashing has been busy trying to see what makes this device tick:

Of note is that the device loads a Super Mario Bros. NES ROM into the RAM. Meaning someone might be able to figure out how other ROMs could be added in the future. 👀
