Game & Watch Gallery 2 is the sequel to Game & Watch Gallery. This 1997 Game Boy game included six revisions of classic Game & Watch games, one of which is not playable from the beginning and must be unlocked. It was not released in Europe or Australia until 1998 when it was re-released on the Game Boy Color, except in Japan.

Games[edit]

Trivia[edit]

The original box art.
  • On the game's original box art, a Yoshi's Story-style Baby Yoshi is shown playing Vermin, and Princess Peach was smiling while playing Chef. Donkey Kong also looks different. On the cartridge art, though, which attempts at recreating the boxart, the Yoshi shown is Super Mario World style, and Toadstool was having problems.
  • Despite a Green Yoshi playing Vermin on the boxart, It is actually an Orange Yoshi in game.
  • After the player views the credits once (after attaining 50 stars), they can access the credits again at any time by pressing any sequence of buttons on the Control Pad and immediately pressing the A Button or Start.
