Game & Watch Collection is a limited-edition collection of three Game & Watch games for the Nintendo DS. It was originally available only via the Club Nintendo service in Japan in 2006. Later, Nintendo brought Club Nintendo to America, Europe, and Australia as of December 15, 2008, and Game & Watch Collection was made available via the service in those regions. A sequel, Game & Watch Collection 2, was also released through the Club Nintendo service, but none of its games are of the Super Mario franchise.

Game & Watch Collection has a port of one Super Mario game, Donkey Kong, as well as Oil Panic and Green House. Donkey Kong and the other two games are all played in their native dual-screen configurations, with their original real-time clock and alarm functionalities retained, as well as the choice between Game A/B and high score keeping. Colors are more contrasted and brighter than on the original Game & Watch devices. The available movement posture shadows are more visible, not unlike the Classic mode of Game & Watch Gallery 4. No additional features have been added to the games, except for a control explanation in each game's mode selection menu.
