Game & Watch Gallery 2 is the sequel to Game & Watch Gallery, released in 1997 for the Game Boy and in 1998 for the Game Boy Color. The game includes 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.


Like all the other Game & Watch Gallery games, the minigames can be played in either Classic Mode or Modern Mode; the former is identical to the original release of the minigame, while the latter has been redone with recognizable Mario characters along with updated graphics, updated gameplay, and music.

The original box art
  • Depending on what Game Boy hardware the game is played on, it will display appropriate hardware for controls when selecting the mode for each game, except for Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Player, which will display a Game Boy Color regardless.
  • On the game's original box art, a Yoshi's Story-style Baby Yoshi is shown playing Vermin, and Princess Peach is smiling while playing Chef. Donkey Kong also looks different. The final box art, however, depicts Yoshi in his Super Mario World appearance and Toadstool experiencing issues.
  • Despite a Green Yoshi playing Vermin on the box art, it is actually an Orange Yoshi in the game.
    • Similarly, the accompanying art for Chef depicts Toad being a waiter and having his mouth water as Peach is flipping eggs and fish from a frying pan, as well as another artwork depicting Toad with a slab of meat in front of him and obviously planning on eating it, even though Toad is absent from the game itself.
  • After the player views the staff credits once (after attaining 50 stars), they can access the credits again at any time by holding down on +Control Pad in the "View the Gallery" option and pressing A Button or Start Button. The player can also view the cast credits again by inputting the same button sequence, except they need to press up on +Control Pad.
  • In the Game Boy Color version, the pause/Game Over menu's colors vary depending on the game/version.
  • In the pause/Game Over menu, the border can be changed by pressing B Button
