Game & Watch Gallery 3 is the third game in the Game & Watch remake series for the Game Boy line. It includes five minigames playable from the start and five more unlockables, five of which can be played in either Classic Mode with the original Game & Watch characters or an updated Modern Mode featuring Mario characters along with updated graphics, updated gameplay, and music. Game & Watch Gallery 3 was re-released on the Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console in Europe on September 25, 2014; in Australia on September 26, 2014; in North America on February 5, 2015; and as a promotional release in Japan on November 21, 2014, for those who register Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and one of Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire with Club Nintendo before January 20, 2015.
Like the previous games in the series, Game & Watch Gallery 3 features a system to unlock bonus features. As before, every 200 points the player reaches in a mode of a minigame is worth a star, up to five stars per minigame mode. The player unlocks features in the Gallery Corner as they collect stars. A very hard mode called Star Mode is unlocked for every game after the player earns at least 1,000 points in Modern Mode. The player can earn a total of 120 stars.
As the player collects stars, they will unlock new areas to check out. Below is a list of things that can be unlocked.
Note: Players can alternatively connect Game & Watch Gallery 3 with Game & Watch Gallery and Game & Watch Gallery 2 to unlock Game & Watch titles for the Museum with a link cable and 2 Game Boy Colors, but this was removed in the 3DS Virtual Console version. Instructions on how to link the games together are still listed in the 3DS version, but they cannot be selected.
- Hard Mode in Judge is replaced with a 2P VS mode, but due to Game Boy and Game Boy Color Virtual Console games on the Nintendo 3DS not having two-player functions, this mode cannot be selected in the 3DS version.
- ALL Museum titles in previous games reappear in this Museum.
This is the first Game & Watch game to have the Gift mode visitable at any point. Although the Gift Function was present in Game & Watch Gallery 2, it could only be visited when unlocking a new game/function.
As the player collects stars, they will unlock a feature called Secret 1. This feature describes information regarding an inverted version of the Game & Watch title Fire. When the player unlocks Secret 2, they can play the inverted Fire at any time but will not be able to pause the game.
On a side note, there is no Modern version of this title, and the player cannot earn stars for playing it. Additionally, the standard version of the game is used rather than the widescreen version, likely due to the size of the Game Boy Color screen.
