How old were you in 1981? I was still in single digits and blissfully unaware how addictive Gunpei Yokoi’s Nintendo Game & Watch creations would turn out to be.
On this day (July 16) in 1981, Nintendo released Octopus – their latest handheld classic in the G&W wide-screen series. Oh how I lusted after this one (like many other Game&Watch releases), but alas, I never got to have my own till recently.
If your name is ‘Jenifa Stuart’, I have your Octopus Game & Watch!
