Game & Watch Donkey Kong and Zelda Keychain

Before the NES, the best you could get from Nintendo was a little clamshell porta-system that allowed you to beat up Donkey Kong, among others. Though this is no Twilight Princess, you'll still be able to collect Triforce pieces and free Zelda or beat the living crap out of a gigantic monkey.
