First-Ever Gameplay of the 1990 Mega Man 2 Tiger Electronics LCD Wristwatch


This, ladies and gentleman, is the Mega Man 2 Tiger Electronics LCD Wristwatch. It is one of, if not the rarest incarnation of Mega Man 2. And while it is by no means a perfect representation of the NES classic, its novelty alone - the mere fact that something like this exists - makes it a treasure.

The D-Pads' Rick snagged the watch for a staggering $400 off of eBay. After a heated internal conflict, Rick decided take it out of its original, ageing packaging and record a good 40-minutes worth of gameplay. It's one of the most unique, obscure "Let's Plays" I've ever encountered.

Also, I should mention that there are early talks about disassembling the watch for preservation and emulation. So yeah; you may yet have the chance to play it!

  1. I am ECSTATIC to announce that -- due to the regrettably-poor condition of the packaging -- I did not need to make any modifications to the packaging in order to extract the watch!

  2. I hated these games so much as a kid. It was like a slap in the face when you got the little Tiger Handheld version of the game instead of the actual game. It was like 1/3 of the price with 1/1000th of the content.

    1. Well, you're not wrong. I had a Lion King Tiger Electronics product.

      For wristwatch games, I had a Donkey Kong one that I got as a giveaway from a cereal box. They gave you the option of either Star Fox or Donkey Kong.

    2. Agreed. Yeah, it's nice to see it now as a collectible thing, but as a kid, it was'nt the best thing ever.
