The specification error in the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. is when selecting one of the 35 different animations in the included digital clock. Players press and hold the ‘A’ button to unlock the ‘Mario Drawing’ song. However, the subtitles of the lyrics in four of the seven available languages display incorrectly.

The subtitles for the other three available languages (Japanese, English, and Dutch) all display correctly. Nintendo also note that the displayed language can be changed at any time during playback of the song. The vocals are always in English however, regardless of the displayed language selected for the subtitles.

Finally, Nintendo state that the release date of the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. will not be affected and it will still launch on November 13th as planned. No future update or rectification of the issue was specified in the press release. You can pre-order the Japanese version of the system from this link.
