Remember NES Remix, the Wii U game that took oldschool NES games and gave them a twist? Yeah… it wasn’t received that well, but it looks like it’s getting a sequel anyway. Nintendo recently unveiled a new trailer for the game, showing that it will allow you to play snippets of such classic titles such as Punch Out!, Dr. Mario, Kirby’s Adventure, and more. The remixes, this time around, are actually a bit more imaginative. For example, you have to navigate a level in Super Mario Bros 3 using 3 Marios of completely different velocities, get through a Mario Bros. 1 stage with 2D Link from Zelda 2, get through a Kid Icarus stage with Samus, battle Wispy Woods with Kirby with Boos slowly coming in from the left side of the screen, battle Bowser in Super Mario Bros. 3 with Peach from Super Mario Bros. 2 and more.
NES Remix 2 also introduces a new full game called Super Luigi Bros. It’s a remixed Super Mario Bros 1 with Luigi as the star. The main difference here is that the whole game is flipped, and Luigi has to run right to left instead of left to right. You might think this is simple, but it’s actually quite difficult.
In addition, if you own both NES Remix 1 and NES Remix 2, a new mode called Championship mode will be unlocked, which mimics the old NES championship tournaments of yore.
