Is That Link In Donkey Kong? Yes, It Is… In NES Remix For Wii U

By Ishaan . December 18, 2013 . 8:09am


This morning, Nintendo announced NES Remix for the Wii U eShop. The compilation consists of various portions of 16 NES games, with these parts “remixed” with new challenges.


Examples of this include being able to play as Link in a level of Donkey Kong, or completing a familiar Super Mario Bros. stage while running to the left. The title includes Miiverse compatibility, so players can share screenshots as well.


NES Remix is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U for $14.99.

    Ehhh $15? Kinda wish they showed more footage of remixed stages for people on the fence.

    So, 9-Volt from Warioware?

  • James Enk

    i like the idea behind this game

  • fool

    Anyone know who developed this?

        I wasn’t clear but I meant which internal team or whether it was outsourced. Nintendo has to put their name on it but like Dr. Luigi today is done by Arika.

    Those games are already harder than difficulty in current games. And now they want to make it harder?
    Awesome, sign me up.

    No Metroid or Icarus makes me sad.

    You unlock Zelda once you get 100 stars! Pretty cool!

  • anarchy_panty

    Those remixed stages from SMB look really interesting…but $15 is a bit too steep for me.

    Here’s Kacho and some kids playing some of the games:

    So… Super Mario Crossover? How long until they go after SMC with C&D requests?

  • 하세요

    This looks like a good “I’ve got nothing better else to do right now” game and hold some entertainment value.

  • KnifeAndFork

    This easily could have been a 3DS game…

    Guess this is just filler until the real Wii U titles come out.

  • Hours

    Very WarioWare. Pretty cool.

    I think it’s a bit pricy though.

  • NES/Famicom Remix? THis should be a Mode or a Stage for the next Super Smash Brothers!
