16 classic NES games put into one title. Only they’ve been changed to include fresh objectives. Link in Donkey Kong? Why not?
A price for this download was not announced. We’ll check it out and share our impressions soon.
UPDATE: Nintendo announced the price point and a few details in a release following the Direct presentation. Here’s that line:
Select parts from 16 classic NES games have been remixed with new challenges. For example, players might be tasked with completing a familiar Super Mario Bros.stage while running to the left. Or they might encounter a revamped level of Donkey Kong that allows them to play as Link from The Legend of Zelda series. NES Remix includes Miiverse compatibility, so players with broadband Internet access can show off their skills, complete with cool 8-bit stamps. NES Remix is now available exclusively in the Nintendo eShop for $14.99.
We’ll be nabbing this one soon.
