Nintendo has confirmed that NES Remix 2 will be released for the Wii U on April 25. A new trailer from Nintendo UK shows a wide variety of wacky mini-games you’ll be able to play based on all your retro favorites.
Don’t jump in thinking you’ll just be getting mini-portions of NES games either. Sure, there is a healthy helping of that with games like Dr. Mario, Punch Out!, Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels, and Metroid, but you’ll also see some “remix” levels which put a twist on a classic. Play a level in Super Mario Bros.3 re-envisioned as a total silhouette, or my favorite, defeat the infamously easy level 1 boss, Whispy Woods, from Kirby’s Adventure before a giant gang of Boo ghosts from Super Mario Bros. 3 kill poor Kirby.
It’s that kind of crossover which makes me want to play this the most. Plus, Super Luigi Bros. just totally blows my mind on all fronts.
We enjoyed the first game a lot, although the $14.99 price tag was a bit steep. Maybe this second one will deliver content along with the nostalgic laughs.
