You might already know about the NES Remix series. It consists of two games for the Wii U, and each game has a selection of classic NES titles remixed for rapid-fire challenges.
You might have to clear a stage in a certain time, collect a certain number of coins or beat an enemy with the lights turned off. The games take titles you know from the 8-bit era and flip them on their heads.
This morning, Nintendo announced Ultimate NES Remix for the Nintendo 3DS. This is an eShop title set to release on December 5th, 2014. It will sell for $29.99.
Here’s the word on features from the press release.
The game features rapid-fire challenges and mashups from a selection of 16 of Nintendo’s finest 8-bit games. Regional online leaderboards will let players see how they stack up against others in their area, and Championship Mode offers a series of challenges from three different games.
Based on my experience with the previous games in this series, NES Remix should be great on the go. It’s nature of play is fast and small, exactly what some portable gamers like most.
We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
