NES Remix Brings New Twists To Old Classics

Nintendo fans have been tweaking classic games for years in the form of hacks and reworkings meant to run on emulators, but now the company itself is getting in on the act.  Arriving on the Wii U eShop today for $14.99, NES Remix takes sixteen early Nintendo Entertainment System games, extracts the most memorable parts of them, and twists them up in new ways as a series of WarioWare-type microgame challenges.  Can you climb the first level of Donkey Kong as Link?  Can you defeat a Bowser twice as large as the usual one at the end of World 8-4 of Super Mario Bros.?  Can you drive an Excitebike motorcycle in the dark?  These are the kinds of demands placed on your by NES RemixNintendo has a released a trailer showing what to expect and as an old school Nintendo fan, this looks like a blast.  Sure, ROM hacks have been doing this kind of thing for years, but it's great to see it in an official capacity masterminded by some of the original creators.
