Did you love NES Remix, but feel that it was missing some key games from the NES library, such as Super Mario Bros. 3 or Metroid? If so, you are in luck! During today’s Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata announced that Nintendo will be making a sequel to NES Remix featuring games from later in the console’s life. Some games seen during the sizzle reel include Super Mario Bros. 3, Metroid, Zelda II, Punch-Out!!, Kirby’s Adventure, and many more. Like the original, the game will feature minigames based on specific challenges from the games, such as beating Glass Joe in Punch-Out! It will also feature plenty of new Remixes, such as collecting coins as Samus, or fighting Bowser as Peach.

In addition to more minigames, NES Remix 2 will also include a whole new game, sort of. Expanded from a stage in NES Remix, the developers have created a full version of Super Luigi Bros. It contains every single level from Super Mario Bros., except in this version you play as Luigi running right to left instead of left to right. He also has his signature high jump which should make certain levels easier. Also, I noticed the menu screen had an option for something called “Championship Mode.” Iwata did not mention what this was, but I can’t help but think of the  well-known Nintendo World Championship carts. Could this be a tournament style competitive mode for the game? I guess we will have to wait and see.

NES Remix 2 will be releasing on April 25, though no price was mentioned. Are you excited to play more minigames and Remixes? Let us know in the comments!

    I had no desire to buy this game until I the announcement of Super Luigi Bros; that alone is worth the relatively low price of entry.

      I can agree with that.

      I bought the first one and was pretty underwhelmed. The remixed games were fantastic, but a lot of the challenges weren’t as exciting as I hoped they’d be. But, an entire version of Super Mario Bros. in mirror mode has definitely enticed me. It’ll feel like playing it for the first time all over again!
