On this day 4 years ago, NES Remix 2 was released on the WiiU. NES Remix 2 featured several games that were absent from the first title, including Kirby’s Adventure, Kid Icarus, Punch Out!!, both versions of Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link, and many more.
NES Remix 1 and 2 featured a number of challenges and “remixes” to classic NES games, which involved everything from simple goals to playing the games in unique and unusual ways.
The series began as a pet project by EAD Tokyo’s Koichi Hayashida, during which time he developed 100 challenges by himself. Hayashida later said the desire to develop the game came about from a desire to play NES games at work – a desire we all share, Mr. Hayashida!
