Go old school with a twist on your Wii U with the NES Remix

Last Updated: December 18, 2013


NES Remix has been released on the Nintendo Wii U and for just $15 we have to say that it offers some pretty memorable and enjoyable gaming – especially for us oldies!

The new game collection includes 16 classics from the original Nintendo console (NES) and features games such as Balloon Fight, Donkey Kong 3, Super Mario Brothers and Legends of Zelda. Not only that though (and here is where the “remix” part comes in), certain aspects of the games have been altered from the original – like one of the levels in Super Mario being entirely backwards! We’re not sure whether we’d prefer to play this way or as originally intended – but anyway…

Here’s the full list of games you’ll find in the collection: Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Donkey Kong 3, Excitebike, Super Mario Bros., Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Clu Clu Land, Wrecking Crew, Pinball, Urban Champion, Baseball, Tennis, Ice Climber, Golf and Balloon Fight. We think there’s a classic for everyone somewhere in there.
