NES Remix 1+2 Will Get North American Retail Release

By   /   Jul 28, 2014

Nintendo will release NES Remix and NES Remix 2 in a bundle package to retail stores in North America. This boxed version will arrive this holiday season.

Previously, the two games were only available separately through the Nintendo eShop. Japan already received this boxed version in April, titled the Famicom Remix 1+2.

Both NES Remix titles are exclusive to Nintendo Wii U. In the games, you tackle classics in a different take for unique objectives.

Having both games simultaneously does have its advantages, namely the addition of Championship Mode leaderboards.

The first NES Remix has most classics on board of its collection of 16 titles. For instance, it features Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong.

NES Remix 2 adds a few more well-known franchises. Additions include Kirby’s Adventure, Metroid and Punch-Out.

There has not been a price point announced for the bundle. Currently, both titles are available on the Nintendo eShop for €9.99 each, so hopefully it will be mildly priced.

Nintendo still has no plans to bring the NES Remix series to the 3DS handheld, unfortunately. Earlier on, the developer mentioned that the bundle of classic remakes needed more power than the pocket device could provide.

The move to put NES Remix 1+2 in retail stores is more than likely to encourage impulse buys from fans not that familiar with Nintendo’s eShop. To be honest, it’s not exactly the best online shopping experience out there in the first place.
