NES Remix throws 16 classic games in a blender on Wii U eShop today

After years of uploading their NES catalog to the Virtual Console storefront, Nintendo has decided that a few changes might do these old games good. NES Remix, which is available to download from the Wii U eShop today for $14.99, takes 16 classic NES games and chops them up into WarioWare-style mini-challenges.

For example, relive some of your NES-era favorites like Mario Bros. (knock over as many enemies as you can), Super Mario Bros. (smash the turtle shell to collect 1-Ups on the World 3-1 steps), and Golf (get a hole-in-one).

But NES Remix also embraces the second half of its title with altered NES games that forces Luigi to travel right-to-left in Super Mario Bros., adds a colorful filter to Excitebike, or lets you play as Link in Donkey Kong.

NES Remix includes full Miiverse support and, once again, it’s available to download now from the Wii U eShop for $14.99.
