Wii U games NES Remix and NES Remix 2 are getting a combined physical release as the NES Remix Pack, Nintendo has announced.
The year of Luigi's over, right? I should probably take off these green dungarees, then, but I can't help but cling on to the memories of twelve sweet months spent in the presence of the beanpole plumber. Nintendo can't either, it seems, and he takes a star role in NES Remix 2 thanks to Super Luigi Bros., a reimagining of the NES original that places Mario's brother in the starring role and runs through the classic levels backwards.
NES Remix - Nintendo's recent madcap rearranging of its classic games in an exciting new package - was quite the nostalgia-tinged offering on Wii U, but it led many Nintendo fans to wonder why such a seemingly simple affair wasn't also on the 3DS. According to series director Koichi Hayashida, it's because the handheld simply wasn't powerful enough.
