Gamers love retro. Gamers love mashups. Goes without saying then, that gamers love retro mashups – and Nintendo has spotted the trend. The company has released a brand new project, NES Remix, that smooshes some of your favourite things all into one handy package.
It’s not quite the free-for-all you might be after, but it’s a nifty thing nonetheless. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata explains that the studio has taken “the best parts” from 16 classic games and given them a serious tweak, throwing in some all-new challenges.
For example: A blacked out Excitebike track where the only illumination is your headlight, a battle against a giant King Koopa from Super Mario Bros, and a replay of the original Donkey Kong, starring Link from The Legend of Zelda.
