NES Remix (JP) is a downloadable Wii U video game developed by indieszero and Nintendo EAD Tokyo. NES Remix was released on December 18, 2013, the same day that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced the title.

The game is a collection of minigames based around classic NES games. Players are given challenges based around stages from various NES titles, but altered for an extra challenge. For example, there is a challenge whereby the player must help Mario get to the flagpole in Super Mario Bros. stage 2-3 while avoiding Cheep Cheeps and bottomless pits while the computer constantly makes Mario run to the right. Since Mario cannot stop, the challenge is in timing the jumps.

Gameplay

The game is set up similarly to the Warioware series where you play certain parts of NES titles in a certain time limit sometimes in succession. Each of the games plays pretty much exactly as they played in their original format except the Remixes which add an extra variation to the game. Each challenge is graded on a 3 star system in addition to a Rainbow rating based on how fast you completed the challenge, your remaining health and other things. Losing all your health and trying again directly results in getting only star. The rainbow isn't very necessary to completion only giving a few extra points, but adds the extra level of challenge for completionists. Further Remixes and other games are unlocked only by achieving a certain amount of stars. NES Remix also features stamps of the NES titles featured and are unlocked through achieved through getting enough points from the challenges.

Development

According to an interview with IGN, the gsme's director, Koichi Hayashida,worked in his own time as a pet project after Super Mario 3D Land and alongside Super Mario 3D World. Before 3 additional members of EAD Tokyo came to help, Hayashida had already created 100 of these challenges. Nintendo also brought in indieszero to help with development. According to Hayashida, he started this project to play these NES games at work as he did not get to play most of them as a kid. He was also inspired to break the games up into minigames for similar reasons, because as an adult he didn't have as much time as he did as a kid, but he still wanted to play later "scenes" in the games. Hayashida also stressed accurate emulation of the games even to include framerate drops and software bugs.

Challenges

The game divides itself in three sections of Remixes and 16 sections for each of the titles represented in the game. In each game's section, there is also an option to buy the game from the eShop
