NES Remix Pack Getting A Physical Disc Release On Wii U This Fall

NES Remix came out at the end of 2013 as a surprise eShop release that managed to revitalize many lesser known NES games and introduce them to a new audience. Its WarioWare "microgame" style of gameplay mixed up games like Super Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda with titles like Pinball and Wrecking Crew and the results are highly addictive and quite fun. Needless to say, the game was a success and a sequel titled NES Remix II dropped a few months later and brought even more beloved NES classics into the fold. As a bonus, if you owned both games you would be rewarded with even more playable content in the form of Championship Mode which features a new online leaderboards system.

Earlier this year in Japan, Nintendo decided to pack both games on a single disc and release the collection as a physical retail package (a huge bonus to fans who prefer physical to digital). Wii U fans in the US were eagerly awaiting a North American release but were surprised to hear nothing at E3 2014. It turns out that Nintendo was saving that tidbit (as well as other goodies) for Comic-Con where they officially announced that NES Remix Pack will be released Holiday 2014. Pricing and exact release date were not revealed but the game will likely see release around December. Having put quite a few hours into the first game, I highly recommend this collection for Nintendo fans both young and old. Enjoy!
