A second instalment of the NES Remix series was announced in the latest Nintendo Direct. The mashup of classic Nintendo games features challenges from later NES games like Super Mario Bros. 3, Kirby’s Adventure and Metroid. Just like NES Remix, the sequel includes stages from the original games with new challenges, as well as modified stages that introduce new elements.
The best thing to come out of this announcement was that it includes a free bonus game. Super Luigi Bros is a full game based on a challenge from NES Remix. It contains all the levels from the Super Mario Bros. original game, only now it stars Luigi and requires players to navigate familiar levels in an unheard-of way – by running to the left! The game even incorporates Luigi’s signature high jump. It’s a fun new spin on a classic game.
The game is scheduled to launch on Nintendo eShop for Wii U on 25th April.
