The lights are on
Nintendo's NES Remix and Remix 2 for the Wii U combine a number of classic 8-bit Nintendo games and transform them into a series of challenges and minigames. So far only NES games have gotten the remix treatment, but if fan support is strong enough SNES titles could be next.
In an interview with IGN, NES Remix director Koichi Hayashida said whether or not SNES or Game Boy games could be remixed depends on fan support. “If we get a big enough cry for that, with a lot of people saying, 'Hey, we'd love to see more of these perhaps for the SNES, Game Boy or Game Boy Advance,' then it would be something we can take a look at,” Hayashida says.
Hayashida also discussed the possibility of Remix versions of third-party Nintendo games like Mega Man and Castlevania, saying once again it all depends on fan support. NES Remix 2 releases Friday. You can check out our review of the first NES Remix here.
Our Take:If NES Remix and Remix 2 prove successful for Nintendo, I see no reason why they wouldn't seek to continue putting new spins on classic SNES and Game Boy games. Whether that becomes a reality all depends on sales, so vote with your dollars.
