Year Of Luigi Lives On In NES Remix 2 Trailer

Luigi's year may have officially ended last month, but its memory lives on in the latest trailer for NES Remix 2 for Wii U.

The new trailer for Nintendo's upcoming collection of remixed NES games, which releases April 25 on Wii U, features Super Luigi Bros.. In the game, players play the classic NES Super Mario Bros., in its entirety apparently, as Luigi moving from right to left, as opposed to left to right.

You can check out the trailer below, but I warn that it will affect your general perception forcing you to question what it is real and what is your imagination. We've seen this game played a certain way for decades, and to see it played in reverse? It's troubling, and unsettling, and I say this without sarcasm. It's very strange.

According to a report from earlier today, the next collection of games to be remixed by Nintendo may be GBA or SNES games. You can learn more about that story here. You can check out our review of the first NES Remix here.

  • No.
  • I think it's cool. For those who think its dumb, sorry that its to hard for you. Go play CoD, the games you ONLY can play.
  • It's probably worth mentioning that the character shown is SMB2 (that is, USA Lost Levels) Luigi, with higher jumping than in SMB1 (hence being able to make the 1-2 ceiling off of the first block).
  • Just watching the trailer felt really weird, I kept expecting the player to go to the right. Wouldn't mind having a go at it sometime.

  • Meanwhile at Nintendo...

  • Not for anything, but if they're having you play the game by going in the reverse direction, they might as well have the actual music in the game play in reverse too. Kinda stupid they omitted this. smh
  • I remember when this game was the game. I used to have to be Luigi sometimes. I will admit I never beat the game as Luigi.

  • Seeing it played in reverse really was weird to watch.
  • It took the immense power of the Wii U to reverse super mario brothers.
  • Could Nintendo be any lazier? They mirrored the level! The ? Graphics are BACKWARDS.

  • Luigi can jump mega high in this. yay.

  • This is definitely weird. All they did was mirror it, though... It's still SMB.
