Take a run at even more retro remixes in NES™ Remix 2! Delve into over 160 bite-sized 8-bit challenges based on classic moments from 12 NES titles. This time, try your hand at twisted trials taken from later NES releases like Metroid, Kirby’s Adventure, Super Mario Bros. 3, Punch-Out!!, Kid Icarus, and more!

Conquer NES stages and earn Stars to unlock extra stages before moving onto Remix stages, where the rules are rewritten and the outcomes are all but expected! Nab coins from the world of Mario as Kirby, help Link escape a ghastly gang of Boos and try to clear viruses as they change colour in Dr. Mario – even retro veterans will have to relearn loads to overcome these encounters!

Re-master a dozen classic NES titles and get a fresh spin on the retro era in NES™ Remix 2, only on Nintendo eShop on Wii U!


Put yourself to the test against a wide range of NES stages that hone in on the gameplay details that made the original titles so addictive. Beat stages as quickly as you can to earn Stars and open up even tougher trials. Gather up enough Stars and you’ll be able to take on Remix stages, which flip the rules and challenge you in totally new ways!

You might know the original NES games like the back of your hand, but Remix stages are designed to defy the expectations of even the most experienced gamers. These classic titles have been altered in surprising new ways – can you master them all over again? In some Remix stages you’ll find yourself playing with different main characters, exploring unfamiliar worlds or even adjusting to new display settings!

Check out just a few ways that stages might switch. Try to triumph over every tricky Remix!


Hazard warning

Deal with two threats at once!


Lights out

Beat the bad guys, even when your view is obscured!


Sprite swap

Backgrounds, baddies and even your main character may be swapped around!


Flip out

Try to win when your whole world's turned upside down!


New approaches

Put your skills to use in strange surroundings!


Stamp out

Earn Bits by beating time records, clearing stages and simply for taking part. Collect enough and you can unlock stamps, based on classic Nintendo sprites, to brighten up your high score Miiverse boast posts! If you take part in the new Championship Mode and upload a high score to Miiverse, you might even win a special stamp!

What's New?


It's a-me, Luigi!

In the first NES™ Remix, one stage challenged you to complete World 1-2 of Super Mario Bros. in reverse, as Luigi! This time, you can take on the whole game from right to left in Super Luigi Bros. Take advantage of Luigi’s higher jump and beat Bowser! Play through solo or take turns with a friend!


Action replay

Whenever you hit the high score in a stage, a replay video will be saved. A video of your best performance for each stage is stored on your system – click the button next to the chosen stage and show off your best run! You can even pick up tips by watching other players' replays via Miiverse!


Go for gold

If you also have save data from the first NES™ Remix, you can try for high scores in three rapid-fire levels in Championship Mode!

Complete three challenges within a time limit of 6 minutes and 21 seconds:

  • Collect 50 coins in Super Mario Bros.! (World 1-1)
  • Collect 25 coins in Super Mario Bros. 3! (World 1-1)
  • Go for the high score in Dr. Mario! (Level 00-Med)

The faster you can complete the first two stages, the more time you can spend building up your score in the final stage! Once you’re finished, you can upload your score to Miiverse – if you’re one of the top ten players of the day, you’ll earn a special Championship Mode stamp!
