If the classic games from the NES are feeling a bit too familiar, Nintendo has just the thing: NES Remix. As the name implies, NES Remix features levels from many of your favorite NES titles — there are a dozen games included — but with tweaks and changes to make them feel fresh and add some new challenges. For instance, during today's Nintendo Direct presentation, the company showed off a Super Mario Bros. level that was played backwards, and an Excitebike track that you had to navigate in the dark. Other titles remixed in the game include Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, and Ice Climber. NES Remix will be available as a downloadable game for the Wii U today.
