  • Balloon Fight
  • Excitebike
  • Ice Climber

  • Wrecking Crew
  • Donkey Kong, Jr.

Nintendo showed a debut footage that gave a taste as to what this NES Remix will bring. For example, in the footage shown a Zelda sprite appeared in Donkey Kong, so was a reversed Mario Bros level, and a level in Excitebike that will have players navigating a pitch black path using a bike with only a flashlight attached.

NES Remix will contains Miiverse functionality and will include stamps and provide the ability to post records from various levels as well.
