Japanese Wii U eShop gets an NES Remix 2 music makeover

Similar to what Nintendo did when Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze finally released in February, it looks like they’ve changed up the music you hear when you visit the Wii U eShop in Japan. Instead of the standard music, you’re greeted with the dulcet tones of the 8-bit era games from the newest remix. Perhaps we’ll find the same thing when we visit the Wii U eShop tomorrow in order to download the game. If you don’t hear the music, be sure and turn it on since this is a Vine, not a standard video with a play button.

If playing new version of old NES games isn’t something that tickles your fancy, remember the producer of the NES Remix series said he’d love to do the same with some of Nintendo’s other consoles, including the SNES and the N64. 8-bit glory may not be your thing, but there’s always a chance we could see more remixes, especially if they continue to be received well.

    Huh, nifty. I always like it when they do things like this.

    • MerryBlind .

      It’s all in the details!

  • Sdudyoy

    Interesting, though I don’t see how this is newsworthy, as the song changes alot.

  • ZeldaFan83

    He never said N64. He said he is very interested in SNES and GBA if fans show enough interest.

    • SP-937-215

      But N64 and Gamecube are what we really want :/

      • Sdudyoy

        Yeah, I think there should just be Nintendo remix’s, remixes from all Nintendo consoles including 3DS and Wii U, that would be better than releasing one console version at a time.

      • ZeldaFan83

        N64 may happen but probably not and GameCube definitely wouldn’t happen. Its very easy to change the code in 8 bit and 16 bit games for Remixes but when you look at the code in 3d games is when it becomes extremely difficult. I don’t think 3d games would work all that great as a Remix. It works great because of the really old 2d classics and the controls are very simple as well are the games. 3d games are much more complicated and I don’t think quick little mini games of full 3D games would work plus personally I wouldn’t want to play mini games or remixes of 3d games, I like to take my time with 3d games. Can you imagine how much it would cost for a N64 remix, probably 50 bucks because of the more complex development.

        • SP-937-215

          Nintendo should do a RPG with their first party IP’s, like Kingdom Hearts, with all different kinds of gameplay and different worlds to visit. I’d buy it. They could take the whole Subspace Emissary thing and blow it up into an epic storyline.

    • Decker Shado

      I’d be interested in SNES Remix, Genesis Remix, and GENESNES meRix.

      • ZeldaFan83

        Nice. I’d like to see 3rd party games in a Remix with Nintendo games. Like saving princess peach from bowser as Megaman or defeating Dr. Wily as Samus.

      • thedeciderU

        yes!!!!

        Dude… nobody understands what you’re trying to communicate with those random anime pics you keep posting on every article… at least I don’t…

        Not trying to be rude, keep on posting these if it makes you happy lol, but you always make me go “ok……….???……….let’s….. move on….”

        • jjbredesen

          They are actually really good and i personally think he posts some the best memes on this site, its a breath of fresh air and different from the boring same old (Insert overused meme here) memes.

          • Capt. Smoker

            thanks man, your a good friend, always enjoy your comments on here and your funny posts xD

          • jjbredesen

            Thanks :D

          • MerryBlind .

            Glad to see you comment, because you’re a perfect comparison, I ALWAYS get YOUR memes, but NEVER get HIS hahah

          • jjbredesen

            Thanks, well i tend to use memes that people are familiar with or famous phrases so that as many people as possible can understand what i am trying to say :)

        • Capt. Smoker

          so….. something silly like that bothers you?, I.post them because it’s fun and mostly as a reaction to comments or news articles, maybe it’s not your taste but to each their own, not sure if you were trying to make me feel bad with this comment or to make me stop posting silly pictures but either way, that’s your problem, just ignore them if it bothers you, no need to be judgemental and all that jazz, it’s only a website after all.

          • MerryBlind .

            Did you miss my “Not trying to be rude, keep on posting these if it makes you happy lol” or what? I said that precisely to show you I don’t mind, no it doesn’t bother me, no I’m not judgemental, and no I don’t want to make you feel bad, etc. etc.

            I’m just confused as to what your actual “reaction” is. Every time I see you posting an anime picture I’m just “wtf is he trying to say with that?” but I’m not like “oh look at that retard”.

          • Capt. Smoker

            I didn’t miss it, I just know not to take words at face value is all, people say no offence before insulting people but it’s stil an insult for people to be butthurt about lol, I’m glad it doesn’t bother you, I figured it did for you to make an effort to reply to it like that.

            Sometimes I don’t even understand my reactions, i just find funny pictures at random and post them, doesn’t really matter if anybody understands them so long as someone has a laugh at em from time to time.

            Thanks for the heads up, but considering I don’t personally know anybody who comments on these articles, what they think of what I post doesn’t really bother me, anyways, since it seems we got off on the wrong foot, lets just say I’ll try to find a funny one next time that suits the article ^^ and of course, I’d like it if we could get along and team up against the trolls :D

          • MerryBlind .

            haha all good man! Don’t worry I’m not gonna chase you down and piss you off, not looking to make ‘enemies’ loll I’m sure we’ll get along just fine!

        • SP-937-215

          I don’t get it either. I feel like I would have to know a lot about different anime shows to catch these references.

          • MerryBlind .

            Yeah maybe I don’t get his references because I haven’t watched the shows they’re coming from….

  • Knlegend1

    • ETeach
