NES Remix 2

In April 2014, a little over four months after the release of NES Remix, a sequel was released -- NES Remix 2, featuring a new selection of NES titles.  Complete challenges "remixed" from classic NES games: beat a level quickly, get a high score in 60 seconds, play through a familiar game segment with a twist (in the dark, backwards), or even help Princess Peach save herself from Bowser!

The challenge "remixes" were spread across twelve games.  The Mario related titles included Dr. Mario, NES Open Tournament Golf, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, and Wario's Woods -- the remaining games were Ice Hockey, Kid Icarus, Kirby's Adventure, Metroid, Punch-Out!! (featuring a Mario cameo), and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

NES Remix 2 featured a few additional bonus modes.  Super Luigi Bros. was a Super Mario Bros., but with Luigi as the main character instead of Mario, and all the levels reversed.  Play through the game backwards, with Luigi's higher jumps and skidding landings!  If the first NES Remix was installed on the same Wii U, a special Championship Mode was unlocked in NES Remix 2.  In Championship Mode, players were tasked with completing a a three game challenge across Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario, reminiscent of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships challenge cartridge.

Overall, many gamers might enjoy this collection more than the first, given that this collection focuses more on the later, more complex NES titles.  The game was released in a physical bundle with NES Remix as NES Remix Pack, which was also later released on the 3DS Ultimate NES Remix.
