Don't expect the NES Remix games to come to 3DS

I'd be playing NES Remix 2 right now were it not for my tragic lack of a Wii U. (Almost made an impulse purchase the other day.) With the sequel out this week, one question that might've crossed your mind is, "Why not also put these games on 3DS?" Yes, Nintendo -- why not?

Director Koichi Hayashida gave an answer to IGN, saying that he was familiar with Wii U having worked on Super Mario 3D World. "But, if you step into the shadows a bit more, in order to accomplish what we wanted with NES Remix, and get the effect we wanted out of it and the value that we wanted it to have, we needed some more machine power," he elaborated.

"I think the Wii U offered that up for us pretty easily, and it just would have been more difficult to do it for the 3DS," he said. "I think that's really the answer. It's just that the Wii U had the machine power we were looking for in order for us to build the software we envisioned from the get go."

That's okay. Just make sure the next handheld can emulate SNES games and/or remixes of them.

Click your heels together and wish for SNES or GBA Remixes

When Nintendo feels like we get too close, it puts us right down. It's not the lover man that we want it to be, at least when it comes to fulfilling what can sometimes seem like lofty requests. For instance, remixes featuring...more

Nintendo may have gone too far with this one

In this, our Year of Luigi, 2013, a terrible thing has happened. Somehow, this one minigame in NES Remix seems to have slipped by Iwata. Is it a conspiracy from Reggie to axe the extended 2014 Year of Luigi celebration?...more
