Official NES Remix contest canceled because of exploits

In case you hadn't heard, NES Remix hit the Wii U for $15 after a surprise announcement during a recent Nintendo Direct. While it could have been a whole lot more interesting, retro enthusiasts alike have been enjoying it -- myself included!

To help promote the game a special contest was being held worldwide to see how quickly you could complete a specific stage. Sadly, the director of the game has confirmed that an unspecified amount of people have exploited the challenge through an unconfirmed method, so it's been entirely canceled.

After doing some digging, it appears as if the exploit involves constantly pausing the game to cheat the clock. Well, that's a shame.

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
