The NES Remix series is a series which remixes various NES games and proposing challenges of very different nature, from defeating a certain number of enemies while invincible to playing Super Mario Bros. in reverse or with broken lights to playing Donkey Kong as Link. Gameplay is comparable to the WarioWare series. The first two games were available only on the Nintendo eShop on Wii U and therefore are currently unable to be purchased, while the others are compilations that are available for physical purchase.

The series is overall well received by fans and critics.[1][2] Nintendo has also suggested the possibility of expanding the series to cover games from other consoles, such as the SNES, due to the demand and support by fans.[3]

Wii U (Nintendo eShop-exclusive)
NES Remix is the first instalment in the series. It comprises various challenges from sixteen games, with eight of the games relating to the Super Mario franchise. It was integrated with Miiverse, where the player could write about their scores. Stamps are also unlocked throughout the game, and they could also be used within Miiverse. The player can earn up to 3 stars in each challenge, depending on how well they performed, and they are used to unlock certain challenges. The player may also receive a Rainbow Rank if they did very well, but this doesn't earn them another star and is simply for 100% completion.
NES Remix 2
  April 24, 2014
Wii U (Nintendo eShop-exclusive)
NES Remix 2 is the second game in the series, with similar gameplay to its predecessor. It features challenges from twelve games, with six of the games being part of the Super Mario franchise. The Miiverse and Stamps systems returned, while the star and challenge system was slightly modified. The game, though, adds two modes: Super Luigi Bros., which challenges the player to beat a mirrored Super Mario Bros. by playing as Luigi, and Championship Mode (inspired by a rare competition game), where the goal is to get the highest score while racing through Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario.
