New Championship Mode Brings Nostalgic Competition to NES Remix 2

by Steve CullumApril 10, 2014

When NES Remix 2 launches on April 25 on the Wii U eShop, its will contain a new Championship Mode, which harkens back to the 1990 Nintendo World Championship. Players will compete in three games, using the commutative score, similar to how the tournament worked. This time, the three games will be Super Mario Bros. (returning), Super Mario Bros. 3, and Dr. Mario. It does not seem like an online score board will be possible, but scores can be posted to Miiverse. In order to get this Championship Mode, players must own both the original NES Remix and this sequel.

When the first NES Remix was announced for Wii U, it was a surprise for Nintendo fans. When NES Remix 2 was announced, it was not as exciting. However, new modes like this one might change opinions. What do you think of Championship Mode?




April 10, 2014

A new mode inspired by the iconic 1990 Nintendo World Championship event is making its way into the upcoming NES Remix 2 game, launching exclusively in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U on April 25. The original Nintendo World Championship in 1990 challenged players to achieve the highest cumulative score in three specific games using a multiplier-based scoring system. The new Championship Mode in NES Remix 2 follows a similar model, but features an updated slate of three games and a revised scoring multiplier.

Super Mario Bros. remains as one of the three games in Championship Mode, but is now joined by Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dr. Mario. Players will take on a series of three successive score-based challenges in these games to achieve a cumulative total score. Scores can be posted to Miiverse, so players can compete with friends and others who also have the game. The first NES Remix game is required to experience Championship Mode in NES Remix 2.

NES Remix 2 is a mashup of classic Nintendo games that features challenges from many different NES games like Kid Icarus, Kirby’s Adventure and Metroid. Just like NES Remix, this sequel includes stages from NES games with added challenges, as well as modified stages that introduce new elements.
