Nintendo announced at San Diego Comic Con that a retail version of eShop titles NES Remix 1 and 2 will be released in North America. NES Remix Pack (pictured above) was released at retail in Japan earlier this year for a price of about $28 in US dollars, so we can likely expect a similar price point in the States.

Well, that further solidifies my Dr. Luigi Club Nintendo prize. I could see this as being a nice Christmas gift to ask for.

I would think this means a NES Remix 3 or a SNES Remix is out of the question for now.

NES Remix 3 was pretty unlikely anyway because there isn't much left in Nintendo's NES catalog. Gumshoe isn't going to sell NES Remix 3.

But I don't think this news means anything for SNES Remix.

@Jargon

I don't see them marketing both simultaneously, so unless a SNES Remix came sooner, I'm thinking no earlier than 2015.

Nintendo's line is that SNES Remix or Game Boy Remix could happen if there is fan demand. Maybe how well this sells could be a factor in that?

@nate38

Good idea!

@Mop it up

Perhaps. A Game Boy Remix.... now that's interesting.

@DrFinkelstein

Well, I doubt SNES Remix would be such a quick turn around anyway since it requires a new engine in a way NES Remix 2 didn't. So yea, probably won't come out until 2015 (if it exists at all).

But if it weren't for that I think it's possible Nintendo could release both around the same time, with SNES Remix as a download title, since I think they see eShop games and physical games as having different audiences. But that's just a guess.

Interesting, I'll probably get this since I don't plan on buying an external drive and I'm sure the fridge will fill up quick!

Cover art is pretty rad too.

@deathly_hallows

I totally agree on that cover art. I want it bad!

Saw this coming, which is part of why I got Game & Wario instead of NES Remix for Club Nintendo. Looking forward to playing this!

@Koovaps
Of course that's the art for JPN, watch the NA art be total garbage.
