Nintendo released a very quirky, unexpected game yesterday called NES Remix. The game is essentially a giant mash-up of NES games, with unique challenges for different games presented. Certain “remix” levels are also present, in which some new twists are added to a game. There are a ton of Zelda ones in here too; for example, if you tap on the eShop icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, the screen posted above will pop up, directing the player to the eShop where the player can buy full versions of the games featured. It’s a classic throwback to Zelda, and a very well done one at that. Thanks to Kotaku for the image!

There are also a bunch of cool challenges in The Legend of Zelda section on the NES Remix. IGN posted a great video showing off a bunch of challenges from the game, as well as another one which puts Link into an interesting environment. Hit the jump to view both videos!
