Ultimate NES Remix is a "best of" compilation of the NES Remix series and is the only installment of the series available on a handheld for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was announced in August 29, 2014 and was released in late 2014 in Europe, Oceania and the US and Canada and Summer 2015 in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Unlike the NES Remix Pack for the Wii U, which contains everything found in NES Remix and NES Remix 2, Ultimate NES Remix contains only challenges from 16 games pulled from the earlier titles along with two new game modes and a returning mode from NES Remix 2. Due to the change of platforms, stamp collecting was removed. Players who ordered the game by December 5 received a download code for a limited edition Famicom-style 3DS theme. Unlike most 3DS games, Ultimate NES Remix does not support stereoscopic 3D display.

Gameplay[edit]

Games[edit]

The challenges are almost the same as its predecessors. There are a few differences such as wording for the instructions. The players are also able to see regional rankings for games stages.

Speed Mario Bros.[edit]

Speed Mario Bros.

Just like NES Remix 2, Ultimate NES Remix contains a port of Super Mario Bros., but entitled Speed Mario Bros. this time around. It is almost identical to the original, except that it runs at twice the speed.

Championship Mode[edit]

Ultimate NES Remix includes the NES Remix 2 mode Championship Mode. The player faces three challenges, and the goal is to get as many points as possible. The first challenge is to collect 50 coins in Super Mario Bros., the second challenge is to collect 25 coins in Super Mario Bros. 3, and any remaining time is used to score as many points as possible in Dr. Mario.

Famicom Remix Mode[edit]

Exclusive to Ultimate NES Remix, this special mode is unlocked by earning three stars in every stage in the game. It includes challenges from the Japanese version of the game, some of which use different sound effects.[1] Conversely, in the Japanese version, the North American version can be played as a special mode when earning three stars in every stage in the main mode.

Reception[edit]

Reviews
Release Reviewer, Publication Score Comment
Nintendo 3DS Daan Koopman, Nintendo World Report 7.5/10 "Ultimate NES Remix is a nifty collection for the Nintendo 3DS. It isn't the full featured package of your dreams, but the games they have chosen are quite playable and make for a great way to spend your time. For the veteran of the Wii U games, this new collection might be not enough to warrant to a second go, but having these challenges on a portable system is certainly a nice thing. The online features of NES Remix 2 are also mostly here, though I do think that the leaderboards are what more direct than the random Miiverse posts. Those two things might give Ultimate the edge it needs to convince you."
Nintendo 3DS Marcel van Duyn, Nintendo Life 7/10 "While Ultimate NES Remix is technically a sound game, it comes across as a rather modest, slightly lazy port. You're only getting about two thirds of the original content from the original Wii U eShop releases, and what was arguably one of the most fun instances of Miiverse integration is completely absent. If you don't see yourself getting a Wii U in the near future and desperately want to see what the fuss is all about, this is still a good investment, but otherwise it's probably best to just pick up the original titles or wait for the combo pack."
Nintendo 3DS Timothy Torres, PC Magazine 3.5/5 "Though comparable to time wasters on smartphones with its emphasis on quick bursts of play, Ultimate NES Remix is a good way to travel down memory lane and maybe even discover some 8-bit classics you never experienced."
