NES Remix 2 - Overview video

How fast can you climb the beanstalk mountain in the first level of Super Mario Bros. 2?

NES Remix 2 is a fascinating test of some of your very specific classic gaming abilities, like how fast you can recover from a Punch-Out knock down, or how quickly you can blast fools in Kirby's Adventure's quick draw mini-game. It's genuinely exciting to exercise those long-dormant parts of my brain — the ones in charge of Kid Icarus pathing and Princess Peach-floating. Also, who doesn't love unlockable Miiverse stamps? Kids are absolutely bonkers about Miiverse stamps right now.

In today's Overview, Justin and I run through a smattering of NES Remix 2's short-form challenges. Known high score champ and hot sauce magnate Billy Mitchell also swings by for a bit, and awards me a place alongside his eternal, glorious throne.
