What Are The Chances Of Mega Man In 'NES Remix?'
NES Remix is a jumble of bite-sized challenges based on classic first party NES favorites. Ever wanted to play as Link in Donkey Kong? It's that sort of game.
With the sequel due out in a couple of days, sights are already set on the potential third entry with hopes of Nintendo expanding the series to include third party games like Mega Man, Castlevania, and Contra. There's some real potential for fun crossovers... but what are the chances of that actually happening?
IGN recently pitched that question to NES Remix director Koichi Hayashida. “Well personally I'm a fan of those games, and I like them a lot," he said. “If there's a big enough outpouring of support for these titles, it's something I'd like to take a look at.”
Hayashida is also keen on the idea of Nintendo branching the Remix series out to other platformers with challenges based on the SNES and other legacy consoles. "If we get a big enough cry for that, with a lot of people saying, 'Hey, we'd love to see more of these perhaps for the SNES, Game Boy or Game Boy Advance,' then it would be something we can take a look at,” Hayashida continued.
As we've seen recently, Mega Man is a perfect fit among Nintendo's all-stars. The franchise would be a welcome addition to future Remix titles, I'm certain. All in all, though, it depends on the demands of the players.
