Nintendo has confirmed that the newly-revealed NES Remix Pack will come packaged with Super Luigi Bros. Announced yesterday during Nintendo’s San Diego Comic-Con livestream, NES Remix Pack is a physical version of both NES Remix and NES Remix 2. It will be released in stores this holiday season.
During today’s San Diego Comic Con Nintendo of America announced that they will be releasing a NES Remix pack which will be coming later this year as a physical product. Pricing for the bundle has yet to be announced, but it shouldn’t be too expensive.
Nintendo of America has tweeted that they will be streaming upcoming Nintendo titles on Twitch from SDCC starting from 11am PT. The company wouldn’t say which games they will be streaming, but no doubt there will be something for everyone.

Nintendo Japan’s official website features a very short description of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for the Wii U. What’s interesting is it mentions that Link will be faced with a brand new nemesis. We will probably see Ganon in some capacity, but we will inevitably have to wait a while until we find out who this new nemesis is.
“This software is a Wii U Edition new legend of Zelda series. Faced with mysteries in the world of Zelda spread indefinitely without boundaries, a new link, a new nemesis.”
The best-selling LEGO Batman videogame franchise returns in an out-of-this-world, action-packed adventure.

Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it’s too late.
