Nintendo says SNES & Game Boy Remix games could be put into production, if there's enough demand

On the cusp of the NES Remix 2 launch on the Wii U eShop, IGN caught up with series director Koichi Hayashida to discuss the success of the series, the inspirations behind its creation, and its possible future.

On the future part, interviewer Jose Otero, asked if fans can expect to see classic Nintendo titles from the company's various other platforms (citing the Super Nintendo and Game Boy Advance as examples) will be given the challenge-based remix treatment. 

In his response, Hayashida said he has "a large desire to explore that very idea” with three of Nintendo's most beloved platforms, but in order to explore these ideas, he's going to need to know that the fans will regard them as something worth seeking out. 

“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."

NES Remix 1 got a pretty good response from retro enthusiasts and NES Remix 2, which was released earlier today, won over a good number of critics, while die-hard Nintendo fans are excited to get their hands on it. So I'm going to ahead and wager there will be a demand to see classic games from sister and successor platforms featured in Remix compilations. 

Besides, it'd be really cool to see what the kinds of crazy alterations Hayashida and his team could make to such gems as Super Mario World, Super Mario Land, A Link to the Past, Kirby Superstar, F-Zero: Maximum Velocity, Metroid FusionPokemon Red & Blue, Advance Wars, Donkey Kong 93', and that's just to name a few.

So yeah, Mr. Hayashida, if I were you, I'd be keeping a close eye on Nintendo's social media channels.
