Nintendo has collected some of the most-famous scenes and levels from its 8-bit era Nintendo Entertainment System games for a new Wii U title.

The game is NES Remix, and it takes classics like Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, and Excitebike and mixes and matches their most recognizable parts for a series of minigames. For example, one game has Link trying to conquer Donkey Kong. Another has Mario trying to beat world 1-2 from Super Mario Bros. in reverse.

It features full Miiverse integration, and players can share their thoughts or taunt their friends with their high scores.

NES Remix is available now on the Wii U eShop for $15.
