Forget about these visuals coming to 3DS.

You can forget about the NES Remix series appearing on Nintendo 3DS because the handheld simply doesn't have the horsepower to make it happen, Nintendo game director Koichi Hayashida has told IGN.

"In order to accomplish what we wanted with NES Remix, and get the effect we wanted out of it and the value that we wanted it to have, we needed some more machine power," Hayashida explained.

He continued: "I think the Wii U offered that up for us pretty easily, and it just would have been more difficult to do it for the 3DS."

"It's just that the Wii U had the machine power we were looking for in order for us to build the software we envisioned from the get go."

NES Remix 2 launches this week on the Nintendo Wii U eShop. Analysis

So there you have it: 3DS simply doesn't have the machine power needed to run a jazzed up compilation of 8-bit titles.

Obviously NES remix isn't just NES games, it's representing a version of old NES games with a lot more going on in the background. No doubt if they worked it from the ground up they could make a specific handheld version, but it would be a whole new game.
