Wii U UK Virtual Console launch trailer teases the games of yesteryear

A new trailer is out from Nintendo to commemorate the launch of the Wii U Virtual Console.

The trailer shows off some of the classic NES and SNES games to hit the Virtual Console, like Excitebike, Balloon Fight and Super Mario World, as well as upcoming titles like Street Fighter II.

It also sheds some light on the Virtual Console's features like the ability to share thoughts and nostalgic memories about the games via the Miiverse, and to create save states that can be instantly loaded at any time — a useful tool considering the brutal difficulty in some games of yore.

The Wii U Virtual Console went live late last week.
