Those of you that have owned a Nintendo 64 in the past might just remember a certain racer that went by the name of F-Zero X.

There's some good news too, if you own a Nintendo Wii U you won't have to dust off your old N64 to get back on some F-Zero X action thanks to the title being released on the Wii U virtual console.

That's not all though, as the virtual console version of the 1998 racer, which costs £8.99, is the 60Hz version too meaning it will run faster than the PAL 50Hz equivalent. To celebrate the long-awaited arrival of F-Zero X on the virtual console Nintendo has released a new trailer showcasing the racer which you can view below.

Let us know if you have any fond memories of F-Zero X on the N64 in the comments.
