The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap arrives on the Wii U Virtual Console this week in Europe, adding to the small but impressive range of Game Boy Advance titles on the system. Developed largely by Capcom, it stands up alongside its contemporaries as an excellent 2D adventure.

With its arrival just a few days away, Nintendo UK has issued a new eShop trailer for us all to enjoy, showing snippets of cutscenes, storyline and action. We say cutscenes, but much of the tale is told through dialogue boxes and the standard 2D view — there's nothing wrong with that, it has its own charm.

You can see the trailer below and enjoy Link's somewhat awesome hair animation. Are you planning to pick this up when it arrives this week?
