The Wii U Virtual Console iteration of the GBA title, F-Zero: GP Legend, was already released in Europe earlier this year, and now it's speeding its way towards North America this week, after an official ESRB rating was locked in.

The original title released in the west in 2004 took F-Zero on Nintendo's portable device of the time to the next level being based on an anime of the same name and featuring a roster of 34 playable characters including newcomers and old favourites such as Captain Falcon.

If you live in North America, let us know if you'll be downloading this on release.
