Nintendo of America announced over Twitter today the release of Vs. Excitebike for the Wii U Virtual Console on August 31st. The release of the game is part of their Builders Week event. This will be a rare non-Thursday release of a Virtual console game on the Wii U eShop. Not to be confused with the NES version of Excitebike currently on the Wii U Virtual Console, this version contains enhanced features. Originally only released on the Famicom Disk System, Vs. Excitebike includes additional tracks, more music, and a track editor. Unlike the track editor in Excitebike, tracks created in the track editor in Vs. Excitebike can be saved, even when the game is turned off or reset.
