THE GAME WILL LOOK NOTHING LIKE THIS

Great timing, this. I just recently downloaded Excitebike on the Virtual Console via that free-NES-game-if-you-downloaded-the-internet-browser offer on the Wii shopping channel, so the announcement of Excitebike: World Rally on WiiWare was a nice surprise. It still takes place on a 2D plane, but with a 3d makeover, and the inclusion of online multiplayer and track editor makes this a day one purchase for me. The original is a forgotten classic, and Excitebike 64 wasn’t too shabby (Virtual Console, please) so here’s hoping that, unlike Excitebots, this actually makes it over to Europe. Preview at IGN is HERE. Trailer is in the video below, skip to 0:55 and avoid the irritating presenters if you don’t want to lose the will to live.
