ExciteBots: Trick Racing

As our listerners are probably well aware, I'm a huge fan of the Wii racing game Excite Truck. It was a gem of a launch title for the Wii although is was overlooked by many, which is a shame. It's hands-down the best racing game on the Wii, even better than Mario Kart in my opinion. Well last week Nintendo announced a brand new racing title that will be hitting the Wii in April. A follow up to Excite Truck. Although little has been revealed so far about it. So what is it exactly? Nintendo's brief retail description might shed some light on this:

"Get your friends together and grab your Wii Wheel (TM) accessories for action-packed raucous racing. ExciteBots: Trick Racing takes the big-air thrills and simple controls of Excite Truck (TM) and ramps up the fun with a non-stop barrage of funky challenges and mini-games performed at blinding speed. You won't believe your eyes when you find yourself shooting goals, throwing pies and even playing poker in the middle of racing robotic animals and insects around off-road tracks. "

So by the sound of things it looks like with the help of Monster Game's they are creating a racing / party game hybrid. This sounds interesting especially if it does control like Excite Truck. I hope the racing element isn't overshadowed or ruined by the party game element although I have pretty good faith that Monster Games will unleash another great racing game. I'm also looking forward to the new Wi-Fi multiplayer for up to 6 racers (or robots I guess).

So what is an ExciteBot? Read more for a glimpse at the cover to see for your self:
