    The latest issue of Nintendo Power teased a reveal that would pop up in this week's Nintendo Week feature on the Nintendo Channel. It looks like Nintendo has let loose with their secret, and it sounds like it was worth the wait! Nintendo Week has confirmed that 'Excitebike' is coming to WiiWare this time around! Nice to see the classic series making a return. Thanks to DSkartmasta for the heads up!

    That is it, no other information but I would assume that being WiiWare it'll be like the NES game but of course with "better" graphics. Hopefully Nintendo will add a track editor and online and hopefully it'll be something more than a remake.

    *waits for a Excitebike 64 follow up instead*

    Trailer looks sweet, hopefully the multiplayer is developed good, with different modes and so.
    In the trailer they also mention that you will be able to play the game with the Wii Motion Sensor and the regular Wiimote buttons.
    Hopefully they support GC controller too, but I highly doubt it.
    Looks awiisome!

    Wait for the Tron remake.

    Seems alright. I haven't played the original Excitebike yet but this looks interesting.

    wiiware looks to have alot more effort put into it compared to the regular wii games, and it just proves that alot of the companies are just damn lazy.

    I'm really happy about this. For me it's certainly one of the best Wii titles this year! I loved both ExciteBike games, and this one won't disappoint.
