Excitebots: Trick Racing Races Into Retail

High-Octane Stunts, Unexpected Twists and Online Competition Highlight New Motion-Controlled Racing Game.

REDMOND, WASH.– Not even the craziest morning commute can compare to the outrageous behind-the-wheel action of ExcitebotsTM: Trick Racing, launching today exclusively for Nintendo’s top-selling WiiTM console. Combining high-speed racing thrills with gravity-defying stunts and support for online action via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, the game pushes the full-throttle fun of the Excite franchise into the red.

Expanding upon the fast-paced action of Excite TruckTM, ExcitebotsTM: Trick Racing puts players in command of wild robotic vehicles styled to look like animals and insects. Players must drive, sprint and fly around the track to earn stars, performing wild stunts to boost their score while racing with an incredible burst of speed. The game puts the built-in wireless features of the Wii system to use, allowing as many as six friends to compete online using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Players can also trade ghost data via WiiConnect24TM and challenge each other to outdo their most dazzling tricks. Excitebots: Trick Racing uses the Wii WheelTM accessory to let drivers pick up and play with ease, combining familiar steering motions with unique special moves such as turbo bursts, power slides and huge jumps.

As if tearing around the track wasn’t entertaining enough, Excitebots: Trick Racing also engages players in a set of wild in-race mini-games. Drivers may find themselves smashing through a set of bowling pins, hitting a clown in the face with a pie, hitting a baseball or assembling a sandwich by twisting the Wii Wheel to maneuver their racer through a series of specific ingredients - all while navigating the track and trading paint with opponents for position. For longtime gamers and newcomers alike, these unexpected twists help to distinguish Excitebots: Trick Racing from other racing titles and extend the game’s replay value well beyond the finish line.

Excitebots: Trick Racing offers a perfect blend of action and imagination,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The fast-paced game play and competitive challenges will satisfy racing fans, while the unique vehicle designs and unexpected mini-games make it unlike any other driving game.”

Wii owners without a Wii Wheel accessory can play Excitebots: Trick Racing using a standard Wii RemoteTM controller. Broadband access is required for online play.
