Racing fans rejoice! Excitebike 64 is speeding onto Wii U Virtual Consoles tomorrow!

Originally released on the Nintendo 64 back in 2000, Excitebike 64 is both the second installment and first to use 3D in the Excite series. At the time, it was widely considered by many to be the most realistic motocross game on the market, taking great inspiration from the physics engine and intuitive controls of Wave Race 64. Featuring six unique riders, 20 stadium tracks, over a dozen stylish tricks, four player multiplayer and a course editor, there’s plenty of content for die hard racing fans to get excited over. As an added bonus, the game even packages in the original NES classic! It’s by far one of the best racing games available for the Nintendo 64 and I urge anyone who hasn’t experienced this lovingly crafted rebirth of a long dormant franchise to give it a spin.

Excitebike 64 will be available tomorrow, November 17th, for $9.99.
