Excitebots, roll out! Trick Racing is blasting onto Wii U Virtual Consoles tomorrow!

Originally released on the Wii back in 2009, Excitebots is the fourth entry in Nintendo’s underappreciated Excite series. A unique blend of racing and party games, this wacky pseudo sequel to Excite Truck combines animal themed robot vehicles and short minigames during races to create an incredibly unique experience worthy of your time. While it unfortunately ditches the six player online multiplayer modes in this release, local split-screen two-player mode remains intact and is still a blast for anyone with a buddy in tow. Give it a download if racing at blistering speeds as mechanized critters while simultaneously building a hand in poker or throwing pies at clowns sounds like your kind of Saturday night.

Excitebots: Trick Racing will be priced at $19.99.
