Excite Truck Sequel is Coming; Nintendo Nerds Rejoice

One of the best games at launch for the Wii was the crazy fun Excite Truck. Featuring tons of vehicles, great motion controls (you steer by tilting the Wiimote), and a really fun and rewarding tricks system, it's actually one of the more memorable racing games of the last few years.

While game sales were apparently disappointing and Nintendo had been mum on the possibilities of a sequel, it looks like one is coming: Excitebots: Trick Racing.

I have no idea what an Excitebot is, but as the Excite series has quietly become a solid home for frenetic arcade racing -- including the original Excitebike, Excitebike 64, and the aforementioned Excite Truck -- this is definitely something to be EXCITED about. (Funny? No? Hehe...sorry.)
