A new addition to the Excitebike series is set for release on the European WiiWare store next Friday. Excitebike World Rally echos the form of the 1984 NES original, returning to the side-on racing and level editing that assured the first title a popularity that lasts to this day.
Starring nine internationally themed settings, 16 levels and wi-fi connected multiplayer, Excitebike World Rally presents a distinctly retro-flavoured experience, and promises to offer fast, accessible gameplay and to-the-wire racing.
With a time trial-based single-player structure, the trick-focused sequel to the Excite Truck and Excite Bots boxed Wii releases includes all of the elements that have distinguished each of its predecessors, such as terrain altering power-ups and various speed boosting techniques.

Excitebike World Challenge will be priced at 1000 Wii Points in the PAL territory.
