Lonely fraudsters with way too much time on their hands have put together a press release and screenshots of a supposedly incoming Excite Truck 2, which Nintendo has confirmed to CVG to be fake.

Shortly after the fraudulent press release was published on an industry website, we spoke to Nintendo who made clear that the news was not genuine.

"It seems to have stemmed from an unofficial source," said Nintendo. "We have not announced any sequel in the Excite Truck series."

The game promised to boast an online racing option, as well as race courses on the moon. It's a shame - that sounds pretty cool.

The fake screens cleverly spliced together are below, if you're interested. They look cool, too.

Didn't have us fooled, though. Nope, not for one second... (cough).
