Nintendo has announced its classic motorcross game Excitebike 64 will be arriving on the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription service on 30 August 2023.

The news was delivered in a very exciting new trailer for the critically-acclaimed classic that tries its damndest to depict the feeling of playing the adrenaline-charged game.

Developed by the now-defunct Left Field Production, the game is a sequel to the NES classic, featuring dynamic dirtbike racing and several hilarious mini-games that were ahead of its time. They include a very good Soccer mode that predates Rocket League, and the procedurally generated Desert Track, where riders need to find and put out campfires.
