When Nintendo announced ExciteBots: Trick Racing for the Wii last week, it didn’t say much. What it did say was that it’s in the Excite Truck and Excitebike family of games, and that it features mini-games, crazy tricks, and would support the Wii Wheel.
The box art, on the other hand, reveals quite a bit. For one, the game will apparently support Nintendo Wi-Fi, which likely means you’ll be racing against other players online. What will you be racing? Well, it looks like … well … wait, what the f**k is this? Are those vehicles that look like robotic animals? At the very least, you can spot a lady bug, a turtle, and what appears to be a yellow frog. I’ve gone blind at this point. You guys see anything else?
The box art also shows the “E for Everyone” rating which conflicts with earlier reports that it would be like Death Race 3000. (Note: No one actually reported that.) The box also says “Wii” on top of it, which confirms what we already know — you can play the game on the Wii. That also means it will likely be on a DVD, so there’s that.
We hope to see and hear more of ExciteBots: Trick Racing soon, because speculating on a game’s content based on the box art, while fun, is kind of stupid.
[Update: Nintendo Power has some solid info on the game, which you can check out here, and in the latest issue which hits stands on March 17.]
