It’s Builders Week! Complete challenges and play great eShop games – all leading up to the release of VS. Excitebike!

I'm not sure if this is the Famicom Disk Version re-release as Virtual Console, or the WiiWare Excitebike: World Rally, or just a complete remake.
I might a actually get this.

What exactly is this? Just eShop game challenges to put up on Miiverse?...

I don't know.
But they're actually releasing Vs. Excitebike on the eShop.

I thought it was something Mario Maker related at first. The image suggests there will be Mario vs Donkey Kong Tipping Stars challenges. It's kind of strange this week suddenly comes up. I'm not sure what other games Builder's Week could feature. It's nice to hear VS Excitebike is coming to the eshop, I didn't know there was more than one Excitebike.

^It's to celebrate Super Mario Maker.
Excitebike has actually had several games.
There was a Japanese-exclusive called "Excitebike Bun Bun Mario Battle" or something like that.

What the what...?
How does this all even relate to one another...?

...sometimes Nintendo's advertising techniques confuse me.

^ Yeah I'm really confused too, I'm hoping they clear it up soon.

@SirFrozen
Yep there's quite a few as Luma said, the Wii also had 2 Excitebike games, as well as Excitebots: Trick Racing. (which I've heard is actually a decent game, but I'm not a racing fan so I never played it) There was also the N64 one.

Oh that makes perfect sense. It sounds like a nice way to celebrate Mario Maker. It's good how Excitebike has gotten quite a few games.

I'm surprised to hear there was a N64 one. The series just slipped right by me. I was never interested in those kind of games though.

Nintendo Life cleared up what version it is. 


  • This version was originally released on the Famicom Disk System in Japan, and its upcoming release will be the first time it is available in the United States

  • Unlike Vs. Excitebike for the arcade, this version has a track editor, where you can use 20 different parts to create tracks and race on them against your friends in 2-player split screen

  • This Famicom version of the game also featured more tracks than the original NES version, and had music added to the single player mode

  • Vs. Excitebike will be released once the challenges in Builders Week (tweet below) are completed.

  • http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/08/vs_excitebike_is_on_the_way_soon


 It's nice to see Nintendo host a week like this for people with the builder games.
