Nintendo has recently filed a game software trademark for “Excite Truck” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Excite Truck, the third main title in the Excite series after Excitebike (NES) and Excitebike 64 (N64), was a Nintendo Wii launch title released back in 2006. Excite Truck was the first in the series to feature vehicles other than bikes and featured a tilt-based motion control method.
Whether or not this new trademark is a sequel to the original Excite Truck or a virtual console entry for the Wii U or indeed the upcoming Nintendo Switch remains to be seen. It is worth mentioning that Excitebike 64 came to the virtual console recently so it would make good sense if Excite Truck was to follow.
Regardless, we'll keep you updated on the latest as soon as we know more. For now why not take a look at the trailer for Excite Truck from 2006 below.
