Excitebike 64

Description official descriptions

Excitebike 64 is an update to the original Excitebike, for the NES. The outrageous jumps and precision timing required in the original have been translated into a modern 3D racing game.

There are several game modes to choose from. First, there is a season mode with multiple skill levels. Completing a 5-race season in first place unlocks special tracks and more difficult classes. Second, there is a exhibition mode which allows you and up to 3 other people to choose a single track to race on. Third, there is a time trial mode in which you try to get the best times on the 20 tracks.

Finally, there are multiple special tracks. Some of the special tracks include a point-to-point race through the desert, a hill-climb competition, motocross soccer, and a pixel-perfect conversion of the original Excitebike. Excitebike 64 also includes a track editor for building your own competitions.

1001 Video Games

Excitebike 64 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


According to programmer Ben Stragnell, the game was originally developed as a realistic motocross racer. Only later, when the direction was changed into a more arcade feeling, Nintendo decided to use the Excitebike license.
