Wii Excited by Truck racer

Indirect Excitebike sequel speeds onto Wii in the form of monster trucker Excite Truck. Screens here

Even though we enjoyed Nintendo oldie Excitebike, we can't help but feel that Excite Truck sounds like one of the most ironic gaming titles ever. Is there anything to get excited about in a truck racing game?

Well, very possibly actually. This new Wii announcement may feature basic accelerator and brake button control, but by tilting the Wii Remote, you'll find yourself with a makeshift steering wheel used to physically steer your beast.

Add into the equation massive jumps, bigger landings and off-road courses that get deformed in real-time, and Excite Truck may actually be reasonably exciting after all. No details on release date or number of players yet, but stay tuned.
