I loved Excitetruck, one of the first wave of Wii games when the console launched. It wasn't anything deep or meaningful, just a great race through an arcade landscape with big trucks, boost and huge jumps. While it had local multiplayer, it lacked online play.
Well, Excitebots is a sort of sequel. Instead of trucks, though, you'll be racing transforming robot animals (really!). The same boost and points systems will be there with transforming landscapes and everything, but there are now more modes and better tracks, but more importantly it now has online games. yey!
The metacritic reviews are looking good already.

Looking forward to this one a lot. Excitetruck caught me by surprise when it turned up from lovefilm, and the addition of online racing means that I may well have to try and buy this one.

I loved ExciteTruck! For some reason it had something that made it unique and with the time trials and etc made the game excellent.
With online play this will make the game better, though I wouldn't mind a ExciteTruck sequel with online play itself.

I'll be keeping an eye on this game.
I've found this picture on Brawl in the Family

An eye? I'm sure you're quite content in playing it before we can with your l337 hackin' skillz.
I, like many, also loved Excite Truck and look forward to Excitebots.

Ian, weren't you demonstrating this game in action to me via MSN webcam not long ago?

This game is going to be wicked. Excite Truck was very addictive, and this game is heading the same way?

Apparently Excitebots might not come out in Europe...
