The classic NES Excitebike is heading to the eShop with 3D graphics and the ability to save dozens of self-created tracks.
When the eShop launches on the 3DS on June 6, gamers will be able to download Excitebike, the first 3D Classic, free of charge for a limited time.
The enhanced NES port will feature two racing modes. You have the choice of racing alone to get the best time, or facing a slew of rival bikers and catching lots of air while trying to get first place.
Although the original NES version featured a track editor, the courses you created could not be saved. The 3DS edition will allow users to save up to 32 tracks.
The other big change is the ability to watch all the action in 3D. Players will have the choice of adjusting the depth with either the 3D Depth Slider or directly in the game.
Nintendo had already announced the game would be free in Japan. The length of time that the title will remain free is unspecified, and the price after the introductory period is currently unannounced.
