Nintendo finally decides to bring Excitebots: Trick Racing outside of North America. 

Excitebots: Trick Racing is coming to Japan more than two years after its original release in North America.

Excitebots: Trick Racing, releasing in Japan under the name, "Excite Mou-Machine," will not see a retail release in Japan but rather be available to Nintendo fans through Club Nintendo. Wii owners can redeem 1,000 stars for a copy of the game.

There is still no word on a release in any other region. Monster Games, the developers of Excitebots, have gone on to work on Excitebike: World Rally and Pilotwings Resort.

I think Japan will really like that game more then people expect.

Possible good news for our European friends?

Now that's an awesome Club Nintendo reward!  How hard is it to earn 1000 stars, or what would the North American equivalent be for points?

crosses fingers for a 2013 CN release of Xenoblade for the U.S.

I can't understand why this game is not going to be retailed here in Japan.  :Q

Trying to get how to interpret that.

So does that mean they are going to release Xenoblade Chronicles as a club Nintendo reward in North America  :P: .

This seems like a strange way to bring the game there, but at least they're getting it because it's a good game.

To put it in NA terms, it's a 1500 point reward (you need 400 pts in Japan's CN to hit Platinum).

I hereby submit that Excitebots: Trick Racing is the best racing game. That is all.
