A portion of a GamePro interview with Monster Games President and Team Lead Richard Garcia…
GP: Do you worry the new animal focus might turn away older fans of the franchise?
RG: Sure, it is a risk, but we are certain that fans of Excite Truck will not be disappointed. Excitebots features the same big air, huge airspins, and turbo jumps as Excite Truck, plus much much more.
There are more stunts, new tracks, new game modes, new unlockables and online play through Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection. All this adds up to a stronger game than Excite Truck.
