Should the Excitebike series make a return?

The original Excitebike game was one of the most well known titles for the Nintendo Entertainment System during the 80’s.  Since the 80’s the only real sequel that we have seen is Excitebike 64 which was released for the Nintendo 64 back in 2000.  When the original Excitebike game was released for the NES many people found it to be exciting yet very challenging.  Even though, Excitebike 64 looked and felt completely different from the original game many people would argue that trying to keep racers on their bikes was just as much of a challenge as ever. There were so many things about Excitebike 64 that added to the replay value of the game itself. 

The inclusion of at least 20 different tracks in season mode along with fun mini games and the ability to design your own custom track made Excitebike 64 over two times better than the original.  Since the development of Excitebike 64 many people have probably wondered why Left Field Productions never made a sequel for the Wii or Wii-U.  When Excitebike was released for the Nintendo 64 it managed to sell at least 2 million units worldwide.  If there was an Excitebike title for the Wii it could have sold at least one million units worldwide if the game developed the right way and was marketed properly.  It might be too late to get an Excitebike game for any Wii consoles but it’s not to late for the series to make a return to the Nintendo Switch.
