E3 '07: Nitrobike boosts onto Wii

Ubisoft bringing arcade racer exclusively to Nintendo's console this holiday season.


SANTA MONICA, Calif.--Pokémon Battle Revolution first took the Wii online in June, but Wi-Fi-enabled games for the system are still few. During today's E3 Media and Business Summit, Ubisoft revealed it would be adding one more to that list.

The France-based publisher today announced it would be bringing the arcade-style Nitrobike exclusively to the Wii this holiday season. Far from realistic, the game has players racing on rocket-propelled motorcycles. It's not all online for Nitrobike, as the game will also feature a single-player time attack and competitive multiplayer racing on the same system.

Left Field Productions will be developing the game. No strangers to the motocross arena, Left Field developed Excitebike 64 for the Nintendo 64, and more recently brought MTX Mototrax to the Xbox, Playstation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
