In Japan, the eShop will launch with Excitebike for free, and it seems the North American shop will follow.

Nintendo World Report claims the eShop will launch with a free 3D Classics version of the NES Excitebike, complete with a track editor and save space for 32 tracks.

Of course, Nintendo is yet to announce its launch line-up for the eShop, which will become available late Monday/early Tuesday next week, depending on your global location. We'll have all the eShop and E3 2011 news as it happens.
