The earlier Nintendo years were known for a bunch of games like Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong. The original entry in the Excite series - Excitebike - might not have had the same level of success as other games, but the retro dirtbike experience is still a fan favourite years later.

With several versions of the game already available on existing Nintendo systems and even within other games, the latest issue of Famitsu has revealed Hamster will be bringing Arcade Archives VS. Excitebike to the Switch this fall. The title was previously released on the Wii U in 2015.

VS. Excitebike appeared on the Famicom Disk System in Japan in 1988, and while the core game remains intact, there's also the ability to create custom tracks and race against friends. This latest release joins various other Arcade Archives entries such as VS. Super Mario Bros. Each of these releases typically includes online leaderboards to add replay value and make the experience more competitive.
