It's not long now until Mario Kart 8 gets its first helping of DLC, and to keep you keen Nintendo has released a video which shows off the amazing Excitebike Arena course — inspired, of course, by the NES game Excitebike.

The course is packed with bumps which are perfect for trick boosts, and even features a massive status of the original biker from the 8-bit classic. Check out the footage and screens below and let us know your own personal excitement level by posting a comment.
