Nintendo apparently has some plans for Excite Truck, as the company has filed for a trademark for the racing game franchise. Don’t remember Excite Truck? It was a Wii launch title that used motion controls to control big trucks around race tracks.

The game wasn’t a big hit and received moderately good reviews, but maybe Nintendo has some big plans for the series on the new Switch console. Or maybe they’re just remaking the old one for the Virtual Console.

Nintendo has previously released games in the “Excite” series, with Excitebike on the NES and Excitebike 64 on the N64.

One thing is for certain: Nintendo needs some more racing games besides Mario Kart. Can you believe that it’s been almost 13 years since Nintendo last released a proper F-Zero game?
