Excitebike: BunBun Mario Battle Stadium (エキサイトバイク ぶんぶんマリオバトルスタジアム) is an obscure remake/adaptation of the NES title, Excitebike. In this game, all human bikers were replaced with Mario characters. The game was somewhat based on the Mario Kart series. As a Satellaview title, Nintendo developed the video game and released four versions of it through the satellite download service operated by St.GIGA, each expanding on or replacing the features of the last.


There are four different episodes of the game, each adding a new character.

  • Episode 1 featured: Mario, Luigi, and Toad.
  • Episode 2 featured: Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Toad.
  • Episode 3 featured: Mario, Luigi, Wario, Princess Peach, and Toad.
  • Episode 4 featured: Mario, Yoshi, Wario, Princess Peach, and Toad.


There are six main characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Wario, and Yoshi. Red and Green Koopa Troopas appear as non-playable opponents.
