After Excite Truck's disappointing lack of online multiplayer (not to mention four-person local multiplayer!), we're heartened to read this terse press release from Nintendo of Canada heralding the sequel's online multiplayer mode. The deets: up to 6 players with accompanying Mii display (see pic) and the beloved Nintendo friend code system (yay!). As if that wasn't already enough information, Nintendo really got particular promising "a lot of options," "a bunch of new tracks," and "better visual effects and shadows!" We tease, of course. We're really excited to see Nintendo implementing multiplayer on the Wii (friend codes be damned!) and the Mii display is a nice touch. Oh, and one of those "new tracks" is the Moon. With low gravity.
