  • Despite Mike Lamb from developer Left Field Productions stating that Excitebike 64 sold 2 million units, this probably was a mistake as Nintendo has publicly reported all 1st party Nintendo 64 games that have sold at least a million to the CESA Games White Paper, and Excitebike 64 was never listed.[9]
  • Excitebike sold 1.57 million in Japan alone.[2]
  • Excitebots: Trick Racing was only released physically in North America, was available as a Club Nintendo reward in Japan, and not released at all in PAL regions.
