Excitebike: Bun Bun Mario Battle (エキサイトバイク ぶんぶんマリオバトル Ekisaitobaiku Bun Bun Mario Batoru: noting that "bun bun" is a Japanese onomatopoeia for buzzing sounds - in this case, produced by the motorcycles - this title can also be understood as simply "Excitebike: Mario Battle") is a remake/adaptation of the NES title Excitebike. All the motorcyclists in the game were replaced with Mario characters. 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 playable character.
There are six main characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Wario and Yoshi. Red and Green Koopa Troopas appear as non-playable opponents. Wario appears as a non-playable opponent as well in Episode 1, but is playable in all subsequent episodes.
Like many other Satellaview games, Excitebike: Bun Bun Mario Battle was released in four installments (called "Stadiums").
Notably the list shows the second half of the series being released half a year later;
The likely time of broadcast was 7PM. The program may have re-aired various times, but exactly when or how many times is uncertain.
