Taking the NES classic ExciteBike and "Mario-izing it" for the Super NES, Nintendo brings BSX owners the ExciteBike: Bun Bun Mario Battle Stadium series. In this series, Wario, Toad, Mario, Luigi, and four Koopa Troopas hop on dirt bikes and race for first place as familiar enemies fill the stands, Piranha Plants line the track, and engine-cooling mushrooms and Coins sit on the track. In what seems to be a frivolous addition to the game, Mario, Luigi, and Toad (and Peach, and Yoshi, appearing later) will occasionally spout one of their lines from Mario Kart 64, but of course on the SNES, the voice samples are not quite N64 quality.
After each course in Stadiums 1 and 2, the first-, second-, and third-place finishers will stand on a platform while Peach gives a kiss to the first-place finisher. When Peach finally makes her way into the racer lineup by Stadium 3, the congratulatory-kiss screen is replaced by long-jump and Boo-jump bonus games.
After Stadium 1, there aren't many changes besides a new racer for each subsequent game. As expected, the course designs change, and gradually improve as we progress through the series. Stadium 1 and 2's demos feature Mario, but to help introduce new characters, Stadium 3 and 4's demos feature Peach and Yoshi, respectively.
