It’s always great to return to the good old times of gaming. Throughout the years, we have seen some cool games, but their sequels have not been as much as fun as their original ones. Of course, there are games that have succeeded in making their sequels better. While you and your friends may not have something to complaint about Mario, Zelda, Castlevania, Halo, Street Fighter, Naruto and other game sequels, some games were forgotten.  We have not seen recent sequels for worthy games such as SNK’s Ikari Warriors (it had a few), SNK’s Crystalis, Sega’s Streets of Rage or a real sequel of Capcom’s Final Fight (with the original characters). At least we know a new version of Capcom’s Bionic Commando is making a comeback later this year (and you can play its original remake as well). Very soon though, a familiar game for lots of people will have its re-birth on the Wii. If you were playing games in the mid-to-late 80s, you can surely remember Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!!, which was later simply renamed as Punch Out!! It was a very entertaining game with a very diverse cast of comic-like character from around the world. The arcade version, known as Super Punch-Out!! was awesome to play. Little Mac, the main character of Punch Out!!, had reappeared last year in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, along with another character who, I hope, would make another comeback as well. Do you guys  remember the game NES game Kid Icarus? I want to see what Little Mac can do now. It’s been 15 years already. Siempre es genial volver a los buenos viejos tiempos de los  juegos. A través de los años, hemos visto algunos juegos chéveres, pero sus continuaciones no han sido tan divertidos como los originales. Claro, hay juegos que han tenido éxito en que sus continuaciones sean mejores. Mientras que ustesdes y sus amigos tal vez no tengan algo de que quejarse acerca de Mario, Zelda, Castlevania, Halo, Street Fighter, Naruto y otras continuaciones de juegos, algunos fueron olvidados. No hemos visto continuaciones recientes de juegos dignos como Ikari Warriors (tuvo unos) y Crystalis de SNK, Streets of Rage de Sega o una verdadera continuación de Final Fight de Capcom (con los personajes originales). Por lo menos sabemos que una nueva versión de Bionic Commando de Capcom volverá luego este año (and ya pueden jugar una nueva versión del original también). Aunque muy pronto, un juego muy conocido para mucha gente re-nacerá en el Wii. Si han estado jugando juegos entre mediados y finales de los 80, de seguro que pueden recordar Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!!, el cuál fue cambiado de nombre a Punch Out!! Era un juego bien entretenido con un reparto muy diverso de personajes de alrededor del mundo al estilo de tiras cómicas. La versión “arcade” (o “la del pinball”, “de maquina tragamoneda” o “maquina recreativa”), conocida como Super Punch-Out!! fue impresionante para jugarla. Little Mac, el personaje principal de  Punch-Out!!, había reaparecido el año pasado en Super Smash Bros. Brawl, junto con otro personaje que espero regrese también. ¿Se acuerdan del juego NES Kid Icarus? Quiero ver lo que Little Mac puede hacer ahora. Ya han sido 15 años.

One of the biggest names in boxing returns after a 15-year hiatus. Grab a Wii Remote™ controller in one hand and a Nunchuk™ controller in the other and step back into the ring with a modern update of the classic Punch-Out!!

  • Little Mac is back! Everyone’s favorite underdog from the 1980s joins the best of the original Punch-Out!! cast in a modern re-imagination of the series. Players will find familiar names like Glass Joe, King Hippo and trainer Doc Louis. These boxers come to life again in cel-shaded 3-D, complete with hilarious fighting animations and back stories that capture all the fun and flair of the original Punch-Out!! games.
  • The motion-sensitive controls of the Wii console mean that when players throw punches, Little Mac throws punches as well. Additionally, you can control hooks and jabs by combining motion control with control-stick movement. The motion-sensing Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers turn real-life swings into on-screen punches, so anyone can play. The game can also be played with classic NES-style controls by turning the Wii Remote sideways.

Characters: Little Mac, Glass Joe, King Hippo, Doc Louis, Von Kaiser and other unannounced favorites.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Players can obtain special “Star Punches,” which allow Little Mac to take more Health from his rival in a single punch.

Control options:

  • Motion Control (Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers)
    Punch-Out!! uses the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to simulate throwing punches. Use the Nunchuk to throw a left punch and the Wii Remote to throw a right punch.
  • Classic Control (Wii Remote NES™ style)
    Fans of the NES version and core gamers will be excited to see Nintendo has also included the option to play Punch-Out!! using the classic layout from the original NES controller. Use the 1 and 2 buttons along with the cross pad to throw hooks and jabs or to dodge.
