One of the most popular 1980’s Nintendo games for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was Punch-Out, a first-person, cartoonish, boxing game. Much to the dismay of fans, this game was never reintroduced for subsequent Nintendo game systems. Until now!
Punch-Out!! is getting a Wii-makeover and I can’t think of a better game to take advantage of the Wii-Remote control system. If you have ever played Wii Boxing, one of the games that comes with the Wii, then you know what I’m talking about. Both boxing titles (Wii Boxing and Wii Punch-Out!!) rely on the Wii-Remote and attached nunchuk controller to put you in the ring. Punch-Out!! will take the action a step farther by working with the Wii-Fit Balance board to allow you to dodge your opponents fists by leaning to the left and right.
Kids and adults will love this goofy boxing title, which also provides for a great workout (my sides are still sore). Look for Punch-Out!! in stores this May!
