Punch Out Coming For The Wii!

There are a few games I spent far too many quarters in as a kid. One of them was Punch Out, a boxing game that pitted you against such boxers as Glass Joe, Piston Hurricane, Bald Bull, and of course the dude at the end: Mr. Sandman. They also made versions for the NES, though it nothing comes close to the original.

It’s nice to know that the folks at Nintendo haven’t forgotten there’s a bunch of us 12 year olds in the mid 1980s that grew up to become 30-somethings wanting to relive a taste of our misspent youth. They are revamping and bringing the classic game to the Wii.

Of course, based on the trailer, it’s probably going to be different than the original arcade game, or even the weak NES version. Hopefully it’s easier to manipulate than the boxing that comes on Wii Sports, which is difficult to get the moves right.
