Punch Out for the Wii

Okay, I admit it. I’m not the best when it comes to video game news and getting around to new games. Bioshock is still on my shelf in its original wrapping. But how in the world did I miss the fact that Nintendo delevloped a new entry to the Punch Out series, exclusivly for the Wii. The party system and one of my favorite classic games, together at last?

Punch-Out!! Wii came out in the middle of May (so I’m not too late here) and features just about all of my favorite characters form the original game (you didn’t expect Tyson to be back, did ya?) and a few from SNES’s Super Punch Out.

In the new game you have the option of using the controller in the traditional Nintendo style, or you can use the Wii Remote, Nunchuk, and Balance Board to physically fight your way through the game.  The game also has a two player mode, so you can beat the tar out of your friends.
