More information about the upcoming Punch-Out!! game for the Wii, developed by Next Level Games, has been let loose by Nintendo of Europe. Apparently the game will support a 2-player mode, where Little Mac can square off against himself. It has also been confirmed that the game will showcase 13 playable fighters, which is about 3 more than the original Punch-Out!!, and will include Doc Louis.

Additional information about the control scheme has also been revealed. Gamers need not fear, motion based controls are not forced, if you prefer the feel of the classic version, turn your Wii-mote sideways and play it like the original. For you wagglers out there, Nintendo has revealed that; “Punching is a simple case of taking a swing at your opponent whilst holding different combinations of buttons. Soften them up with jabs by pressing up on the Nunchuk Control Stick when you punch, or crash home a super-charged Star Punch by holding the C or A Buttons as you let your hands go,”.

Sounds pretty awesome, Punch-Out!! is currently set to be released in May 2009.

  1. Wait wait wait…..Someone told me the following a few weeks ago, and it kind of scared me. All the footage they’ve shown so far is of the old NES boxers. So basically it’s the exact same game, with only 3 new boxers, as opposed to the SNES version, where 90% of the boxers were new?

    I’m either going to be very excited or very disappointed come May.

  2. Same, I’ll probably buy it for kicks. :D

  3. I don’t how “new” we should be expected to this game to be, when Nintendo can get away with rereleasing Pikman, Mario Tennis etc.
