One of my all time favorite video games on the Nintendo Entertainment System was Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. Who didn’t love fighting guys like Glass Joe and King Hippo. We actually had a Super Punch Out arcade machine in my house when I was growing up. My dad found it in the garbage along with an Operation Wolf game and brought them home. It was only then did he realize why they were in the garbage in the first place. The Operation Wolf game worked fine but the gun would not shoot the top 3rd of the screen which meant that you couldn’t kill any helicopters that came, thus you were screwed. And Super Punch Out was stuck on the hardest difficulty level and you couldn’t change it. It was nearly impossible to beat the first guy. Needless to say both machines were thrown out and now all we have is a 2007 Complete Golden Tee Machine (tournament edition).
But anyways, coming next year I can finally enjoy Punch Out again as it is coming to the Nintendo Wii, check out the trailer below.
