DOC SEZ: Did you know the Simpsons did Punch-Out!!? Yep, they sure did:

[IMG]http://i43.************/102tlrt.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i40.************/316vtjr.png[/IMG] In the episode, Moaning Lisa, there's actually a tribute to the NES and Arcade Punch-Out!! Games. Hopefully they'll do a tribute of the Wii one so we can outsell crap like Imagine Babyz Party! Give 'em your uppercut, Mac!

DOC SEZ: Did you know a group of gamers made a live-action trailer for a Punch-Out!! film?

Here's the link!

[IMG]http://i40.************/316vtjr.png[/IMG] This was Team Awesome's entry in the Nintendo Short Cuts Showcase Contest back in 2007! Their mission was to stay true to the Punch-Out game characters while molding them to fit our modern day story! Our mission is to kick Sandman's behind! Keep your head up, Mac!

Every once and a while, a game comes along that defines a generation and rarely, if ever, can a game transcend time and become a classic for people of all ages. Some will play this Punch-Out!! because they remember the old arcade game; some because they remember beating up Mike Tyson on the NES. And, for some, this will be the first time they ever play a Punch-Out!! game and Next Level Games has taken that into consideration when making this iteration. However, no matter the age, the name of the game is fun and whether or not you get a kick out of the controls, the outstanding art style, the music, or the overtly racist and all too lovable cast, there is something for you in Punch-Out!! for Wii. So, put on your boxing gloves, throw a couple practice punches, and prepare for the greatest boxing game of this generation. It's here and it's only on Wii.

I never did play Super, but I played the heck out of a friend's copy of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and finished it multiple times.

This is a disc-based game right? Just to be sure.

:lol at the hug it out thing.

The banner Ridley just tweaked a little and made it fit more with the other banners.

Your work still rocks though Kilgore. Couldn't have done it without you.

Also, it's great to know that Tiger and Piston have both been confirmed!

Spoilers on the character rosters:
Minor Circuit: Glass Joe, Von Kaiser, Disco Kid, King Hippo (in that order)
Major Circuit: Bear Hugger, Piston Honda, Don Flamenco, Great Tiger (not necessarily in that order)



Assumptions on my part for the characters in the 3rd circuit:
Soda Popinski, Bald Bull, Mr. Sandman, Super Macho Man, DOC LEWIS (World Champion), in that order! :P

Don't worry! It's two weeks ahead of the game and the Nintendo World Store will be getting it today. So right now you're good to go!

I've been waiting for a new Punch-Out!!! game for years!!!! 15 to be exact! I never understood why Nintendo didn't bring it out on the GBA with all of the other old NES titles they brough out and it wasn't on the E-Reader either.. I was sooo excited the day it was announced! Punch-Out!!! has been played in my house AT LEAST once a month since the day I got it as a Christmas gift way back in the day.

My wife is getting me all of the Amazon goodies for my birthday this month..that has got me pretty excited.

I thought it was two weeks too, but then I read the FAQ again... It's one, but who really gives a damn.

I remember seeing some mod saying it was two weeks though.

Yeah, they probably just don't want an official topic three months ahead of the games release date.

I've been waiting for a new Punch-Out!! for nearly 15 years and high expectations for what I wanted to see in a new game. This game is exactly what I wanted and is probably my most highly anticipated game of 2009 thus far.
