One of the biggest names in boxing returns after a 15-year hiatus. Grab
a Wii Remote controller in one hand and a Nunchuk controller in the
other and step back into the ring with a modern update of the classic
Little Mac is back! Everyone’s favorite underdog from the 1980s joins
the best of the original Punch-Out!! cast in a modern re-imagination
of the series. Players will find familiar names like Glass Joe, King
Hippo and trainer Doc Louis. These boxers come to life again in
cel-shaded 3-D, complete with hilarious fighting animations and back
stories that capture all the fun and flair of the original Punch-Out!!
The motion-sensitive controls of the Wii console mean that when
players throw punches, Little Mac throws punches as well.
Additionally, you can control hooks and jabs by combining motion
control with control-stick movement. The motion-sensing Wii Remote and
Nunchuk controllers turn real-life swings into on-screen punches, so
anyone can play. The game can also be played with classic NES-style
controls by turning the Wii Remote sideways.
Characters: Little Mac, Glass Joe, King Hippo, Doc Louis, Von
Kaiser and other unannounced favorites.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Players can obtain special
"Star Punches," which allow Little Mac to take more Health from his
rival in a single punch.
Motion Control (Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers) Punch-Out!!
uses the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to simulate throwing
punches. Use the Nunchuk to throw a left punch and the Wii Remote to
throw a right punch.
Classic Control (Wii Remote NES style) Fans of the NES version
and core gamers will be excited to see Nintendo has also included the
option to play Punch-Out!! using the classic layout from the original
NES controller. Use the 1 and 2 buttons along with the cross pad to
throw hooks and jabs or to dodge.
