ESRB has given Punch Out!! for the Wii an "Everyone 10+" rating, for "comic mischief" and "cartoon violence." The description doesn't reveal much about the game we didn't know, but it does make it sound a hell of a lot like the Punch Out!! we've all come to know and love. And that's a good thing.
A new Punch Out!! is something I've been dying to see for a while; the lack of an Nintendo 64, Game Boy Advance, or GameCube game still keeps me up at night. So I have high hopes for this game, hopes of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
My biggest concern here is how Nintendo will handle the game mechanics, praying that we're not subjected to motion controls simply for the sake of having motion controls. I don't have a problem with turning my Wii Remote sideways and using it like a classic controller, Nintendo. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
