Hip-hop and Punch Out!!, like peanut butter and jelly

Aug 29 // Nick Chester

California-based emcee Murs knows what's up -- it's time ya'll recognize the fury that was Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! for the NES.

An homage to the classic 8-bit title, this video for the Murs track "Murray's Revenge" (taken from the 2006 album of the same name) was clearly created by people who truly have a love for that particular era in gaming. With direct nods to the game itself spilled all over the screen, it's likely only a matter of time before Nintendo's legal hounds break out of their cages.

And hey -- if Taito can ressurect Legend of Kage, isn't it about time we get another Punch-Out!! title, Nintendo?

[Thanks to Jason B. and Nelson L. at GameVideos for the heads up on this one]
