Introducing Punch-Out!! Wii's Giga Mac, he will break you

8:40 AM on 04.10.2009 // Nick Chester

If burying your drill in things or shooting Helghast aren't your things, don't worry -- GameTrailers TV had you covered last night. 

Geoff Keighley and company also revealed a brand new extended trailer for Punch-Out!!, which is coming to Wii this May. Clocking in a nearly two minutes, there's quite a lot of gameplay to be seen, along with a slew of characters both new and old. But the "big news"? Giga Mac, a character available in the game's versus mode that once activated becomes a big, monster version of himself. Think the Incredible Hulk, only with boxing gloves. 

I'm not entirely sold on two-player Punch-Out!!, and Giga Mac sounds like some bizarre fish/meat combo burger I'd be able to eat at a Japanese McDonalds. But I loved how familiar Punch-Out!! felt when I played it at GDC, and I can't wait to play more of it. Check out the new trailer after the jump.
