New Punch-Out!! Wii info hints a new modes, helmets photo



The first new Punch-Out!! game in almost fifteen years is about to be released, and I can't wait to play it. There are reasons to be concerned that it may be a one-trick pony, but with so much mystery still surrounding the game, it's also easy to imagine how it might still be amazing. Ignorance, as they say, is bliss.

Well, our bliss may be in jeopardy, as NintendoDpad.com has promised to give us new Punch-Out!! info every couple of days until the game's release in mid-May. Recent highlights include the revelation of new triple star, super uppercut, the method to get yourself a brand new helmet, the achievements for the Glass Joe and Von Kaiser exhibition matches, and perhaps best of all, the tease of a new mode unlocked after beating the game. 

Could this new mode see the return of green-mesh Mac? How about weird-back, anime-Mac? Personally, I'm hoping it's a HD, yucky, realistic Punch-Out!! mode; the kind that the kid version of me always thought he'd be playing in 2009. 

Hit the jump for the full list of new Punch-Out!! details, and while your at it, hit the comments and tell me what you're hoping for in this new mode. Ear-biting mode? Vodka-Drunkenski mode?

What if Ganondorf and Link were... closer?

It was fun to see how the internet reacted to speculation that Link in the next Zelda for Wii U might be a woman. The response was very similar to how I imagined the world might respond to a Blasian Link. When it was revealed...more
