Punch-Out!! Wii featuring Don Flamenco?

Punch-Out!! Wii featuring Don Flamenco? photo



The stalwart heroes over at GoNintendo are reporting that the new issue of Game Informer will have some juicy new details on the upcoming Wii release of Punch-Out!!. Chief among these is the revelation that Don Flamenco from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! will be making an appearance in the game. No word on whether or not you'll be able to defeat him in your first meeting with alternating jabs but his toupee is reportedly going to be returning.

Another character slated to take up the gloves again is Bear Hugger, the grizzly-looking redneck who boxed the ears of many a player in Super Punch-Out!!. The memorable expression he makes when punched in his indestructible gut (which always makes me think of Deliverance for some reason) will be present. This means that I'm going to have nightmares for a little while but it'll be worth it.

Now, while I'm quite clearly all about the nostalgia thing, it's worth noting that we haven't heard about a single more than one new character in this game. Everybody we've either seen or heard about to this point has been in the series previously (except Disco Kid). So, where are the new characters? Will players (this means you people) be satisfied with an updated game using a roster consisting entirely of boxers we've seen before?

[Editor's Note: Okay, okay, I completely forgot about the existence of Disco Kid when writing this story. Apologies to anyone who has been misled]

MLB 15 The Show is all about realism

If you've been on the fence about MLB 15 The Show and whether or not it truly represents the splendor and majesty of America's game, then let this video be the deciding factor in your curiosity. Just as in real life, ball boys can be tricky little bastards. If you don't keep your eye on them, then this type of shit happens.more

Now batting, Herb Guy

I'm still playing MLB 15 The Show for our review. Instead of going to my PS3, uploading my Road to the Show shortstop to the Cloud, then importing it into my PS4, I stayed put (they're in different places) and made a new pit...more

Minnesota Timberwolves go old school with Rubio Kart 64

Since Nintendo loves content creators so much, let's keep this Mario Kart 64-inspired video by the Minnesota Timberwolves on the down low. Ricky Rubio must love it, though, because it's going to be the only chance he has to actually win something meaningful. [Via Facebook]more
