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?
