This newly discovered Super Punch-Out cheat code is incredible, works with Switch Online version

Super Punch-Out cheat code

This person “casually found” game-changing cheat codes for character select and multiplayer

A new string of Super Punch-Out cheat code combinations is now lurking about, thanks to community member Unlisted Cheats (who uncovers old school cheats mostly for the NES, Game Boy, and SNES systems).

The first code allows players to access a level select, likely serving as a debug feature. The next code is even more fascinating, as it lets a second player take control of a CPU opponent, to create a “versus” like system. These codes in tandem must have been really useful in testing balance changes. I’m definitely going to be playing as Narcis Prince immediately. You can find out how to use them below.

Amazingly, these codesĀ do work in the Switch Online version of the game, so you don’t need the original hardware. How’s that for relevance! Honestly, it’s been too long since Punch-Out was in the zeitgeist. I can’t believe that the last major release was in 2009!
