Punch-Out!! Developer Envisions, Wants SequelS

Unsurprisingly, the developer of the critically acclaimed Wii re-imagining of Nintendo's Punch-Out!! would like to make a sequel. Yes, Next Level Games enjoys steady work and continued paychecks apparently. But the proposed ideas for a sequel are what's interesting.

Next Level Games' gameplay lead Bryce Holliday tells the Official Nitnendo Magazine UK that the developer would "love to make a sequel." And here's where they'd start.

"Cooperative, competitive multiplayer support or create-a-boss mode would be places to start," says Holliday, "but we'd need to come up with a new 'hook' like the motion controllers gave us in this iteration."

Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe recently told Kotaku that the company is "not planning a sequel where simply the fighters are replaced." If fans demand a Super Punch-Out!! for the Wii it would be approached in a "totally new, different way."

As long as it's not a prequel starring a young Doc Louis and his early infatuation with chocolate bars, we're all for it. No prequels. No Baby Mac to fight. Please.
