I’ll make a deal with you, Nintendo: I will promise to buy any console that you release, if you will promise to release a new Punch-Out!! game on it.
Last year, Mike Tyson played the old-school boxing game named after him, purportedly for the first time. He beat Glass Joe in that effort. This time, he's facing a lot somebody tougher: himself.
Super Smash Bros.' inclusion of the Slight White Hope—aka Little Mac of Punch-Out!!—raises several interesting questions, from how his natural brawling skills will help him in the game to how his short stature might hinder him. Here to answer it all is GameXplain, with a detailed breakdown of the latest trailer.
Welcome to the fray, Little Mac. Punch-Out's main character will join the cast of the next Smash Bros., to be out on Wii U and 3DS later this year. Nintendo announced the news during their Nintendo Direct this afternoon. No word on King Hippo or Mike Tyson.
Watch as artist Chris Carlson brings King Hippo from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! to life using nothing but chalk on pavement. Not bad!
Yesterday we pointed out that the Dallas Stars of the NHL now play Street Fighter themes whenever things get a little rough on the ice. Turns out there's more of a video game connection here than meets the eye.
Exercise sucks. Exergaming sucks. If you're a video gamer who has set a resolution to lose weight, you have a long, hard road ahead of you in 2014. Or, more likely, you have a very short one before you give up.
Mike Tyson never beating Glass Joe is one thing. He's the first opponent in the boxer's titular Punch-Out!!, so this means Iron Mike played the game once or twice, gave up, and went back to tending pigeons in his spare time. But not being able to defeat King Hippo is a different brand of shame.
Glass Joe is the first character you face in Punch-Out. He is, without a doubt, the easiest opponent. Anyone can beat him. But can Mike Tyson?
The case has been made that, without his freeze breath, super-speed or invulnerability, Superman really ain't that tough. In the famous 1978 Superman vs. Muhammad Ali comic, a de-powered Kal-El had to face up against The Greatest of All Time and got smacked around by the champion. But, when you compare Ali to Little…
Video games from the 8-bit and 16-bit era mixed with real life environments look awesome, and it's a technique that lets anyone's creativity shine. It's something that Kotaku has covered before but it would be a mistake to not share the new ones.
Lots of Kickstarter video game projects come over the transom here every day, a lot of them wishful thinking. So it's rare to see one that is both a great idea and eminently attainable, but that's my gut feeling about a coffee table book celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
Two fighting games, a PopCap puzzler, and a minigolf game that's trying way too hard to catch your attention? There's only one place such a diverse lineup could thrive.
The same folks who made that amazing Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening animation in Mojang's hit sandbox construction game have come back with yet another homage to an old-school classic. MinecraftA2Z managed to recreate Punch-Out's first bout—where series hero Mac trades blows with Glass Joe—by manipulating…
Confirming our August 8 report, Nintendo confirmed today that Super Mario Galaxy, Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged and Punch-Out will sell for $20 starting August 28 as part of the Nintendo Selects line.
Wii owners, you may soon have four new games to play at budget-friendlier prices. According to retail sources, Nintendo will update its "Nintendo Selects" budget line with Super Paper Mario, Mario Strikers Charged, Punch-Out!! and Super Mario Galaxy in August.
In 1987, Mike Tyson starred in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, a Nintendo boxing game that featured over-the-shoulder pugilism. Now, in 2011, Mike Tyson stars in Mike Tyson - Main Event, a boxing game that features over-the-shoulder pugilism. Only now, there's no Nintendo.
