There are a lot of ways to create a spiritual successor to Nintendo’s classic boxing game Punch-Out!! But Pato Box, with its black-and-white noir look, mechanic-laden bosses, and half-mallard protagonist might be one of the more unique ones out there.
Punch-Out came out on Switch today! No, not Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. Not the Wii Punch-Out, either. The one that started them all, the granddaddy of Nintendo’s boxing series: the 1984 arcade version of Punch-Out. It’s worth playing if you love the series, but just be aware that it’s pretty rough around the edges by…
Genyo Takeda might not be a familiar name to Nintendo fans, but he’s been the driving force behind the company’s iconic game console hardware and revolutionary controllers, and a few classic games besides. And now, he’s getting a well-deserved lifetime achievement award.
Nintendo is re-releasing some of its arcade games—for the first time ever since they appeared in pizza places and laundromats of the 1980s—on Nintendo Switch, beginning with Mario Bros. this month.
Genyo Takeda has worked on some of Nintendo’s most iconic games, consoles, and tech. As of this June, the 68 year-old is stepping down.
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.
Proving once more that scrappy hero of Punch-Out!! is actually a dirty cheater, Redditor midwesternhousewives shares the story of the bearded crowdmember whose nod tells Little Mac exactly when to knock out Piston Honda and Bald Bull the second time around.
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…
