The original arcade Punch-Out!! is heading to Switch on March 30. That’s when it’ll release on the Japanese eShop, anyway, which anyone can access. It’ll probably end up on other eShops around the same time as part of Nintendo and Hamster’s Arcade Archives. I’m excited!

Man I loved that game. It’s the punch out of my childhood, not the NES game. The audio was so good.
