This was one of the first games I've ever played on nintendo, many years have passed, but the game still looks really good and you still want to beat them all!

Check out last months GameInformer. You can use pretty much any control set up. Anything from Wiimote and nunchuck, Classic SNES Pad, Game Cube pad, and even just the Wiimote with it turned sideways like a classic NES pad. The controls options are there. You can play it however you want. So hopefully because of that, you won't just be flailing around your arms hoping to connect like in Wii Boxing.

I played the original back in the day, it was very fun. I hope this one is made good. I get tired after a few minutes of boxing on the wii sports.

LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVEIT! I wonder if we'll be able to use classic controls like that original?

I hate to be the pessimist here, but I'm not buying it. Sorry Nintendo. They claim to support the hardcore fanbase, and look at one example: Mario Kart, which was pathetically easy (not to mention boring), probably to compensate for the terrible, inaccurate controls which seem to be the ongoing reason for poor Wii game reviews. Who thinks this game will be any different? I have NO doubt it will be a simplified "family friendly" grandma and grandpa playable title. Unless this game allows for traditional gamepad use and not just "flail my arms around and hope for the best" because of Wii's inherently inaccurate remote, I will steer far clear. Keep going in the direction you're going Nintendo. Congrats on this being your third Wii game that actually might be worth the money. Kudos to you.

wildcatxzx, the name change was done a year before Tyson raped her. Tyson lost his title to Buster Douglas, so Nintendo opted not to renew his contract. That is why he was replaced with Mr Dream. The rape had more to do with the changes in "Power Punch II" than "Punch-Out!!"

Jatkins1177 - You said...... "Mike Tyson was never in the original arcade versions of this game. "Punch Out!" was in arcades in 1984 and "Super Punch Out!" was released in 1985. Only the 1987 NES console version called "Mike Tyson's Punch Out!" contained the real life champ, and after awhile they lost the rights to use his name so the game was re-released on NES as just "Punch Out!" with a new end boss, "Mr. Dream."..... actually I'm pretty certain that the name change had something to do with Tyson having committed rape.

@guert Yeah its so the same, except by the wii mote, the unique control wich works with the movement, you see, somepeople thinks that the games are better for the graphics... WRONG, remember the panasonic 3DO??? Or you are gonna play grand theft auto 4 with the Atari 2600 joystick, right??? because of the graphics This game looks awesome and should be the best boxing game, sorry fans, but that is true. Punch Out rocks

Mike Tyson was never in the original arcade versions of this game. "Punch Out!" was in arcades in 1984 and "Super Punch Out!" was released in 1985.

This version seems like it will be worth a look, though. It's confirmed that players will be able to choose between motion control and classic control, so even if the motion control isn't good the game should still be fun.

They better get the motion controls right on this one. If they do, it could be another classic

man this game looks awesome. Ive been waiting for a good Boxing game for the wii for quite a while. I really hope this is what I've been waiting for. The only thing that makes me nervous is wondering whether the controls will be good.

only thing good in this video is the music cause everything else is teh suck. I think the original NES version still beats that.
