One of my favorite video games ever was Mike Tyson’s Punch Out from the original NES.
I just loved fighting all those ridiculous characters. I mean how can you not love some big fat dumb boxer called King Hippo, who was impossible to beat unless you punch him in the stomach, causing his pants to fall down?
When a new version of Punch-Out!! came out for the Wii a few years ago, I must’ve given up living for a few weeks as I punched my way through round after round of bad seeds on my way to win a championship belt. Even my kids got in on the fun. They still love playing it.
Well, the little guy is back in the spotlight again, this time making his debut on the Wii U! Yep, Nintendo just announced that Little Mac will be a playable character in this year’s Super Smash Bros. Wii U! Take a look at this killer preview!
Personally, I’m atrocious at fighting games. No, really. I recall playing Mortal Kombat on the Sega Genesis when I was a kid. My mom actually took a turn and yeah, even she crushed me! Still, I enjoy playing them, and I just love how all these Nintendo characters get to fight it out under one game’s roof! My kids, on the other hand, are huge fans of Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii and can talk and fight circles around me.
Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS hits stores sometime in 2014. Yeah, I know, I’d love a little more detail on the Super Smash Bros. Wii U release date, but “sometime this year” is all we’ve got so far. This is one fight, though, that’s definitely worth waiting for!
Who’s your favorite character to fight with?
