A brief history on the Punch-Out!! series

See also

When Nintendo announced last week that Little Mac, star of the Punch-Out series, is going to be in the next Smash Bros, this writer thought it was time to discuss the series’ history. This month actually marks Punch-Out’s 30th Anniversary since its initial release in arcades in February of 1984. There are two arcade titles, three console games, and a spin-off arcade title called Arm Wrestling, which was coincidentally Nintendo’s last arcade game that they made.

Punch-Out has stayed somewhat relevant thanks to re-releases on Nintendo’s various Virtual Console platforms along with fan projects and videos. However, Nintendo needs to step up its game for Punch-Out’s 30th. The last game was for the Wii in 2009 for crying out loud. How about a proper sequel, or even a HD re-release for the 3DS, or the Wii U?

To those that have never played a Punch-Out and to the fans out there, watch this brief retrospective video on the series. Perhaps Nintendo will be inspired by it to release something new. Come on Nintendo; don’t let your Punch-Out fans down.
