More Virtual Console NES goodness this week in the Nintendo Download as the boxing classic makes it’s way to the eShop- minus Mr.Tyson of course.
Even though the version of the game with Iron Mike is the one that everyone remembers so fondly, legal ranglings prevent Punch-Out!! from (probably) ever appearing again in it’s original form. Honestly, it doesn’t affect the game all that much as Tyson was only the final ‘boss’ of the NES title and he’s been replaced with the equally maddening Mr.Dream. The rest of the game’s cartoony cast is unaffected.
Looking for something else this week? There’s also Mini-Golf and a fun puzzler in Zuma’s Revenge. Even the Wii gets in on the action as an SNK classic takes the fight to the console.
- Fun!Fun!MiniGolf Touch! – $4.99 — Play minigolf with your Mii™ character and master new cups and trick-shot challenges in beautiful environments. The perfect touch-screen controls make for a fun and rewarding putting experience.
- Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr.Dream – $4.99 — Play as young boxer Little Mac and battle the big guys of the World Video Boxing Association. Take them on one by one, from Glass Joe all the way to the WVBA Champion himself.
- Zuma’s Revenge – $7.99/800 points — An irresistible force has taken our fearless frog to a newly evolved world of Zuma ruled by evil tiki bosses. Fire stone spheres to destroy the deadly stream of balls in this ball-blasting challenge.
- King of Fighters ’97 — The King of Fighters ’97 is the fourth game in The King of Fighters series, once again allowing players to combat opponents with popular characters from games such as Fatal Fury, Ikari Warriors, Psycho Soldier and Art of Fighting. The character roster changes with every iteration, and new characters in this 1997 title include Chizuru Kagura – a boss character from the previous title – as well as popular SNK characters Ryuji Yamazaki, Blue Mary and Billy Kane, plus new characters Yashiro Nanakase and Shingo Yabuki. Players can also choose between Advanced and Extra play modes to greatly alter the game play.
