The classic NES game punch out is being remade for the wii. It looks like it will be a fun game with all the classic characters. A little factoid about the original. The first release of the game was called Mike Tyson’s punch out which featured Mike Tyson in the last fight. The game was released around 1990 as Punch Out and the Mike Tyson character was renamed Mr. Dream. It is said that this is because Nintendo’s contract to use the likeness of Tyson had expired.
