G4 got a live demo of Punch-Out!! for the Wii from Nintendo Rep Todd Buchele. Check out the video to see how the game takes advantage of the Wii's motion controls and more.
"once you have acquired a star punch, you do MASSIVE DAMAGE"
looks pretty fun
Mario should still be the ref
But i want to play Nintendo games without motion. I hated shaking the remote to play Zelda and Mario.
It's probably you and all the other overly self-conscious people.
Yh same, for people like me who have been playing with gamepads since the nes, the motion control sucks....
IGN loved the classic controls and said the motion controls were great as well.
You guys just suck at it, and don't want to try it. It's kind of sad. I don't think it's the controls that are horrible, but some people are too insecure to look silly once in a while.
So they just updated the game with Wii graphics, and made the remote/nunchuk controllers into giant A and B buttons. Nintendo just continues to innovate. Mario Paint me impressed.
IGN had a awesome hands on. This is a true Punch-out! after all. :)
a great example that gameplay will always be more important then graphics. Glad to see you have come to terms with that eagle21, gj! ;P
sucks.. I would actually buy a wii and these games if motion was an option... I loved PunchOUt for the NES.
The "classic NES" style is in the options too! Go to IGN.
Reading before you talk will give you more than three bubbles.
Excellent comment, bubbles for you, thing is the new "cool thing" to do is bash on wii games news, they always go, oh it svcks, oh damn motion based control, oh damn graphics, oh etc etc. Because they think that makes them cool, the wii has a lot of great upcoming games and punchout!! is one of them. I wonder why people can't love all 3 consoles, or at least 2 of them, why for 1 console to be good the other has to be bad? why do you kids new to justify your console by pissing on someone elses. Damn "toy of the kid" syndrome. I love my PS3 and I love my wii.
Relax.. I was not bashing? where is the bashing in my comments? If it does.. than great; this will be an must buy. I assumed it was Motion only because lots of other games are motion only. Get it? Read my comment it was not bashing... it was NOT awareness.
holy crap i love how no one follows news here.........this game has the classic nes style control as an option. People if you really loved this game you would follow its news. Meaning when it comes out i bet you will not be buying it.
