CheatCC says, "Punch-Out!! is an amazing series that has not seen a new iteration on home consoles since the Super Nintendo. This storied franchise looks to be in good hands, as Next Level Games has done their best to stay true to the series' pedigree and satisfying arcade gameplay. However, the game must build on the franchise rather than resting on its illustrious laurels. Otherwise, we may be in for a pretty version of the exact same game available via Virtual Console."
