Once again, you'll slip on a pair of gloves and take wannabe contender Little Mac from up and coming fighter to title contender. Like the NES classic, the game features a wide array of humorous characters with distinct personalities, from the dancing fool Disco Kid to the overweight and monstrous King Hippo. With Doc Louis in your corner, you'll figure out how to beat each challenger while climbing the ranks of the World Video Boxing Association."
