GamesOnNet writes: "The Punch Out!! series is one of Nintendo's oldest franchises, reaching back to the company's short-lived days as an arcade manufacturer. The series has been on a rather lengthy hiatus since the 1994 release of Super Punch Out!! for the SNES, but with positive reactions to Little Mac's cameo appearances in other Nintendo products, we're getting our long awaited sequel. Nintendo has turned to European developer Next Level Games (the guys responsible for Mario's two forays into football) for the Wii incarnation of Punch Out!! It might play a little bit on one's sense of nostalgia, but Punch Out!! for the Wii well and truly exceeds our expectations."
