NintendoDpad: "Is a sequel to the newly released Punch-Out!! in the works, and could it be different than what we got this year?"
What other genres could the Punch-Out characters be a good fit in? A fitness game?
I assume this sequel will play more like Super Punch-Out.
first one on wii was a sales flop, so why would 2nd be any different...
How was it a sales flop?
Look at NPD numbers and you tell me how it was not a flop...
It is doing fine for the type of game it is.
spin, spin, spin...
protip: Wii games don't need to sell 1 million units to be considered a success. If they're considering a sequel already, it's obviously a pretty good sign that the game was a success. Just because "HURR GAEM SALES =/= 1 MILLION THER4 FAIL" mostly applies to 360 and PS3 retail games, that doesn't mean it applies to Wii games.
felt more like an XBLA title to me, not a big rivial of a hugely popular franchise from back in the day.
Sadly, some people think that unless a game sells Halo-type numbers, it isn't a hit. Wii titles cost less to develop. It's why a game like No More Heroes can sell about 400,000 copies, turn a profit, and get greenlit for a sequel. If I'm not mistaken, PunchOut has sold about the same.
NMH was their best selling title so far. It outsold every PS2 game they made and did it on a much smaller install base.
Well the first one was a great game, so I hope they do bring out another.
Which was terrible once the novelty wears off!
Yeah it's much better. And there's a lot of game there for your money as well, once you become the world champion it's not over.
first one was a very good game, those who didn't try it I recomend to do it :)
I wouldn't mind seeing them change up the gameplay. Yes, I know PunchOut has been a twitch/timing game. But we've already got one of those now on Wii. Since EA doesn't seem in any hurry to make a decent Fight Night for Wii, why not beat them to the punch and make a good boxing sim? And I don't mean like the unresponsive game that was in Wii Sports. Use the nunchuck's analog stick to control the punches, just like in Fight Night. But then you can use the Wii remote for all other movement -- tilt left or right to avoid punches, forward to move and back to block.
i hope motion plus is added
