Someone has defeated Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! while wearing a blindfold. Real life Jedi Jack Wedge accomplished this astounding feat this weekend. He's the first person in recorded history to conquer the titular boxer, one of gaming's most difficult bosses without the aid of his vision.
With Mike Tyson’s recently successful exhibition with Roy Jones Jr proving that Iron Mike Tyson still has some power behind those punches, discussion of a Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out 2 (Or a sequel of sorts) is properly on the table. The multi-time heavyweight champion has spoken publicly about making a new Punch-Out game for the Nintendo Switch.
Whether you have real Mike Tyson and pixelated Mike Tyson fighting for the title of “scariest human being” or you’re questioning reality thanks to a malevolent Creator, it’s safe to say that some retro game bosses are just...unsettling. :-|

"Nintendo is widely known for its deep, eclectic well of beloved franchises. From The Legend of Zelda to Wrecking Crew, there’s no library in gaming as rich in history or as popular among fans.
2019 is shaping up to be a banner year for Nintendo, with representatives from Mario, Fire Emblem, Zelda, and Pokémon all gracing the Switch platform before the year’s end. At the same time, there are still plenty of Nintendo franchises that lie dormant this generation, in desperate need of the “Switch treatment.”
While there are plenty of legendary series worthy of a revival, here are six in particular I would absolutely kill to see on Switch in the near future."
