    Gametrailers TV revealed an exclusive new, uh, game trailer last night for the upcoming Punch-Out!! for the Wii. The first half of the trailer is mostly recycled stuff from the first Punch-Out!! trailer, though on the back half we get our first look at the game's split-screen two-player mode, as well as Little Mac's transformation into Giga Mac--a hulked-up, caveman-looking version of the pint-size pugilist that will only appear in the game's head-to-head mode. My feelings for the original Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! run deep enough that I can't offer any kind of rational commentary on these new additions, though I will say that the fighter patterns are so intrinsic to the Punch-Out!! experience that I'm a little skeptical about how a two-player game will play. Either way, check out the trailer to see it for yourself.

    Looks okay. I don't know if I'll get this, but it might be something I'd enjoy playing.

    Also, woo! 3D NSMB!

    Oh I think it will work out fine Ryan. I can see this mode getting the most attention easily.

    I cannot wait for all the trash talking that will ensue in my household while playing this. It should be awesome.

    I'm not sure with this game, I've never played Punch Out!! before and boxing isn't really my thing...plus, it looks really easy. I might rent it sometime.

    I cannot stress how badly you need to rectify that, the original on NES is awesome fun. It may seem ridiculously simple a game, but don't underestimate the fun you can gain from it. It has something quite endearing about it.

    This is not real boxing, clicking left and right an two buttons does not constitute as boxing :), not that anyone cares.

    Anyways, it's good that the game is offering more modes of play. Seriously, would you be happy with Punch Out! if all you got was just the single player mode?

    This is the first time I see the addition of extra stuff counted as a potential bad thing... Even if the head to head mode isn't something that will last until the end of time, surely it's nice to have the option? I'm certainly intrigued to see how it plays knowing you can't simply have a set pattern to expect from your opponent. Giga Mac looks cool and only appears in the multi player so it's not like they mess with the meat of the game which remains true to its legacy. It's just too bad they couldn't call him Big Mac. And yes it's too bad the first half of the trailer is recycled, but hey, I'd rather play it for myself than see all the fighters and victories on video. I don't get what the "uh" was about there either. Am I missing something?

    There's also the SNES Super Punch-Out!! for 800 points. I love it and without any nostalgia as it was my first time playing.

    Dude, what? 


    Seriously, every time I see a new game using split screen I die a little inside. If you're going to put multiplayer in your game either make it online or don't put it in at all.

    Local split screen multiplayer is the way to go with these games, any other way and you will lose a great deal of the enjoyment factor.

    More games need local splitscreen modes so I can play with my roomates and boyfriend. You know, the way games need to be played, with other people. Online's great but it just doesn't compare. Glad to see an awesome mode here.

    I'm not digging the sound effects that play when you hit your opponent, but it looks like a good looking game nonetheless.

    Giga Mac is an awesome, and very smart, idea.

    WHen playing multiplayer, and if you just faced normal mac the whole time, you'd just follow his patterns and know what he's going to do, it would get boring, all of a sudden, your opponent is Giga Mac, and you have to re adjust your strategy.

    *Thumbs Up!!*
