EU VC Update: Super Punch-Out!!

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

Just as Nintendo of Europe announced yesterday, today only brings one new game, but it's a great one!

Super Punch-Out!! is the fourth game in the Punch-Out!! series. It's got a total of 16 opponents, both old and new, spread out across four circuits of increasing difficulty. The gameplay is pretty much exactly the same as in previous games, but there are some new features - If you get several succesful hits in a row you can now throw super-strong punches until you take a hit yourself. There is also a time trial mode in which you can practice against any of the opponents you've already fought to get the attack/dodge timing down.

Sadly no other games have been gotten out of the way, but at least you can now prepare for Punch-Out!! on the Wii, which is out in just 2 months!

No comments yet... why not be the first?
I'll try (and won for once)...Copy and paste from the previous news.

My goodness...0.5 VC games a week. I'll hold out false hope that "NOE forgot to upload the other game" but for now...

Curse that Master System and Commodorre 64 its all thier fault!!!

we're jealous of you americans and your one VC game every week. you don't know how good you have it.

Super Punch Out is indeed a good game but as the only game in two weeks, it certainly does come with a sour taste.

Quanity or quality? I'd say quantity is most preferable. Those good games have to come out at some point and the more games that come out at a time, the more likely it is that we'll get a good game. I'd rather have three bad games in a single update than those three bad games spread over the period of three weeks.

It's one of the better updates of recent times but when you realise that you can get GC fight night which has this game built into it for about the same price it becomes less attractive.

wait... maybe its only one game because of the Hanabi Festival coming up soon? How many games are said to come out during then? About eight? And past Festivals have taken place over three straight weeks (including WiiWare weeks) so maybe they took a game slot from this week to save for Hanabi.

Hey Will, nice to see you being happy with a VC Friday again. I remember quite some posts from you, showing an ever growing disappointment or does my memory betray me here? ^^

On the actual subject: 1 game is nowhere near enough and spending 800 points on a game that could also be had in Fight Night Round 2 for probably about the same price or even less and also be playable on the Wii is not what I call a bargain...but at least it's a pretty good game, so it's still better than the Double Dribble week. ;)

Sadly I won't be downloading this.... but does it mean we're going back to a game a week? Well, I can dream can't I?

Still, it is a pretty good game. Enjoy.

Nothing wrong with your memory KeeperBvK. There hasnt been anything I even considered donloading since I downloaded Mayhem in Monsterland back 17th October! O_o But this would be something I would splash the euro on here.
I would be a quality over quantity man myself.

Great game, but only one game every other week sucks. If a festival is coming next time, though you could be getting a crapload of imports, which would make up for those feeling left out.

Lucky dogs! And hey, you guys deserve a good game for once! :) Too bad it's the only one you got...

@Starfox. You make it sound like that's a bad thing...

We're not supposed to get this game anyway we're getting TG-16 imports supposedly.

I can't believe we only got one game this week.

Although Super Punch Out is a good boxing game for the SNES it's very unfair to people who'd rather have something else alongside it at the very least.

Maybe the Hanabi Festival is next week?

This single game week might not be as bad as we're all making it. It could be a sign that Hanabi is coming soon and with it a flood of import releases.

Only one game? Wow... That sucks... I'd be upset if that were me considering I have no intention of getting this.

I have a feeling we'll get this soon as much as I don't want it just yet... I'd much rather have SSB64 first. Come on Nintendo...

We needed this one! Another good quality game for SNES. I can live with the one-game thing... but don´t make it a habit, Nintendo ;)

You know what, though? Even though NA got two games in the past two weeks this update still blows away what we got. Better one good game than two poopy ones.

They will, DR. Hanabi is coming up any time now. Theres eight games to be released during about three consecutive weeks. Things will be good for us then.
