Punch-Out!! Tourney Now Officially Worth Competing In

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Elusive and possibly magical pink hoodie up for grabs

Remember that Punch-Out!! tournament on Saturday at the Nintendo World Store in New York? Well, things just got a little more interesting.

For the truly video game fashion-conscience, GoNintendo unearthed a tantalizing tidbit from the official WVBA Boxing Twitter feed with pictures of Lil' Mac's pink hoodie IRL. Then, two hours later, hopes were dashed for non-competitors:

Sorry folks, Mac’s pink sweatshirt isn’t for sale. Only the most skilled boxers at Saturday’s Punch-Out!! Challenge will win the threads.

Sad pandas for the rest of us, but at least it's a prize worth competing over for the diehard Punchies out there.

Well, of course this isn't the REAL reason you compete--if you win the competition you win the game two days early. That being said, this pink hoody made me wish I lived in NYC even more! All my friends say I look just like Little Mac (mostly because of the hair, and because I'm pretty short), and that pink jumpsuit would be the icing on the cake!

The caption under the hoodies should say "Join Club Nintendo today Mac!". He really does say that in the new game. :3
