Super Punch-Out!! Coming to Switch

Hamster will be publishing the 1984 Nintendo boxing game Arcade Archives Super Punch-Out!! on the Nintendo Switch eShop on August 14.

Super-Punch-Out!! is a follow up to the original Punch-Out!! arcade game, originally releasing several months after in 1984, and that introduced several new characters to the mix – all five were seen in the later NES and SNES versions. Also, look out for special appearances by Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong Junior in the audience! The Arcade Archives version is priced at the usual ¥838 / $7.99. Check out the game description below along with Switch version screenshots.

Get ready for round two of rocking, socking excitement as five of the world’s toughest fighters come to the ring in the all new Super Punch-Out!!

Take on up-and-coming champions like Bear Hugger, the brawny Canadian Bruiser with the deadly arm crush. Or the mighty Dragon Chan and his whirlwind kicks.

Only a knockout before the clock runs out will keep you in the ring to challenge the next contender. Stick and move. Keep your guard up! Dodge that punch. Now duck that swing!

The joystick and push buttons control your moves while the dual screens and live action commentary put you in the centre of the action at the greatest bout of all time.
