Shigeru Miyamoto performed one of his famous “tea table flips” on Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon developer Next Level Games. Speaking with IGN, director Bryce Holliday said Miyamoto “threw out all the bosses of the game” and made the team start over. “He often challenged us to not go with our first idea, or to experiment further on different things and then cherry-pick our best ideas,” he said. The anecdote has much in common with Dylan Cuthbert’s post-mortem of Star Fox at GDC this year. The full interview feature is quite an interesting read.

You have to love it when the ESRB provides information on games before publishers do: today it did just that with Punch Out!! for Wii.
The listing describes it thus:
This is a boxing game in which players compete in boxing matches against a cast of colorful, fictional characters. While players can use standard boxing moves (jabs, hooks, uppercuts), most fights are performed in a comical fashion with an assortment of “dizzy stars,” “cartoony” sound effects, and slapstick signature moves (e.g., growling, dropping shorts, conking oneself on the head, twirling, etc.). Boxers’ faces show lumps and bruises after taking damage, and some knockouts are depicted in slow motion as players are sent flying across the canvass. One character flexes his pectoral and glute muscles prior to a fight, while another boxer belches during a cutscene.
We’ve put a call into Nintendo for release date information, so hopefully soon we’ll have more details.
The game was revealed during Nintendo’s press conference last October. Next Level’s the developer.
