Nintendo has it slated for a February 21 release for ¥500. It’s already available on the Wii Virtual Console, so we’ll probably see the 3DS version internationally, too.

Today though, two more have popped up and that’s reason enough to post we reckon.
Head on over to Eurogamer Germany and take a look.

The official Italian Nintendo site’s confirmed that the upcoming Punch Out!! is to feature Balance Board support, IGN reports.
From the piece:
A rough translation confirms that Wii Balance Board, the controller included in Wii Fit, will be utilized in Punch-Out!! to dodge and weave by players shifting their weight. The Balance Board will be utilized in conjunction with the standard Nunchuk and Wii Remote controls.
Expect the game to feature in Iwata’s keynote today at 9.00am PST (4.00pm GMT).
It’s out in May.

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.
