GDC ‘09: Did the Ladies Call Him Little Mac Too? New Punch-Out!! Trailer!
Hola everyone. News on the GDC front seems a tad slow this year, but Nintendo was kind enough to show off a new trailer for “Punch-Out!!”, and it looks pretty bad ass. Little Mac returns to kick King Hippo’s butt in this nostalgic trailer. Von Kaiser and Glass Joe will also return to take on our hero in the ring, as well as a newcomer who goes by the name Disco Kid.
Is it just me or does Disco Kid remind anyone of Carlton from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”? When he dances around the ring, it looks just like the Carlton dance! Am I right, or am I right?
So far, Wii users have only been able to play “Punch-Out” on their virtual consoles, but it looks like Nintendo is taking great care in bringing this storied franchise to the Wii. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. Sadly, Nintendo has not set a date for “Punch-Out.”
Check out the trailer after the jump, and keep it here for continuing GDC coverage.
