Punch-Out!! – exclusive boxer reveals!

Pics and videos of Piston Hondo, Great Tiger and two re-imagined favorites

That%26rsquo;s why we%26rsquo;re happy to reveal four new additions to the upcoming Wii sequel. We%26rsquo;ll have a full-blown review coming up in a few weeks, but for now, take a look at these familiar faces.

Piston Hondo


Back from the original NES game, Piston%26rsquo;s gone through a minor name change. We asked about the difference (he was originally Piston Honda) and it sounds like Honda itself might%26rsquo;ve factored in the alteration. Nothing like Mr. Honda called Mr. Nintendo to complain, just some preventative swapping.

Great Tiger is another holdover from the original. His tricks include disappearing and reappearing elsewhere in the ring, as well as a duplicating fake-out move where he tries to cross you up. Check it in the video below.
