About The Game

Super Punch-Out!! is a pseudo-3-D, one-on-one boxing arcade video game.

A slight update of the superb "Punch-Out!!" boxing game that features five brand new larger-than-life opponents. The player once again assumes the role of a green-haired boxer who must fight his way up through five larger-than-life boxers to earn the title of 'Champ'.

The player's in-fight boxer is again viewed from behind and rendered with wire-frame graphics (so the player's opponent can be seen). Punches, dodges and blocks must all be well-timed in order to defeat the opposing boxer. Thanks to the refined roster of new and hugely distinctive enemy fighters, "Super Punch-Out!!" is considered to be an improvement over the first game.

Additional Technical Information

Players : 1

Control : 4-way joystick (pull up on the joystick to duck)

Buttons : 3



Released in September 1984.

The image used for the background of "Punch-Out!!" (in which Mario, Luigi, DK and DK Jr. sit on both sides of the ring) was recycled for 'Super Punch-Out!!'. The only difference is that the background is in black and white.

Not to be confused with the 1994 Super Famicom game of the same name, 'Super Punch-Out!!', which is a remake of the arcade game (certainly for the ten years anniversary).

The game's title music, is actually the 'Gillette Look Sharp March'. This jingle, originally heard in Gillette radio and television commercials, was later used as the theme song to the Gillette Cavalcade of Sports, which aired boxing matches. The music can also be heard in the 1980 boxing related film 'Raging Bull' during the scene where Jake LaMotta (as played by Robert De Niro) unveils his new nightclub.
