The Original Arcade Punch-Out Plays Great On Switch The Original Arcade Punch-Out Plays Great On Switch

Punch-Out came out on Switch today! No, not Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out. Not the Wii Punch-Out, either. The one that started them all, the granddaddy of Nintendo’s boxing series: the 1984 arcade version of Punch-Out.

As previously mentioned, High Score Girl is getting a TV anime. It will debut this July and if this first teaser is anything to go by, it will do a spot-on job of capturing the manga’s appeal and featuring classic games.
