Looks great and the reviews from Game Informer were very positive. I'm definitely getting this game!

That looks awesome. Do they have a complete list of opponents? I wonder if Bald Bull and Soda Popinski are on there?

According to Game Informer Magazine, they are having 16 characters (I know Disco Kid is new) but they were only able to feature 6 of them. They're listed above. As for the full lineup, I'm not sure.

As for Mike Tyson, also remember that they don't need him to sell this so they save money like that, and, Mr. Dream became the replacement for Mike Tyson after the re-release of Punch-Out! because Tyson's contract expired - even back 20 years ago, they didn't need him any more. ;)

Super Macho man was a punk. You could take him out in about 40 seconds if you don't get hit by him. I always had the biggest problems with Sandman.

You mean, you don't play with your Wii on a daily basis? If you're not going to play with it, you should at least let others play with it. :laugh:

It releases today! Anybody get the chance to play it yet? I had it reserved at a GameStop in Schertz, TX, but I had to come to Missouri so I have to wait for a friend to ship it to me.
