Nintendo Fans Duke It Out in a Punch-Out!! Boxing Challenge at Nintendo World in NYC

–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Nintendo:

WHAT:

Nintendo celebrates the return of one of its most popular video game series by hosting a Punch-Out!! Challenge at the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza on May 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. Friends and family members of contestants will gather ringside to support them on their quest to secure the World Video Boxing Association (WVBA) title. Thirty-two participants will face off two at a time in a single-game elimination competition. Instead of strapping on boxing gloves, players will use the motion-sensing Wii Remote and Nunchukcontrollers to simulate throwing punches. The winner walks away with a customized WVBA trophy and bragging rights as the Punch-Out!! champion. The winner also will receive a free copy of the new Punch-Out!! game for the Wii console, a Little Mac training sweatshirt and other prizes.

 
 

Fans in attendance will enjoy Nintendo premium giveaways, DJ entertainment and a chance to purchase the game before it launches on May 18. Fans also have the opportunity to play the new game on kiosks, or take a trip down memory lane by playing previous Punch-Out!! games using the Virtual Console service for Wii.
