Nintendo's US media conference is going on right now, and the first Wii game announcement is one we've been desperate to hear. As if we couldn't guess, Nintendo's Cammie Dunaway has confirmed a North American release of Punch-Out!!

She showed a short trailer, which we're sure we'll see soon, and then said that the game will be available in "the first half of 2009." Not sure if that's Dunaway's exact wording or IGN's liveblogger, but it also doesn't matter.
