Punch Out, Virtua Fighter and Bonk hit the Virtual Console

Today's Virtual Console releases all have one thing in common: a love for violence to the head. Whether it be Bonk using his noggin as a weapon, Mac delivering that eleventh uppercut to Glass Joe or Akira Yuki landing three extra backfists on the nose of his opponent, these releases are sure to spark violent tendencies in children under the age of two and one-third.

Punch Out!, already out in Europe, is Nintendo's entrant for today's triumvirate of releases. The full serving, available on US Virtual Consoles at 9 a.m. PT, includes:

  • Punch Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream (NES, 1 player, 500 points)

  • Bonk's Revenge (TurboGrafx16, 1 player, 600 points)

  • Virtua Fighter 2 (Genesis, 1-2 players, 800 points)
