Series Punch-Out!! Series

Rookie boxer Little Mac has to work his way up through the World Video Boxing Association. Each of your opponents each has a unique attack pattern. You have to react by blocking, dodging or counter-attacking, changing your strategy for each boxer.

By successfully countering attacks, you earn Stars. If Mac is hit then he loses any Stars he has earned, but once he has three Stars you can unleash a powerful Star Uppercut.

As well as using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, allowing you to throw punches with each arm, you have the option to use the Wii Balance Board to duck and dodge.

"Whoa, son! This kid is quick! Your blocks ain't gonna defend his new Disco Flurry. Watch out, and get out of the way at the right time!"

"Join the Nintendo Fun- I- I mean Club Nintendo today, Mac!"

In the NES Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Doc Louis would suggest you join the Nintendo Fun Club, a precursor to Nintendo Power magazine. Today, Club Nintendo is an online rewards system where you register games you buy and trade stars/coins for gifts. One of these gifts is a WiiWare title called Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! where you fight the man himself.

Donkey Kong Fight

After you clear both Career Mode and Title Defense Mode, you face one final challenger: Donkey Kong. He is referred to as "The King of Swing!" "The Leader of the DK Krew!" and "Jumpman's Bane!" (this last one referring to Mario's original name in the Japanese release of Donkey Kong arcade).

Quite a few of Donkey Kong's moves and poses seem to be based on other games he has appeared in - particularly Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.
