I'm about to finish up a Punch-Out!! article for the site and I shall probably send it to Kurt by the end of the week. The games include:
Punch-Out!! - Arcade, G&W, GBA Super Punch-Out!! - Arcade Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! / Punch-Out!! - NES, Arcade (PlayChoice 10) Super Punch-Out!! - Super NES, GCN Spin-off: Arm Wrestling - Arcade
I do have a question for you guys however: Can anyone get a picture of the hidden boxer in Fight Night: Round 2 for the GCN? I don't exactly know how to unlock him (I don't own a GCN, but I played the Super Punch-Out!! for GCN and it's good). Also, am I missing anything game wise?
AWIGHT!!! You've hit upon one of my all-time favorites, Gilder. And including Arm Wrestling too, that's a nice touch! Especially since Mask X is... well, it's a bit of a spoiler. I'll cram it there. ;D
There's also another Punch-Out!-esque game on the GBA called Punch King. Don't know how good it is, but the last boss is a robot, if that counts for anything.
There's a hidden boxer in Fight Night? Punch Out related? Interesting!
Also, how much does the GC version of this go for? If there is Punch Out-ness I would like to obtain it.
I've found the GC version and all other versions of Fight Night: Round 2 for $19.99 brand new around my area. It only recently went down in price due to Fight Night: Round 3 being available now.
Yeah, turns out EA threw in Super Punch-Out!! on the GC version only because Xbox and PS2 had online. I think that's fantastic, as it is my favorite in the series. I also found some pictures found from the Nintendo Database (http://nindb.classicgaming.gamespy.com):
Also new question: How do I take screenshots for the ZSNES emulator? I'm trying to get really good shots of Super Punch-Out!! (as in boxers from the World and Special Circuit) and I can't seem to figure out how to obtain them.
I see about those other Punch-Out!! clones. It's getting progressively harder to get online seeing how I screwed up my computer on my birthday

You can map the screenshot button to anything in ZSNES, I can't remember the default. Just go into the set control screen and do it from there. I have it set to one of the shoulder buttons on my controller for easy use.
That's how you can set which button you want to take pictures. You can also press F1 while the game is running to make a menu pop up. The first option there is SAVE SNAPSHOT. You also have other options there like changing the image file type from BMP to PNG. You can also save the screenshot and move on to the next frame without missing anything (great for making animations). You also have some sound recording options in this menu as well. Just press F1 again when you're done to get back to the game.
That punch out list looks exactly like the one on wikipedia... Anyways, you got to include the NES Power Punch 2 there, as the story goes that game was going to be a (rather stupid) Punch Out 2 game but Nintendo didn't like it or just didn't want anything to do with it and Sammy was forced to release it as Power punch 2 (notice there is no part 1).
for the article right now, I only focused on the games I talked about and I did add the WarioWare Inc cameos (how could I forget those?!) as well as a quick little thing about King Hippo being on the Captain N show.
I'll try Wade Hixton's Counter Punch, Punch King, and Power Punch 2 once my computer starts working again. Thanks for the suggestions!
I have not got far enough into them to verify, but I have read that a few of the Punch-Out characters are featured as secret characters in the Hajime no Ippo 2 PS2 boxing game.
Doubtful. I do not believe that Nintendo would license out their characters to be in a game for a different console (Phillips CD-I not counting due to an agreement between Nintendo and Phillips). Perhaps they have characters that are similar to Punch-Out!! characters?
