The game is played with both the wiimote and the nunchuck having to use the nunchuck's joystick to move. The game's attacking with Little Mac has two different styles you can either use the basic attacking by moving your wii remote and nunchuck akin to Wii Sports Boxing or you can use certain buttons in conjunction to do combos and stronger attacks.
The game starts with a meeting of all of the banished heros led by Little Mac and Takamaru they tell them that there is an escape from the outskirts, a hidden passageway that was created with the start of the outskirts but is protected by many great evils.
They quickly assemble a large army by traversing through the large outskirts to find all of these warriors for their army, they travel through many hardships and battling many foes to find them.
In the final confrontation they are about to win the fight when many of the warriors from their army are suddenly rescued while only two relativly minor villains are rescued, the heros are quickly defeated and the army disbands aside from Takamaru, Bubbles, Mike Jones and Sukapon. The game ends with a scene where the four meet the banished King Charles who has just been kicked into the outskirts.
- Little Mac (Punch Out!) - Co-Founder of the resistance force of the Outskirts to escape from the outskirts. He is the one that discovered that there was a passageway that they could use to escape from. He finds himself pulled out by a giant humanlike hand near the end. Being "rescued". He is the playable character.
