Punch-Out!!! Superstar is an upcoming game for the WiiU which is considered the direct sequel to Punch-Out!!! Wii. The game features the same fighting tactics as the Wii version although the game pad can be used for old NES style attacking instead.


Aside from the standard fighting controls which function the same when using the Wii Remote & Nunchuck or the Gamepad the Gamepad will interestingly have its screen show NES style versions of Little Mac and his opponent. When the Television is not being used, this screen is used for the actual fight.

Like in the previous games, by performing punches at specific instances the player is able to gain the ability to perform star punches which deal a large of damage, the Star Punch now has an increased power where a one-star punch on Soda Popinski (The absolute mid-difficulty character of the game) knocks out 3/4 of his health, a two-star punch deals a knock out and a Three-star punch deals a knock out that counts for two knock outs. In retaliation there are fewer opportunities for players to gain stars for the star punches making them harder to pull off, in addition the opponents now all have a powerful ultimate move, that some are stronger variations of previous moves from the Wii game while others are completely new.


Little Mac faces the challenge of being called back into the ring after a five year depature where he and Doc Loius travelled the world. Now back to win the world Championship Title, Little Mac must face old foes and new faces and win his way to the top.

Game Modes
