Where Have You Gone Mike Tyson?

Rubinville reader Alphonso just sent me this preview of the new Punch-Out game on the Wii. Take a look and then we'll discuss...

Pretty cool, right?

So, yes, as you can see, they did drop Mike Tyson from sponsorship. Apparently, he had been demanding that he would have a special "ear-bite" move and would be able to butt-rape The Bald Bull. Since Wii is a family game system, Nintendo balked at those demands.

Despite getting rid of Tyson, they did keep the snappy theme music, though with a slightly faster version. Too bad I'm no longer assistant manager of Electronics Boutique or maybe I'd have early access to a copy of the game.

Did I just really say that?!

Yes, yes, I did...
