It was the mid-nineties. You were in elementary or high school and there were no smartphones. Your life revolved around school, watching cartoons in the evenings and dedicate an extensive game of video games on the Super Nintendo (SNES). And one of the favorite games back then was Super Punch-Out!!
At that time tricks were the order of the day (month or week) thanks to magazines. You had to go to the newsstand and read what was new in some title you were trying to pass or discover a carefully hidden secret.
Super Punch-Out!! I didn’t have many. It was the sequel to Punch-Out!! of the first Nintendo console and delivering a jab or hook was the only thing necessary. Performing Y+R button combinations and then pressing A or Start allowed you to fight any character; At the time, crazy.
However, almost 28 years after its launch, it has been discovered that we could have activated the multiplayer with a cheat and thus give control to a friend or friend to play together.
The Super Punch-Out trick!!
Because retro is all the rage, this information, even if it comes late, can be useful almost three decades later. According to what you review extra lifeon the same screen of the first secret, you must press B+Y then A or Start. This combination will give you access to a new player in the match.
From the Minor Circuit to the World Circuit, these were the rivals present in Punch-Out!! on NES:
- Glass Joe (France).
- Von Kaiser (Germany).
- Piston Honda (Japan).
- Don Flamenco (Spain).
- King Hippo (Hippo Island, in the Pacific, an invention of the developers).
- Great Tiger (India).
- Bald Bull (Turkey).
- Soda Popinsky (Soviet Union).
- Mr. Sandman (United States).
- Super Macho Man (USA).
- Mike Tyson – Mr. Dream (USA).
Mike Tyson’s name was present, but when his contract expired he would be called Mr. Dream. However, the relationship was more than positive, and in later games the figure of the North American puncher remained.
For 1988, Punch-Out!! sold two million copies in the United States, one of the two Nintendo video games that reached that figure in that year. The other was The Legend of Zelda, another classic.
