Nintendo Plans To Re-Release ‘Punch-Out!!’ Without Mike Tyson

In the mid-1980s, Mike Tyson had started to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in the boxing world and caught the attention of a Nintendo executive who was in the stands at one of his fights.
In 1987, the world was introduced to Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, a game that would go on to frustrate an entire generation of children like myself who were still working on perfecting that whole “hand-eye coordination” thing.
In order to beat the game, you had to be able to channel your inner Patches O’Houlihan and dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge Tyson’s brutal flurry of punches, which was much easier said than done.

Nintendo is planning to re-release the game on Switch later this month.
However, there’s one minor catch: Mike Tyson won’t be making his return.
Nintendo originally only licensed the boxer’s name for three years, and after that, he was replaced by a character dubbed “Mr. Dream,” who had all the same moves but sorely lacked any gaps between his teeth. You might be sad to learn the “new” version of Punch-Out!! will feature Mr. Dream instead of Tyson but there’s one person in particular who seems to be especially peeved: Tyson himself. After the re-release came to his attention, the boxer-turned-marijuana enthusiast hopped on Twitter to share his displeasure and encouraged others to do the same.

Tupac Is Alive According To A New Photo

IF TUPAC SHAKUR WAS ALIVE RIGHT NOW, HE WOULD BE TURNING 48-YEARS-OLD ON JUNE 16, 1971. ACCORDING TO A CONSPIRACY THEORY, TUPAC SHAKUR IS NOT ONLY ALIVE, BUT THEY CLAIM TO HAVE A PHOTO THAT “PROVES” THAT THE LEGENDARY RAPPER DIDN’T DIE.

TUPAC SHAKUR DIED ON SEPTEMBER 13, 1996, AFTER SUCCUMBING TO HIS FOUR GUNSHOT WOUNDS HE SUFFERED FROM A DRIVE-BY SHOOTING IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, SIX DAYS EARLIER. OR AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TOLD TO BELIEVE. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE TUPAC SHAKUR, WHO WAS BORN LESANE PARISH CROOKS, NEVER DIED AND IS STILL ALIVE TO THIS DAY.

CONSPIRACY THEORIES CONTEND THAT SHAKUR FAKED HIS DEATH SO THAT HIS ENEMIES WOULD THINK HE WAS DEAD. THERE HAVE BEEN ALLEGED TUPAC SIGHTINGS IN CUBA AT A BOSTON CELTICS GAME, DRINKING HAND GRENADES IN NEW ORLEANS, AT THE BET AWARDS, AND KIM KARDASHIAN SWORE SHE SPOTTED TUPAC. SUGE KNIGHT’S SON SAID SHAKUR WAS STILL ALIVE AND LIVING IN MALAYSIA.


THE NEWEST “TUPAC IS ALIVE” SIGHTING DOESN’T GIVE THE LOCATION OR THE DATE OF THIS …
