Punch-Out!! was an unusual foray for Nintendo, known for cute platformers, as a challenging and realistic (if somewhat cartoony) third-person boxing game. Aside from its cleverly wireframed protagonist, which allowed you to see yourself without obscuring your opponent, Punch-Out!! was most novel for featuring two monitors, one for the main action and one that displays the fighters, score and status (so chosen because Nintendo had a glut of CRT monitors at the time that it needed to get rid of). Though simple, the game's boxing gameplay proved quite addictive for arcade-goers, leading to both an arcade sequel and several console adaptations.
