The most unusual thing about this sequel to Punch-Out!! is that the very first opponent, Bear Hugger, looks really mean and tough and not puny and wimpy like Glass Joe, the very first opponent in the original game.


SPIN-OFF: Arm Wrestling

Arm Wrestling uses the same "pull up on joystick" mechanic to simulate ripping Mask X's mask off, and to grab the prize money thrown at the contestant by the promoter.
