In the latest Nintendo Direct, the highly requested boxer from the classic ‘Punch-Out!!’ franchise has been confirmed as a new playable fighter for the upcoming Smash Bros.! Nice to see that he’s not just an assist trophy this time around, and that he shares his updated look as seen in ‘Punch-Out Wii’!
Along side the announcement is a very cool trailer showing off A bit of how he plays and some artistic cinematic scenes.
He appears to have very effective combos and a charge meter that let’s him execute very powerful flaming punches (somewhat similar to Captain Falcon). He also appears to be balanced out by giving him somewhat weak air and recovering movesets. His Final Smash allows him to transform into his Giga Mac form (seen in multi-player from Punch-Out Wii).
He’s looking like a very solid fighter who I’m looking forward to playing as! It’s always great to see fan’s wishes being granted.
What do you guys think? Excited to play as Little Mac?
