Time to give Glass Joe his 19th loss.

Nintendo's Arcade Archives will add its third title next week, according to a Hamster livestream.

The Arcade Archives version of Punch-Out!! has been announced for a March 30 release in Japan. Traditionally, Hamster Arcade Archives releases have released worldwide on the same date.

Punch-Out joins Mario Bros. and Vs. Super Mario Bros in the Nintendo Archives series, which announced seven games in the September 2017 Nintendo Direct. The Switch version will have 2 player support as well as the ability to play with a vertical Switch, replicating the original arcade setup.

Yeah! Now we're starting to get to the meat of the announced titles. I just hope that the seven thus far announced titles do well enough that Nintendo will allow Hamster to release their really obscure arcade games.

The price is a little more than I'd like to pay, but I'm down for what will be a relatively new Punch-Out game for me.  I think I've MAYBE played this version once or twice, but it wasn't in any of my local arcades as a kid.
