Mike Tyson Shames Nintendo For Not Including Him In Punch Out For NES Online

It seems that boxing legend Mike Tyson is not happy with Nintendo’s recent re-release of Punch Out on NES Nintendo Switch Online starring Mr Dream!

Mike Tyson has decided to publicly speak out on Twitter that the original NES game that fans love just isn’t the same without him appearing.

Check it out below:

This is quite understandable as Mike Tyson is a very well known boxer which is why Punch Out was well known back in the day.

Unfortunately, getting the license to use his likeness in the re-release would have likely cost Nintendo a lot more money than they would earn earn which is why it likely didn’t happen.

However, he did not even play his version of the game until 2013 (which was around 26 years after the games original release) which means it is quite strange he has this much of an attachment to the game.
