There are 13 boxers to face on your journey to become World Champion and Nintendo has confirmed the return of three fans' favourite characters: Piston Hondo, Great Tiger and Bear Hugger.

Tokyo boxer Piston Hondo uses a series of quick-fire jabs to take down opponents, Great Tiger, a fighter from India uses magical powers in the ring which enables him to vanish and split in two while the Canadian who goes by the name of Bear Hugger is a beast of a fighter who grew up beating up wild animals.

Once you've beaten all your opponents to become World Champion, you'll have to defend your title in Title Defence Mode. It will be harder than ever as your opponents will know your moves.
