Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! is a boxing sports fighting video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) developed and published by Nintendo in 1987. It is a port of both the Punch-Out!! and Super Punch-Out!! arcade games (mostly the latter) with some variations. It has consistently been ranked among the best games released for the NES platform. Mario makes an appearance as the game's referee.
After Nintendo's license to use Mike Tyson as a special Punch-Out!! character expired, Nintendo replaced Tyson with a fictional character called Mr. Dream and re-released the game in North America as simply Punch-Out!! in August 1990 in limited quantities. This version was released on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Japan on February 1, 2012, in Europe on March 1, 2012 and in North America on March 8, 2012.
