    First off, I love Hajime No Ippo. Second the game looks great. Third, I'm gonna import that joker.

    I'm happy I have a Wii. Hopefully I can find another nunchuck by the time the game gets released.

    Eh, any full speed videos kicking about?

    I'm not gonna get excited until I try this game and see if it works with me. Wii Sports Boxing is very unresponsive and misses out pretty much all my punches unless I move like a sloth.

    Hajime No Ippo for Wii? Neat. I saw one of the movie and it was pretty good.

    Unfortunately, unless they decide to make it an extension of the Victorious Boxers line of games, which I haven't seen in a store ever, than it probably won't be making the trip statewise. Hajime no Ippo, or Fighting Spirit as it's called here, really doesn't have the following other anime have such as other shounen shows (ex.: Naruto, Dragon Ball, Shaman King, Yu Yu Hakusho). With HnI being rather obscure here, it's probably best if you hope for a WiiLoader/Wii game Freeloader, though the first Naruto Wii game came out which is usually a big selling point for the Freeloader and we've not heard anything from Datel than "It's in the works", despite Nintendo giving them a dev kit.

    Which is too bad. Everyone I know who has seen Ippo loves it, even those put off by longer series have liked it. The other videos of the game show off the huge cast this one is going to have. I think I saw just about everyone including the guys Takamura, Aoki, and Kimura have fought. I really hope that the younger versions of the Chief and company are in there. I'd also love to be able to use the Dempsey Roll.

    Ready 2 Rumble was cool when I was playing it on the Dreamcast. A Wii version is a must buy for me. Hopefully we see a Punch Out!! too.

    BTW: Mayweather Dec. over DeLa Hoya.
