    After the departures taken by the NES game, Super Punch-Out!! on SNES very much embraced the feel of the arcade games. Once again, there is no Little Mac, Doc Louis, training intermissions, or hearts. The star system is replaced by the original super punch meter, and an announcer serves ample voice clips. The ring background and enemies look as though they were just traced from the arcade graphics and then gone over with 16-bit detail and color depth. Although it does retain some NES improvements like complex tells and pre-fight trash-talk, the SNES game's adherence to its roots seems to be why it commands only a meager following to this day. Fans didn't care about the arcade games; they just wanted more like the NES one—which is exactly what the Wii game is.
