Victorious Boxers Ippo’s Road to Glory with Trevor H (Catching Up on Cinema)

I have a feeling we’re about to start hitting a bunch of manga based games. Might as well make one of the early rounds of that be a boxing game.  My ability to think of any more boxing puns is on the down for the count so let’s be serious.  Today we’re taking a look at Victorious Boxers: Ippo’s Road to Glory.

I’ve got Trevor H from Catching Up on Cinema to help guide me through this one and possibly maybe get my pronunciation a bit better.

Learn such things as:

  • Why aren’t I making a tag for every playable character? Here’s a hint
  • Can you have too much fan service?
  • What happens when a silly licensed game has better mechanics than a simulator?
  • And so much more!
