Punch-Out!! Gold Cartridge Edition

Did you know that before releasing Punch-Out!! in stores, Nintendo gave out 5,000 copies of the game as prizes for a golf tournament they sponsored in Japan.

Instead of a traditional game cart, Nintendo opted for a gold cartridge that was styled like the American NES cart.

Since this was before they secured a three-year license for Tyson’s name and likeness, there was no dream bout. The game ends when you defeat Super Macho Man.
