Mark Tyler, the world's most famous boxer, boasts that he is absolutely invincible and that he can defeat any contender in the world. Nay, the universe! Well, as luck would have it, a race of alien fighters heard Mark's claims and have decided to abduct him and pit him against the fiercest boxers in the galaxy.

Power Punch 2 is a one-on-one boxing game à la Punch Out, in which you control Mark as he battles all of the alien contenders in hopes of winning the galactic boxing belt. The game is played from a third person perspective from which you see both fighters as they fight. You have rudimentary movement controls but the basic mechanics involve dodging and timing your attacks so that you can break the enemies' patterns. Between fights you get to train in a gym, which involve taking part in a series of mini-games with the rewards being upgraded strength, speed, or health for your upcoming bout.

Power Punch 2 actually started its life as a sequel to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, however as Tyson was facing a rape trial at the time, Nintendo dropped his name and developed a lookalike for the main character. Eventually the poor quality of the game (which had been licensed to third party developers) caused Nintendo to disavow the sequel and thus had to be published by American Softworks under the name Power Punch 2. Note that there is no Power Punch 1, the number being merely a reminder of what the game was originally supposed to be.
