Glass Joe Coffee

Glass Joe blowing on his coffee. This is an example of an image in a slideshow.

Slideshows are a new feature in Punch Out!! for the Wii which are shown just before beginning a fight with a contender to give the characters more backstory. During these, several images of the character are shown. These either depict them living their lives normally, training for their matches or how they've trained to take on Little Mac in Title Defense. The music played during each slideshow is either an actual song from their country or stereotypical music associated with said country or nationality.
