Released: 1987

Fun Fact: When the boxers wrapped each other up, it looked distinctly like they were embracing one another.

Ring King provided a simulation-based experience compared to the other boxing game which came out in the same year, Punch-Out!!! Points earned through victories in Ring King's career mode could be spent to improve your fighter, and the game also featured a head-to-head 2-player mode.

The sim feel of the game was unfortunately broken with power moves like uppercuts that sent boxers soaring through the air, and a hook delivered by spinning around.
