Developers RockLive, have included a bunch of cool new content themed around the movie, the main draw being that now you can box with the likes of a Hangover II themed Mike and the infamous Mr. Chow guest stars as well. The game originally received over 1 million downloads in its first week, back at its March release and now their new City Leaderboard feature clocked more than 120,000 active users on the day of the update. The game itself is reminiscent of the NES classic Punch Out!! with added extras like “power balance wristbands” and the Hangover themed update allows you to watch the film’s trailer and book tickets directly from the application.
