The game, and by extension the series is considered a spin-off to the Punch-Out!! series, since it was originally created as a sequel to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! starring the titular real-life boxer and titled Mike Tyson's Intergalactic Power Punch. The game would also feature Tyson's famous promoter Don King. While the game was developed, though, Tyson started legal troubles, so the game was retitled and the protagonist was changed to the similarly named Mark Tyler. Also Don King's trademark hair was removed, making his character bald. It's unclear why the final title features the number two, but the creators likely wanted to promote this game still as a sequel to Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

The gameplay of Power Punch II is still the same as Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! with some additions, most notably a training stage at the beginning of the game.
