tecmo super bowl is easily one of the best games ever made, and this is supposed to be based off of that. definitely excited... too bad multiplayer wont be the same sit-around-the-nes experience :(

I had no idea about this game until now. I think I put more hours into Tecmo Bowl than any other game. I'm unstoppable as the New York Giants.

I'm definitely going to grab this.

I wish Amazon also gave away Tecmo Bowl shirts for preordering like Gamestop.

But thanks, Virgil. I know some people would love this for xmas, so I'll buy two. Not to mention that I need some ppl to play against!

Super Tecmo Bowl was godly, it really sucks that EA is hogging the NFL license

Wow - didn't know about this. I have never been able to get into the 3D football games. I feel like I have little control over what is going on in them, or at least less. The old games were so much more fun. Hopefully the gameplay proves great. EDIT: lack of NFL names doesn't bother me. In fact it fits the style of this game perfectly and they can have fun with naming the teams. I think the ones in the screenshots are pretty funny.

Everything about the game can be edited. There will surely be rosters that you can get for it that will have real teams and players.

This price is great, but I'm not gonna lie - I gotta have that Tecmo Bowl t-shirt from Gamestop. That is too hot.

I'm waiting for the under $20 price for this one but still a good deal.

I love Tecmo bowl. I've got to hold off on ds purchases right now but this is tempting.

edit: anybody know how this is controlled ... is it stylus emphasized. I think I'd like it to stay old school.

From what I've heard, it is stylus enhanced. I thought you could play the entire game without the stylus... but I may be wrong.

My boyfriend still plays Tecmo Super Bowl/Tecmo Bowl. So if this actually stays faithful to those I'll buy it for him as a gift. Thanks OP.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

ROFL that bo jackson video is hilarious. If you pulled that showboating back when we were playing the NES version, fists would fly.

Almost as bad as the "B-shot" in Blades of Steel

You can supposedly play old school or stylus controls. I think I'll go old school since I was playing the original right when it came out on NES but stylus control for passing could be cool just tapping the receiver to throw to maybe.

Tecmo Super Bowl is the best sports game ever created, still to this day! It's a tragedy TSB or TBK it is not available on XBLA.

FYI guys... you can actually play tecmo super bowl online already via emulator.

There are dozens of leagues dedicated to original rom rosters, hacked modern rosters, hacked older roster, 32 team enhancement (used to be 28), longer quarters, the list goes on. There are even league managers that allow you to upload your stats into an internet database.

check out these sites if you're interested... I've been playing for about 5 years online now:

www.knobbe.org
www.sois.com/tpc
www.tecmo.us
www.puretecmo.com/forum

knobbe is more of a community, tpc is a pickup game league for newer players, tecmoworld and puretecmo are dedicated to league play for the most part... although there's quite the mccain v obama arguments going on in the general forums. Feel free to hit me up for info; my aim is the same as my username here.

I am definitely buying this game.

Yeah, but you still wouldn't be able to play it with the licensed rosters. Tecmo Bowl is available on Wii's Virtual Console, and all of the rosters are whitewashed since the NFL/NFLPA licensing for the game expired a long time ago (and they couldn't get a new license even if they wanted to, due to EA's current exclusivity deal).

Kingsoby1 is totally right, the best way to play the old game nowadays is online (I never even knew about that, thanks for the heads-up!).

no problem. Playing online via nestopia is almost like playing live against someone... although a lot of leagues still use the laggy nesticle emu.

Any CAGs are welcome to hit me up on AIM or PM if you want more info or help starting up a game.

I had no idea people were still using nesticle for it.

I used to play it online back around 99 or '00... It would be entertaining to give it a go again.

I have no doubt that I'll be picking up this version though.

I used to play online in some of those leagues back in '01-'02ish, even ran my own league at one point. I kinda miss it.

Anyways, this new one, without an NFL license, I don't see it going anywhere but down in price (a la All-Pro 2k8). I'm guessing it'll be 15-20 new in no time, if we're patient.

I guess I'd rather reward Tecmo and pay them a bit more to show my interest in the game.
