Tecmo Bowl

If you're fond of retro sports titles, you'll be pleased to hear Hamster will soon release the 1987 arcade game, Tecmo Bowl, on the Nintendo Switch in the next few weeks. This new entry in the Arcade Archives line, as the name suggests, was originally developed by the Japanese company Tecmo.

Nintendo fans are likely to be more familiar with the NES iteration of Tecmo Bowl, which has previously been released on multiple digital platforms including the Wii Shop, 3DS eShop and Wii U eShop. The original cabinet version was last added to the Virtual Console Arcade line on the Wii in 2009.

It's a nice change of pace to have a slightly rarer retro release on its way to the Switch eShop. Apart from a number of gameplay differences to the NES version, one other bonus of the arcade release is improved visuals – with a larger colour palette and more detailed sprite work.
