Tecmo Bowl

This week sees the release of the retro sports title Tecmo Bowl on the Nintendo Switch eShop. As usual, it supports 1-2 players and will set you back $7.99 / £6.29.

Here's the rundown:

"TECMO BOWL" is an American football game released by TECMO in 1987.

Experience matches as a player of either the WILDCATS or BULLDOGS. Predict your opponent’s moves and steal the ball! Use passes and runs to cut through their line and score an amazing touchdown!

The original cabinet version of this game was last added to the Virtual Console Arcade line on the Nintendo Wii in 2009.

Compared to the NES iteration of Tecmo Bowl (currently available on the Nintendo Switch Online service), this version includes improved visuals – with a larger colour palette and more detailed sprite work. For more information about this game, take a look at our review.
