Before EA's annual FIFA releases, there was a Nintendo title known as Soccer. It didn't include card packs, online play, or even in-game ads - instead it was a simple but "exciting" take on the beautiful game starring a bunch of international teams.
This week the classic football game joins Hamster Corp's Arcade Archives collection for $7.99 / £6.29 (or your regional equivalent). It supports up to two players and, as usual, includes all the modern extras.
"SOCCER" is a sports game released by Nintendo in 1985. Play matches against the CPU in single player mode or another player in 2-player mode. Try polishing your skills in single player, then take on friends and family! Enjoy simple, but exciting gameplay in the father of all soccer games!
The "Arcade Archives" series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces.
Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores.
Please enjoy the masterpiece that built a generation for video games.
Alternatively, if you don't want to fork out for this, you can always go with the version available on Nintendo's Switch Online NES service. Or, if you prefer the American take on football, Tecmo Bowl might be worth checking out.
