Tecmo Bowl Throwback has been confirmed for North American release on next-generation console networks next spring. And yet nobody bothers to make a videogame for the CFL. Some features of the new game, available on Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network:
• Online Multiplayer: Find your old buddies online and challenge them to matches just like back in the day
• 2D + 3D Graphics: Experience all new 3D graphics with the ability to switch to the classic 2D style!
• Customizable Teams and Rosters: Play as any of the 32 teams with customizable team names and rosters in full seasons –-GameFocus
I was never big on Tecmo Bowl in the mid-1990s. That’s probably because I sucked at it, unless I played as the Pittsburgh Steelers, and even then I was about average. The look of the old game was terrible; it looked like an Oompa-Loompa orgy on AstroTurf. Not that I have first-hand knowledge of those things. I just read the police reports like everybody else.
