Those of you out there that have been waiting for the perfect, non-Madden, football game…look no further.
It fills me with incredible joy to say the words, Tecmo Bowl is coming back!
I spent hours upon hours with Tecmo Bowl and Tecmo Super Bowl as a young man. Tournaments and brackets with friends and countless seasons against the computer. Unstoppable players like Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor combined with the thrill of realizing, you chose the right play on defense and stuffed the offense. Ah, GREAT times indeed.
