There is now a college version of Tecmo Super Bowl for NES

For the second straight year there will be no NCAA Football video game released by EA Sports, but there may be something to fill the void for retro gamers. A college version of Tecmo Bowl is available to play on your old Nintendo Entertainment System. Because all you really need is a controller with four directions and two buttons.

Tecmo Super Bowl has been given a facelift by some dedicated fans of the game to give it a college flavor for Tecmo Super Bowl College. A total of 32 teams take the field with a variety of plays mimicking today’s offensive play calling (think wildcat, options and screen passes galore). Fans of the old Tecmo Bowl franchise will have to shell out $49.99, which I believe is the price I once paid for Super Mario Brothers 3 when it was initially released, but for some the ability to play a true Tecmo Bowl game with 32 college teams may be worth every penny.

What teams are included?


ACC: Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Miami, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech

Big 12: Baylor, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas

Big Ten: Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin

Pac-12: Arizoan State, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA, USC
