Tecmo Bowl Throwback Is Real, Leaked By The ESRB

image The rumors about a Tecmo Bowl revival were on the money. While it hasn’t been officially announced, Tecmo Bowl Throwback is in development for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Thanks to the the ESRB we know a little more about Tecmo Koei’s football revival.


This is a top-down arcade-style football game in which players compete against teams around the country to become the "Tecmo Bowl Champion." Some of the football highlights are depicted in animated cutscenes (with better graphics); a few non-football highlights depict cheerleaders wearing low-cut tops while dancing. And a jumbotron screen displays a 2D swimsuit model with some exposed cleavage.


A swimsuit model with exposed cleavage… in a Tecmo game? You’ve got to be kidding me.

    I must break you…

  • Huh? Well, I’ll take a return of this football game than 10 Yard Fight. The short jingle at the end of each first down in that game scared the daylights out of me as a kid. Can’t explain why, but it still haunts me. I don’t want to think about it…

    Traumatization aside, it was a fun game. So was the Tecmo Bowl, and maybe now it might even give the Madden series a run for it’s money.
    Well, maybe not.

    NBA Jam and Tecmo Bowl in the same year? I might just start playing sports games again!

    I’ve been waiting for new information, this will work. I was hoping to see screenshots. Hopefully they won’t mess it up like what they did with Tecmo Bowl Kickoff.
