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.
