Tecmo Super Bowl

A Sports game for NES by Tecmo in the Tecmo Bowl series

Tecmo Super Bowl is the follow-up to the NES football arcade/simulation Tecmo Bowl. While the basic gameplay of the original is intact, a host of new features and improvements have been added.

It was the first sports video game that had licensing privileges with both the league it sought to emulate (National Football League) and the player's association (National Football League Players Association), thus allowing the game to use both the names and attributes of real NFL teams and real NFL players. (Prior games used the real teams or the real players, but not both simultaneously.) Although the game was released in late 1991, all team rosters and player attributes were based on the prior 1990-91 NFL season, which means no rookies drafted in 1991, prior to the beginning of the 1991-1992 season, were added to the game.

Trivia
  • In May 2010, the last active player from the game's 1991 roster, Jeff Feagles (a punter for the New York Giants), retired at the age of 44. Prior to Feagles retiring, the previous 2009 NFL season began with three Tecmo Super Bowl players still active on an NFL roster: Feagles, John Carney of the New Orleans Saints, and linebacker Junior Seau of the New England Patriots.1
