Football video games have advanced a lot since the 1980s and 90s, but sometimes you long for the elegant 8-bit simplicity of a bygone era. If that sounds like you, then we have some good news, because there’s a new Tecmo Super Bowl 2013, with an updated roster and stats that will allow you to simulate the 2013 NFL season in the comfort of you very own home. Hooray For Technology!
Tecmo Super Bowl, for those not in the know, was one of the last games released on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, and since then, it has been a game with a massive cult following, as fans update and re-update the game to reflect modern stats. If you just so happen to be a part of the Tecmo Bowl cult, or if you’ve never played the game before and would like to give it a shot, you can grab yourself a copy of the newest edition here.
Here is a look at a Tecmo Super Bowl 2013 simulation of last night’s game between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
