Earlier today, Joystick reported that the 1993 SNES version of Tecmo Super Bowl will soon be re-released on Playstation Network and the Xbox Live Arcade. The SNES version was already a re-release of the original Tecmo Super Bowl that was released in 1991 for the NES. At the time, it included upgraded visuals, minor tweaks and many bug fixes.
The re-release on PSN and XBLA will include updated HD graphics, but can also be played in the original 16-bit mode. While an exact release date is not known at this time, it is clear that the game will include all teams, players and matches that were included in the original and that the game will be known as Tecmo Bowl Throwback.
Despite being released in 1993, Tecmo Super Bowl has acquired a cult following and has a community that continues to update emulation-roms with player rosters to this day.
