Back in May 2019 it was announced that HAMSTER was releasing Arcade Archives Tecmo Bowl sometime that month for the Nintendo Switch. Though that month – and many more – have passed since then, now the game is finally out and ready to purchase worldwide.
You can read below the official description of the title:
“TECMO BOWL” is an American football game released by TECMO in 1987.
Experience matches as a player of either the WILDCATS or BULLDOGS. Predict your opponent’s moves and steal the ball! Use passes and runs to cut through their line and score an amazing touchdown!
While you have had access to the NES version of the game via Nintendo’s Switch Online – Nintendo Entertainment System app, the arcade version includes improved visuals such as a much more varied colour palette and more detailed sprites. It also offers the usual Arcade Archive benefits you have come to enjoy via the series of releases.
If you are still unsure if this is for you, then enjoy the launch trailer below:
Arcade Archives: Tecmo Bowl is out now worldwide on the Nintendo Switch. Launching at the price $7.99/€6.99/£6.29.
