Tecmo Bowl back in 2008???

By 1UP Staff

In 2008, the Tecmo Bowl series will return, but Tecmo won't tell us how just yet. The company teased a new installment in the hard-hitting sports franchise at an event in Japan today, but they only showed a logo and promised the game would be arriving on a surprising platform that we didn't expect -- maybe a handheld?

Nothing else about the "new" Tecmo Bowl was announced at the event, but if you'll recall, Tecmo's promised a new Tecmo Bowl game in the past and never delivered -- they announced something similar years ago for the last set of platforms, but the game never materialized.



Not a lot to go off of yet, but it should be exciting just to see Tecmo again.

So true. Actually, I always liked using Okoye. Watching defenders bounce off of him was a riot. Same could be said for Tom Rathman.

The combo of Okoye and Barry Word was awesome in that game!

Even playing as the Lions was great back then. :,-(

Barry's moves were almost as nifty as the real thing on there.

Doesn't EA have exclusive rights to the NFL and the players?
The cake is a lie.
