Tecmo Bowl

At the recent Tecmo “Night Out 07” event, it was revealed that the company is working on a Tecmo Bowl for one of the new consoles. This will be a totally new game, not a port of one from year’s past. Which console it will be on remains a mystery.

“I can’t tell you what platform we’re making it for. But I can tell you that it’s probably not going to be on the platform that you’re expecting… if that makes any sense.”

Will consumers be open to a new, unlicensed Tecmo Bowl? Or is the attraction to the name only due to the nostalgia of playing the old Tecmo Bowl games when growing up?

It’s difficult to guess what system the game will be on, and the cryptic mention of not being on the one you would expect doesn’t help. If it was being made for the PS3 or 360, it would seem likely that they would want to port it to the other. That would leave the Wii appearing to be the likely destination. There is always the chance it could be going to a handheld such as the Nintendo DS also.
