This week the new game available on Xbox Live Arcade was first released just over 20 years ago. Tecmo Bowl Throwback is the HD remake of the classic NES title Tecmo Bowl. For those not old enough to have ever played Tecmo Bowl, the game was the definitive 8-bit football experience. The game is famous for delivering a full football experience, even considering the fact it featured only 4 plays. The game in all it's HD glory, but lack of an NFL license, can be had for only 800MS points. For all PS3 gamers, the title will also be appearing on the PSN as well.
Tecmo Bowl Throwback
