You might have seen reference to this on the Tecmo Super Bowl Facebook page but Tecmo Inspired Gridiron Heros has hit project incubator Kickstarter today. GH initially will be a simulation or "coach mode" type game on Facebook with aspirations of head to head play via the social media giant.
There is a pretty clever video describing the point of the game. It should be interesting to see how this progresses as it's actually quite surprising that no one has tried before now to duplicate the game play of Tecmo Super Bowl until now.

Things to expect in real life based on a 20 year old video game with updated players
Patriots are going to air the ball out with Wes Welker putting up almost an MVP performance
Giants run more of a balanced offense with Brandon Jacobs stepping up
Victor Cruz is going to be involved in the game winning drive
The Patriot's hopes will be crushed by Justin Tuck
This should be a video game like performance from both teams in which offense isn't a factor
Thanks to our own fatcheerleader for putting together this year's video
If you're in the area and you're looking to play some Tecmo Super Bowl before the actual Super Bowl, here is the 411:
Waterloo, Iowa - Not only a Tecmo Super Bowl tournament, Spicolies will also be hosting a Chili cook off as in this bar known for it's musical acts
Greensboro, NC - This tourney will be held at the Lost Arcade Video store and you won't just be playing for pride....you'll be playing for store credit.
Harlon, Iowa - Just found out there is another second annual Iowa tourney the day before the Super Bowl...whaaaaattt?
As always, you can find out about all the tournaments we here about by visiting our Tourney section up top (or link here)
This game was so back in forth that it was playing on ESPN Classic 1/2 hour before it was over. There were a lot of great moments in this game (including the QB Eagles Run 4 executed perfectly by Alex Smith). However, here is your game winning pass that continues the 49ers great turnaround season. Thanks again, Mr. NFL
