    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 24 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2016. This site's 9th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads. Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players.

     

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

     

    Will offenses fear Richard Sherman like they feared Ronnie Lott? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Marshawn Lynch live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 will make legends for the next 23 years.

    A. How This Works
    If you're new to emulation:
    ROM = Game or Cartridge (.nes file)
    Emulator = NES System

     

    B. How To Play - PC/Mac

    1. Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM - ** Windows Here ** ** Mac Here **
    2. Open Nestopia.
    3. From Nestopia, File > Open and find your .nes ROM.


    C. How to Play Online - Windows
    Setup for online play using our guide - http://tecmobowl.org/topic/53066-guide-get-started-playing-tsb-online-for-dummies/. We then recommend starting out at the TPC - http://www.tecmoplayers.com.

     


    Most TPC players use the original Tecmo Super Bowl ROM, but you might be able to find some people playing TSB 2016. Remember that the versions of the game must be exactly the same or you will not be able to connect.

     

    If you’re looking for an online league, we recommend TecmoBowl.org's Online Tecmo Leagues.

     

    D. Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 notes

    • Check Defense condition - In the same location as the time out menu there is now a "CHECK DEF" option which lets you scroll left and right through your players
    • 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses. The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters.
    • 32-Team ROM
    • Rosters current as of 9/8/15
    • Adjustable quarter length
    • Playbook editing in-game
    • Player 2 attributes now display correctly
    • Halftime stats
    • Passing Accuracy hack is different from last year. Pass Control determines if a pass will be completed. Passing Accuracy determines if the ball will be on target.
    • Quickness now works. This will be the maximum speed of a defender if they pick up a fumble or make an interception

    Only problem I am having is when the after the QB says "ready" the audio cuts out. All other sounds work find except for the "set, hut hut hut" Is this by design? I didn't see anyone else having this problem. Using NESTopia and have tried re-downloading a couple times.

    By design.

    @TaeKwonJoe Pretty cool. Not sure what everyone else is running but on the Moto G with Android 5.1 and Chrome it's extremely laggy/slow.  I'll have to try it after rebooting to see if that makes a difference.

    @Knobbe It does fairly well on my older iPhone 5 but definitely laggy on my Galaxy S4 and old iPad2. It should do well on iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6.

    I'll work on enabling sound for the next generation of phones.

     

    Thanks again for putting together the ROMs. We should get a Kickstarter campaign going and start a game dev company :) I'm sure there are plenty of people around the globe that would back the TSB annual updates alone.
