    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 22 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2014. This 7th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2014 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

    Can J.J. Watt create the chaos Derrick Thomas did in '91? Can Adrian Peterson match the legendary Bo Jackson? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Colin Kaepernick or QB Eagles? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2014 will make legends for the next 22 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
    Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM.
    Open Nestopia.
    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 2013. 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 2014 notes
    32-Team ROM
    Rosters current as of 9/2/13
    Adjustable quarter length
    Playbook editing in-game
    Player 2 attributes now display correctly
    Halftime stats
    Passing Accuracy now works. Passing Accuracy determines if a pass will be completed. Pass Control 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
    In order to get the proper Pro Bowl players, you will need to reset the season from the Schedule menu
