NAME: Tecmo Cup Football AUTHOR/VENDOR: Tecmo RELEASED: 1992 TYPE: Sports (soccer) LANGUAGE: English and Japanese PREMISE: Young Robert had a dream - to play on a World Cup soccer team. His childhood is now behind him, but the dream remains. Robert is now an acclaimed soccer player, and his team has just qualified for the World Cup. It's up to Robert and his teammates to see that the dream comes true. IMPRESSIONS: Make no mistake about it - this is a slightly retooled version of the highly acclaimed Japanese cinematic soccer game known as Captain Tsubasa, based on the long-running manga/anime series created in 1992 by Yoichi Takahashi. My copy is the English one (thanks, Zhenying Wu!), which means that the character art has been modified and Occidental names substituted for the oriental ones. That doesn't matter - I can spot a Tsubasa game regardless of minor mods, and this one is every bit as good as its SNES counterparts. VARIATIONS: Captain Tsubasa (Japanese, existence unconfirmed) This may be a simplified version of the Mega CD game; see separate entry.
