The big question, of course, being: will we see updated team rosters, or the return of the unstoppable Virtual Bo Jackson?

Hey, they're even throwing in "Mighty Bomb Jack" ...



Kudos all around!

Ahh, yes & no.

First off what is being released is a compliation of old school NES titles from Tecmo(Tecmo Basketball, Mighty Bombjack, Fire-n-Ice, Solomon's Key, and Tecmo Bowl) all emulated onto a joystick/controller.

They are not for GBA or anything, it's a device that plugs into your TV directly.

JAKKS makes these joystick or contollers that are battery powered(or AC Adaptor) and plugs directly into a television's A/V ports. They have differnet NAMCO (Pac-Man, Dig Dug, etc) collections, Activision (Pitfall, etc) collections out currently. A Midway (Mortal Kombat) 'k'ollection is currently in the works as well as a Capcom collection (Mega Man)

All games are the originals with no alterations. Thus makes these not so bad. I wouldnt want my classics altered.

I didn't know it left. Of course, I still have my Ninteno, my Tecmo Bowl, and my Tecmo Super Bowl.

I'm anxious to get that Mortal Kombat one that's being worked on.

I'm still annoyed they separated MK 1 and MK 2 & 3 between the MK Deception Collector's Edition and Midway Arcade Treasures 2 disc, so buying the plug-and-play controller is a nice way to save some money.

I hope the games are emulated with some accuracy and professionally. The Atari one and the Coleco Vision one that my buddy has are basically worthless, as they are full of errors and regularly show the wrong colors, play the wrong sounds, etc... This better not be a half-assed attempt to cash in on more nostalgia.

The NAMCO & ACTIVISION ones are prety flawless. Maybe it was the coding tranfer from which the ATARI & COLECOVISON.

I know both NAMCO & ACTIVISION signed off on the quality before JAKKS shipped them. Maybe whomever has the ownership of the original ATARI & COLECO games didn't care too much.

Is the game going to be side scrolling like the original? If so, I can't see it being any fun at all.

I don't know if you still can, but you can change EA sports football games to sidescrolling and it is impossibly hard!

Tecmo Bowl is an example of how fun simple things can be, easy to learn, but hard to master.

What didn't you understand. ALL games on TV Games are translations and no changes to camera angles etc.

Here is a link to all the TV games collections coming out or are already released

Oh, I didn't realize it was a rerelease. I didn't bother reading the story because well, I'm on dial up now and don't want to bother loading a new page.

I thought you meant that the Tecmo Bowl SERIES was coming back and being updated to newest generation on consoles.

What's even more important, semi-off-topic, is that Jakks is releasing a World Poker Tour game. Sweeeeeeeet.

YYYYEESSSSSS!!

I will buy 5 of these, just to have Tecmo Bowl back!


Now if we can just get an updated one made for the GBA or DS, I could die a happy man. It will be nice to see Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, and Vinny Testaverde back in all their 8-bit glory.

I hope the Bears vs. Bears code glitch is in there also.

This is a one person only game though, right? It's a game built into a controller, or am I reading this wrong?

But if it's only a one-player game (as Guru Zim brought up), then it's not really an "exact replica," is it?

Who said its a one player game? I do believe if you had 2 you can use them together.

Is this not a "TV Games" item? All of these that I have seen have been a single controller with a set of inputs for the TV. Are they making these where they link together now?

Apparently so. I believe the same will be said for the MIDWAY collection (Mortal Kombats, etc), DISNEY, WORLD POKER, etc.

Look at the collections out now none of them really NEED to be played as 2 players, as the library of licenses grows so will the TV Games products

Do you, like, WORK for TV Games or something? You seem to be very passionate about the subject ...

At Best Buy yesterday I saw a Tetris TV games type thing that came with two controllers for two players, so it would not surprise me if this ended up being two player as well.

Well, see, maybe that's the problem. I've been using the roundabout in Jersey and the quarter / half pipe there to try to hit the scores. I'm stuck at the beat Eric's line part of the skate comp. in Vancouver on the hard mode.
