Tecmo Super Bowl (NES) is updated for 2010 as Tecmo Super Coach

tecmosupercoach2009American Football-come-Retro Gaming fans can rejoice as Tecmo Super Bowl has been updated by a very loyal and dedicated fan to bring it into 2010.
This version of Tecmo Super Bowl is rebranded as Tecmo Super Coach as it has completely removed the Player mode and focused on the Coaching mode. The team rosters have been completely upgraded and the graphics have been modified to reflect the other changes.

Here is the changelog / features straight from the updater himself:

Welcome, TSB Fan!


Complete graphical re-branding of TSB! Coach-style ROM. All 32 NFL teams. In-Game Playbook editing. 8 Custom Defensive Plays. Altered Coach-style player Ability Points. A mesh of up-to-date and 'what should have been' 2009-10 rosters [Example: Braylon Edwards on the Jets, Troy Polamalu on the Steelers. It's the best of both worlds.]. Visual Instruction Book, complete with game information and full Defensive Formation breakdown. For a complete list of graphic changes, play-style alterations, game hacks, and so much more, please view the TSC Instruction Book.


Many aspects of Tecmo Super Coach 09-10 have been updated for this v1.2 release. Lots of graphic work. A good amount of game play hacks were also installed. I think you're gonna to love them. All of the changes have been denoted in the fully enhanced TSC Instruction Book.
