Super Soccer Champ is a soccer game from Taito that was originally released in the Arcades as Football Champ. It was later remastered and released on the Commodore Amiga in Europe and on the Super Nintendo in all three regions by Domark. It is known as Euro Football Champ in Europe, Hat Trick Hero in Japan and Super Soccer Champ in the US.
The game is horizontal-oriented, with the goals on the east and west sides of the pitch. The player can choose between eight international sides, the actual composition of which is different for each version. Hat Trick Hero replaces Spain and France with Japan and the US, for instance. The game also includes Argentina, Brazil, England, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.
The original arcade version was included in the PS2 compilation Taito Legends 2. The game was eventually followed up with a Japan-only sequel, Hat Trick Hero 2.
