Tactical Soccer is a strategic soccer game from Electronic Arts Victor, using the EA Sports brand. The game is the sequel to 1994's Zico Soccer, also for the Super Famicom, and uses a similar interface.
Instead of controlling players directly, the player instead gives roles to automated soccer players in real-time, sending them to guard opposing players or to push ahead when they have possession. A small window at the top of the screen depicts the game in a traditional side-scrolling format, while the bottom half of the screen displays the whole pitch and is what the player interacts with.
The game features sixteen different international sides: Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Germany, Holland (The Netherlands), Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Swiss (Switzerland) and the USA. This is analogous to the sixteen teams that made it to the knockout phase of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, only with Japan substituted for Saudi Arabia.
