Tecmo World Cup last edited by Mento on 04/13/20 01:06PM View full history

Overview

Tecmo World Cup is a soccer game developed and published by SIMS Co. for the Japanese Sega Mega Drive, and published by Atlus Software for the North American Sega Genesis platform. In Japan the game is titled Tecmo World Cup '92. It is an enhanced port of Tecmo World Cup '90, an arcade game by Tecmo, expanding the number of available teams from eight to twenty-four. It features single-player and two-player modes, as well as a World Cup mode that progresses through a groups stage before moving to the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final.

While named for the global FIFA event, Tecmo World Cup isn't based on the 1990 World Cup in particular, as the qualifying teams are different. The following is a table of teams included in Tecmo World Cup with a side comparison of which teams actually qualified for World Cup '90.

Due to world politics, between 1989 (when the game was first released in arcades) and late 1992 (when this Genesis port was released), Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union had ceased to exist, and West Germany had unified with East Germany.
