Released in 1987, the football game that took America by storm is back. This arcade version required a custom-made dual-screen cabinet, and was popular for its large characters and intense graphics. Players take control of receivers and running backs. The game is filled with great action, like quickly moving the controller to break a tackle. Play alone, or with up to four players in a two-on-two match. Experience the best moments of both competitive and cooperative play, finding holes in your opponent's defense, then savor the thrill of receiving a pass thrown by your teammate. In addition, game options such as play time, team division and difficulty level can be adjusted.
This classic game is part of the Virtual Console service, which brings you great games created for consoles such as NES™, Super NES™ and Game Boy™ Advance. See more Virtual Console games for Wii.
