Family Fun Football better not be Tecmo’s excuse for Tecmo Bowl Wii

And the kidification of sports games on the Wii continues…

To be fair, Tecmo’s recently announced Family Fun Football for the Wii looks like it could be fun (hence the name). The graphics may not look like much (the Mii bobble-head influence features prominently), but the animation seems tight and the “Crazy Mascot Mode” will finally help you settle that bet with your friend on who would win in a fight: a frog or a monkey. As long as Tecmo is still working on Tecmo Bowl for Wii — a game that has been barely talked about since it was announced in May of 2008 — we have no reason to begrudge this fanciful little game.
