LEGEND BOWL takes you back to the glory days of pixel style football games. No loot boxes. No microtransactions. Just those 10 other guys, looking back at you in the huddle.

Hailed as the "second coming of Tecmo Bowl" [PC Gamer], and the American Football game that's "the modern 'Madden' alternative you've been craving" [Inverse], LEGEND BOWL is THE genre-defining challenger to the staples of gridiron sports games. After an arduous multi-year long porting process, which involved deep enterprise-level collaboration between Top Hat Studios, Inc., and YoYoGames to make radical core improvements to GMS2, the game's underlying engine, LEGEND BOWL delivers a smooth, native gameplay experience optimized for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. The game is also coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

Legend Bowl's flagship mode is a fully fledged FRANCHISE mode, which gives players the feeling of being in the coach's seat they've been craving for. Create your own coach (or choose one from the league), pick one of the 32 unique teams to champion, and then take them through successive, complete, 17 week schedules. Manage your stadium facilities, team rosters and player's needs, and face the grilling of the press on the news wire. There's also a complete off season where you'll take your team through retirements, free agency, player progression, and a full 7 round draft. Legend Bowl puts you into the center of the action, and you'll need to manage the chemistry of your roster and players to build a legendary team. And as a living, breathing franchise... the actions of other teams will matter, too...

Regardless of mode, player control and customization is key. In LEGEND BOWL, you'll be able to fully customize players, coaches, and teams to create your very own dream league. Choose from a variety of hairstyles, faces, visors, earrings, hats, headbands, gloves, and more to build as unique of a roster as you can dream up. When it comes to attention to detail, nothing's spared. Realistic weather, complete with a time cycle lighting system, makes you feel the chill or heat on the field. Clear, cloudy, rain or snow, you'll have to brave it all. On-the-field stat overlays, halftime stats, end-of-game stats, field art, live referees, chain gang, mascots, advertisements, fans and more get you immersed in the game and put you in the stadium!

For more drop-in style play, exhibition mode allows you to simply select any 2 teams, and face them off as either Human vs CPU, Human vs Human, or just watch sparks fly as CPU vs CPU! Play with up to 4 players locally. There's also bracket style tournaments, where 16 teams try to finish at the top. Momentum and weight makes you feel the impact of every tackle, fumble, or kick, and brings the battle on the gridiron alive. Carefully balanced to have the optimal mix of arcade style fun with realistic/sim gameplay mechanics, speed, agility, acceleration and more all come into play.

LEGEND BOWL will be available for Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch later in 2023. The game is OUT NOW on Steam.
