Watch the New Star Soccer 5 Trailer
It is no secret that I love the football/soccer games from the 80’s and early 90’s. I was a HUGE Kick Off 2 and Kick off Player Manager fan on the Atari ST, but shed the ST for a PC just in time to miss out on Sensible. Anyway, about 4 years ago I found and was blown away by New Star Soccer 3 – 8bitjeff, starting from the LA Galaxy, went on to play at Barcelona, scoring 75 goals in a single campaign to earn 5 consecutive Footballer of the year awards, and helped claim the 2010 and 2014 World Cups for the USA!
NSS5 will be released shortly. You can check out the Trailer here. It’s unashamedly retro and best fooking retro sports game I have ever seen. We will be in the Beta program, so I can write up some periodic updates as it nears release.
