Cover artInterestingly enough Tecmo actually reused the photograph of this game's cover for the flyer of the Japanese arcade release of Midway's Super High Impact. This flyer also uses artwork from the flyer of an earlier Tecmo arcade game, All American Football.
RosterIn May 2010, the last active player from the game's 1991 roster, Jeff Feagles (a punter for the New York Giants), retired at the age of 44. Prior to Feagles retiring, the previous 2009 NFL season began with three Tecmo Super Bowl players still active on an NFL roster: Feagles, John Carney of the New Orleans Saints, and linebacker Junior Seau of the New England Patriots.
