Football Fury (ウルティメイト フットボール, lit. "Ultimate Football")[4] is a Super NES video game that was released in 1992. The game's full Japanese name is Ultimate Football: Try Formation!.


The football players are on the field and the guy with the ball is looking very confused indeed.

The actual gameplay takes place in a playoffs system of a fictional American football league.[5] Gameplay involves the usual football fare of choosing a play and attempting to execute it.[5] On offense, when throwing the football, a meter appears which measures the strength of the passer's throw.[5] On defense, the player controls a defensive player and tries to tackle the opposing ball carrier or attempt to break up a pass play.[5] There is an option to either play with or without background music.[5]

There are two conferences: the United States Football Conference (USFC) and the American All-Star Football Conference (AAFC). Even though the teams are fictional, they use the cities of the actual NFL teams of the early 1990s.[5] Passwords allow saved games to be restored while a news report is made after each game through the fictional cable television network ZIFN.
