Tactical Soccer (タクティカル・サッカー, Takutikaru Sakkā) is a Japan-exclusive soccer game released for the Super Famicom in 1995.



The game can be considered as the sequel to Zico Soccer. Players must choose from 16 national soccer teams with skills ranging from an "A" letter grade (best) to an "E" letter grade (worst). There are 8 different formations to choose from and once the players have set their teams, during the gameplay they must use a tactical map to guide the football into the goal.

Tactical Soccer was released almost a year later after the 1994 FIFA World Cup but the teams available are exactly those who qualified for the Round of 16 of the tournament (except the inclusion of Japan instead of Saudi Arabia).


On release, Famicom Tsūshin scored the game a 21 out of 40.[5]
