J. League Pro Striker (Jリーグプロストライカー) is a 1993 football game for the Sega Mega Drive by Sega. It was the first in a long line of J. League games developed by Sega after acquiring the license to the franchise for their consoles (but it was not the first J. League game on a Sega system — Game Arts's J. League Champion Soccer, released a few months earlier on the MD, was).

J. League Pro Striker was originally launched on April 23, 1993, however a bug caused these initial copies of the game to recalled. A modified version was released on June 18, 1993.

Gameplay

As the name suggests, J. League Pro Striker features teams from the Japanese J.League, specifically the 10 teams which competed in the 1993 season:

  • Gamba Osaka
  • JEF United Ichihara
  • Nagoya Grampus Eight
  • Sanfrecce Hiroshima
  • Urawa Red Diamonds
  • Verdy Kawasaki
  • Yokohama Flügels
  • Yokohama Marinos
  • Kashima Antlers
  • Shimizu S-Pulse

Incidentally this was the first year of the J.League's existence, so is, by extension, one of the first J.League-branded video games.

History

Legacy

The game was followed by J. League Pro Striker Perfect and later J. League Pro Striker 2.
