J. League Champion Soccer (Jリーグチャンピオンサッカー) is a football game developed by Krisalis Software, distributed by Shogakukan Production and published by Game Arts for the Sega Mega Drive in 1993. It is a re-worked and stripped-down version of European Club Soccer intended for Japanese audiences.

Gameplay

J. League Champion Soccer plays much the same as European Club Soccer and its US variant, World Trophy Soccer, though has far fewer teams and lacks the strip editor. It is, however, the only game in the trio to have official licensing from a football body - in this case the Japanese J.League.
