This, the third game in the best selling Kick Off series, was the first one to be aimed directly at the consoles rather than home computers and was a big departure from the previous games. Not only was it not programmed by Kick Off creator Dino Dini it also swapped the classic overhead view for horizontal forced 3D perspective one.
The Jaguar version was apparently finished and submitted to Atari for approval but they found several game breaking bugs and demanded that Anco take the game back and fix it. After the SNES and Mega Drive versions received awful reviews they just canned it completely and it was never seen again. Below you can see a print advert that appeared in several magazines for it.
