SEGA’s officially licensed Tokyo 2020 title will launch next month in Japan, and it’s bringing with it some old-school arcade sports action. Part of the roster is football – or soccer, to some of you – and it’s definitely channelling the spirit of Virtua Striker in this first gameplay footage.

While it doesn’t look particularly compelling, the simplistic controls and gameplay should make for a short distraction from the likes of FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. You can check out the highlights from a match above, including one fairly spectacular volleyed goal.
