Table of ISS

Back to ISS History

This table shows all ISS games ever released in complete chronological order.  While the western releases are easy to track, it is difficult keeping up with all the Japanese titles and their exact release dates.  We do believe we have it close to 100% accurate, but don't hesitate to email the ISS Realm if you see any errors.  The Japanese version of Hyper Soccer is one that escapes us, and some of the N64 titles seem a little askew.  Especially since they started with Perfect Striker then went to Jikkyou World Soccer 3, and then eventually back to Perfect Striker 2.   While the Perfect Striker games involve J-League teams and the JWS games feature international teams, it is the number 3 of JWS3 that is weird.  It is more than likely that other JWS have been released, unbeknownst to all but the hardcore Japanese ISS players.  On the PS and PS2, the myriad of games with "Winning Eleven" in the title towards in the end of 2000 has also created confusion.

Most of the columns are self-explanatory, but the Jap-Derived column indicates the original Japanese title that the western version is derived from.  And for those unaware of some of the abbreviations: NES, Nintendo Entertainment System (Famicom in Japan); SNES, Super NES (Super Famicom in Japan); PS, PlayStation; GB, Gameboy; N64, Nintendo 64; PS2, PlayStation 2; GC, Nintendo Gamecube; and XB, Xbox.  Those games marked with a "*" were actually licensed out by Konami to be developed by third party developers, and therefore, are not true Konami games.
