Licensed official computer game of the 1990 FIFA World Cup held in Italy.
 Initially released in the U.S. some months earlier in 1989 as RICK DAVIS'S WORLD TROPHY SOCCER.
 Released separately in 512k and 1MB versions, the 512k release of WORLD CUP SOCCER: ITALIA '90 lacks some (if not all) of the sampled sounds featured in the 1MB release.
 Original release game contents contained a manual that documents the history of the World Cup from 1930-1990 (including World Cup final results), as well as World Cup firsts and unusual facts. Additionally, a large colour wall chart was bundled with the game, enabling football/soccer enthusiasts to complete the results of the World Cup Italia '90 matches and tally points for the teams in each group.
