For its time, SWWS97 was considered to be one of the best football games available on the market, although was displaced in the coming years by more advanced rivals. The game is not licensed by FIFA so cannot use real team or player names, however it attempts to stick as close as possible to the 1996 football season and allow users to rename players should they see fit. Commentary was offered by Gary Bloom, notable for commentating on the sport across various British TV channels.
The game was re-released for Windows PCs in 1997 under the title of Sega Worldwide Soccer PC (セガワールドワイドサッカーＰＣ).
During development, Sega Worldwide Soccer 97 was known simply as Worldwide Soccer. The original name can still be seen in backgrounds of menu screens.
