As EA Sports prepares to release their 20th Anniversary edition of its NHL game franchise, the people over at EA have decided to throw in a little something special in this year’s edition of the game; the return of NHL 94!
This will take us back to the day. Do you remember those days? Back when Chicago Blackhawks center Jeremy Roenick had super-human moves?
Penalties? What penalties? In NHL 94 Anniversary Mode, there are no penalties; no icing, no offsides, no nothing. Just some knock ‘em down, drag ‘em out old school hockey.
This is going to be a full on retro presentation, complete with blue ice, a retro soundtrack, and classic button control. They’re even throwing in the little star icon under your skates to make us old school gamers feel special.
This mode will also be playable offline, and will include all the classic players we all know and love.
Below is the official trailer from EA Sports. Take a look for yourselves.
NHL 14, which will have New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur on the cover, is set to hit stores on September 10th in North America and September 13th worldwide. It will only be available on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
