EA will officially announce NHL Arcade tomorrow, a three-on-three hockey game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, IGN reports. It is not, we repeat not, a re-release of EA's NHL 94 for the Genesis.

Now that you've come to terms with that distressing fact, what is NHL Arcade? It's "lightning-paced, no rules hockey" according to IGN Sports, with "game-changing power-ups" and giant-noggined professional hockey players. And it runs just ten bucks.

True, it may not be NHL 94 HD, but it sounds enough like the under-appreciated NBA Jam-like hockey arcade game NHL Open Ice to have our attention. We'll see how we feel after the official announcement.

I think its the closest thing Ive seen to NHL Hitz, my all time favorite! Id buy it on the Wii, the the violence was up there in "Mutant League" like standards.
