EA Sports Goes Arcadey With New Big Headed Hockey Game

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.
