3 on 3 NHL Arcade hits PSN tomorrow
It’s a good thing we finally got around to mentioning 3 on 3 NHL Arcade in our Forgotten Trove as it’s about to hit real soon. And by soon, we mean tomorrow.
Fans of fighting hockey can rejoice as there will finally be an arcade version of the game on the market.
Matt Mahar, Lead Designer of 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, took time out on the eve of the game’s PSN debut to talk to the PS Blog about just what kind of action those who pick up the new PSN title can enjoy.
Check after the jump for the details.
Matt explains that 3 on 3 NHL Arcade was created by the same crack team behind the likes ofÂ NHL 09, “winner of 10 sports game of the year awards.” If you’re wondering what kind of modes you’ll be able to play, Arcade provides both online and offline play along with “Power-ups, 40 NHL superstars, stat tracking, and leaderboards”.
All the real life nuances of ice-hockey are there. You can spin away from a hit attempt, knock people out of the rink and declare war on Canada*. No news on price as of yet but, as it’s 2009, you can rest assured that there will be Trophies. In fact, there are 13 of the frosty bad-boys.
We have our fingers crossed that 3 on 3 NHL Arcade is not region specific and all PlayStation Stores will have it available tomorrow.
