NHL ’10 Announced

May 15, 2009

ea fight
Today EA sports announced, what was essentially a forgone conclusion, the follow-up to the award winning NHL’09 will be coming out in September. The game boasts “over 200 gameplay refinements”, and up’s the emotion, intensity and toughness required by the actual sport. Did I forget to mention that it includes FIRST PERSON FIGHTING.

A new first-person fighting engine enables players to trade punches with an NHL tough guy. Feel what it’s like to be on the ice in the skates of an NHL player to throw and dodge punches. Grab and tug an opponent’s jersey to land a punch that ignites the fans and sparks your team to victory. Challenge a skill player and an opposing team tough guy will step in to settle the score.

This is amazing. I never really thought that it was something missing from the game, but they had me at hello.

Oh, and for fun 10:00 of hockey fights from March.
