EA Sports Reveal 'NHL '94 Anniversary' Remake In NHL '14

NHL-94-Anniversary-EditionIf for whatever reason you weren't glued to Electronic Arts' FIFA Soccer upon its début in 1993, you were most likely instead enjoying its ice rink counterpart. If so, you'll be pleased to know that much to our surprise, the software giant has just revealed all new plans for the latest instalment in the ice hockey series to also include a HD remaster of NHL '94.

This incredible revelation comes just mere hours after our recent news story regarding one of EA's older ice hockey titles - one where fans of the classics had updated the in-game rosters to match that of the current line-ups. Instead of relying on fan-made efforts, we can now look forward to once again enjoying the Mega Drive, Super Nintendo and Mega CD classic on modern consoles with a much deserved update.

EA Sports recently updated their website to reveal this fantastic news to retro gamers around the world and had the following to say about it.

Forget all the rules. Penalties? Get out of here! Offsides? Nope! Icings? Not a chance! Just old school NHL ‘94­-style gameplay that uses classic button controls to deliver big hits, real fights, dirty dangles and sick snipes! You can even celebrate those moves with a new take on classic goal celebrations.

All built within the NHL 14 game engine, NHL ’94 Anniversary Mode showcases its hockey video gaming roots through a retro presentation including blue ice, classic star-shaped player indicators, 16-bit arena powerbars, no adboards, and throwback organ music. Relive the glory days of NHL ‘94 with NHL '94 Anniversary Mode in NHL 14!

NHL 14 hits store shelves on September 10th, only on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The last NHL game I bought had the inclusion of old school control scheme, so this seems the next logical step. Totally gonna get this, just a shame NHL games in the UK barely drop in price the likes of Madden and FIFA.
