3 on 3 NHL Arcade Xbox 360/PS3 downloadable game screenshot

EA has announced 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, an all-new downloadable hockey game from the EA Sports Freestyle label, developed by EA Canada.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is a no-rules barred, fast paced, “hockey experience that gamers of all types can enjoy”. It will be available to download in February of 2009 on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points and on the PlayStation Network for $9.99.

Due to the no-rules play of the game, players can deliver devastating checks to send their opponents flying over the boards, check the goalies and play some arcadey, action focused hockey. Graphically the players have an exaggerated look with 40 of the top NHL stars representing every team. The game even features power-ups that fall down onto the ice and can change the outcome of the game.

There are two different control schemes that players will be able to choose from that will let you pass, shoot, hit and break out all your trick moves with ease, no matter your skill level. There’s also a more advanced “Skill Stick” control scheme taken from NHL 09.

3 On 3 NHL Arcade also has everything players have come to expect from an EA Sports game, including ranked matches, the ability for three players on one console to play three other players online and more.

“Available through a simple digital download, 3 on 3 NHL Arcade is perfect for sports fans who want to experience the thrill of NHL hockey at a great value without worrying about the rules of the sport,” said Dave McCarthy, vice president, EA SPORTS. “Accessibility is really important. We have worked to make sure that come February, 3 on 3 NHL Arcade is a lot of fun for players of all skill levels.”
