It has been 20 great years of EA's acclaimed NHL franchise.
And to celebrate, they're going back in time. EA has taken the iconic NHL 94 and essentially remade it for inclusion in the upcoming NHL 14 .
It's called the NHL 94 Anniversary Mode and although it's built using the NHL 14 engine, it's very similar to the old-school goodness so many of us remember. You've got the classic button controls, the total lack of penalties (who needs 'em?), a super cool retro presentation, and even that memorable star symbol for the player controlling the puck! The original soundtrack will be included "with a few more surprises" and obviously, the graphics and animations will be much slicker.
Still, this definitely looks like the NHL 94 I knew and loved. Hell, it's still in the other room, waiting to be played on my SNES. But if you don't have that luxury, here's another reason to pick up NHL 14 when it releases on September 10 in North America (September 13 worldwide).
