NHL 14 To Include an NHL 94 Anniversary Mode
Written Thursday, July 11, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
EA Sports has chosen to commemorate the 20th anniversary of one of the NHL franchise's finest moments with an NHL 94 Anniversary Mode in NHL 14, using the new game's engine with all of the retro features of the original SEGA Genesis/ Mega Drive and SNES classic.
It'll feature the classic top down isometric perspective with the classic EA star player indicators and the retro soundtrack from the original 1993 title, with organ music during games and retro-style art on the ice itself. Modern day NHL 14 stats will feed into the NHL 94 mode, apparently.
No doubt the Chicago Blackhawks will still be a force to be reckoned with too. They were famously tough to beat in NHL 94, with players like Jeremy Roenick, Chris Chelios and Ed Belfour on the team. NHL 14 complete with its NHL 94 Anniversary Mode is out on September 10th in North America and September 13th in Europe.
