More On: Super Blood Hockey

Released a year and a half ago on PC, Super Blood Hockey is ready to make its jump to the small screen and has debuted on the Nintendo Switch. This is your first chance to take the game with you that doesn't require a really small monitor with a very long extension cord. It's a homage to the 8 and 16 bit glory days go hockey gaming, ala Blades of Steel and the like, but with more blood, and an infirmary. It looks awesome and has reviewed extremely well across various critical and user review sites. The key Features:

  • Use superior skating, positioning, strategy and blood-splattering violence
  • Take on the world in a global tournament, where failure results in execution
  • Varied challenges and scenarios, including Turbo Mode and 12 vs 12 Mega Rumble
  • Paint the ice with the blood of your friends in 4-player local multiplayer
  • Franchise Mode: Create, recruit and manage your own custom team of inmates in a futuristic world of dystopic blood sports
  • Enjoy the retro beats of an original soundtrack by chiptunist Shawn Daley

Already available on Steam, where it has accrued a powerful 9/10 user rating, the Switch version includes an all-new Franchise Mode that puts players in the shoes of a corrupt coach as they recruit players from prison, utilize performance-enhancing drugs, pull the plug on injured teammates, and use other underhanded tactics to succeed.

PS4 and Xbox versions will follow at a soon-to-be-confirmed date sometime in Q2 2019.
