EA Going Simple with 3-on-3 NHL Arcade

Remember NHL Open Ice Challenge? It was a sweet digitized hockey title from Midway that tried to follow up on the success of NBA Jam. They later followed that up with the awesome NHL Hitz series. Since then, the arcade hockey genre has met a slow death… until now! Over dramatic writing aside, EA is trying their hand at the sub-genre with the Live Arcade and PSN title 3-on-3 NHL Arcade. One would assume the game will be 3-on-3 and have the NHL license. Oh, you figured that out yourself?

The game is being handled by EA Canada, who has delivered in spades with the core NHL franchise. The $10 title is due in February.
