Check out our April 3rd patch details here.

NHL for Nintendo Switch?

If you plan on picking up a switch in the next year or so, would you like to see an NHL for it? I know the hardware isn't up to X1 or PS4 standards but after seeing some recent benchmarks a decent looking hockey game could for sure be made for the system.

I'd really enjoy playing some NHL while riding the metro to and from work, or while on a trip.

  • The switch version would have to be the engine and game from PS3 / Xbox 360
  • Nintendo Switch will flop.

    Cart based will = hacked in a few months just like everything else nintendo make lol.

  • KoryDub, thanks for the information you have provided. With respect to the fact that NHL games are niche games, and that it is not easy to port a game to a new system, I ask that the team please keep an open mind about NHL on the Switch in the future. Even if it cannot be done this year, or next year, I would be absolutely delighted if eventually an NHL game came on the Switch. I don't know what exactly it would take for the EA team to change their minds, but so far the Switch has been selling like crazy so that's a good start. KoryDub, I don't know if it is within the realm of possibility that we can do anything at all to sway the decision makers at EA, but if there is anything we can do, I'd love to hear it.
  • any word of a NHL release on the Gamecast?

    Yes because the 3ds has failed so miserably with cartridges because of them being hacked. So funny how people don't understand tech. The Switch is selling amazingly. The reason for the cartridge was for more storage. Cartridges can hold more than DVDs and are much smaller.
