It’s June 1st! If you are anything like the DualShockers crew that means you are starting to get very anxious, packing suitcases, booking interviews, and general pre-E3 mayhem including barfing out of sheer joy and e-mailing photos to your friends with the tag-line “Hot Babe I Saw At The Beach” or “Oh my god I just saw a UFO”, devious.
That doesn’t stop a great looking game or two from catching our attention amidst the madness. Wayne Gretzky has just been named the cover athlete of the all-new EA Sports NHL SLAPSHOT which introduces the first-ever hockey stick controller for the Nintendo Wii. The new controller is a simple add-on that the Wii-Mote and Nunchuk plug in to. This extra controller will be included with the game as a bundle. This September, experience the game on the Wii through the eyes of Hall of Fame, record holding hockey master himself Wayne Gretzky.
