Back in December of last year, developer V7 Entertainment announced Old Time Hockey, an arcadey sports game that harkens back to the glory days of old-school arcade hockey of yesteryear, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Today, the developer announced that the game is set to launch on March 28, 2017, for PS4 and PC. If you planned on picking up the game on Xbox One, well it appears you will have to wait a bit longer, as V7 has said the game won’t release until sometime during Q2.

Additionally, the developer also subtly announced the game for Nintendo Switch today, but like the Xbox One, didn’t chalked up a release date, and rather left it as “to be announced.”

First time hearing about Old Time Hockey? No problem — here’s a brief overview from V7 Entertainment itself (for a more in-depth overview of the game, click here):

Old Time Hockey features 5-on-5 arcade hockey gameplay where players will their opponents to submit through rough and tumble aggressive hitting and fighting. You are expected to contest for the puck by taking the body and hitting your opponents by throwing elbows, shoulder checks, cross checks, hip checks, and dirty clotheslines. Timely hits allow your team to go on fire and inflict further damage on your opponents causing them to drop the mitts and fight. That’s right, aggressive hockey is back in town!

When it launches, Old Time Hockey will cost $11.99 USD.  To hold you over until launch, the developer has released a new trailer — you can check it out below:
