As you may remember, back in December, V7 Entertainment announced its new game Old Time Hockey, a game that harkens back to the glory days of old-school arcade hockey of the long forgotten past. Today, the developer released the game’s second trailer — a 20 second teaser video to be precise — as well as the game’s full team list.
For those that don’t know: Old Time Hockey is inspired by classic arcade hockey games and sports titles like NHL 94 and Blades of Steel, as well as games like NBA Jam and Tecmo Bowl. As you would expect from any game titled Old Time Hockey: it features a swath of 70’s afros, dirty hits, no helmets, bench-clearing brawls, ref abuse, and much more. You know, all of that ol’ fashioned hockey charm?
As mentioned above, V7 has also announced all of the game’s teams that players can play as. According to the developer, upon announcement, it received some concerns over its team representations, and so it has “hit the drawing board” and created some new ones.
The teams are said to be inspired from some of the birthplaces of hockey — you can see the full list below:
Charleston Hinto Brews – Charleston, SC
Fort Edward Acadians – Windsor, NS
Long Island Rumrunners – Commack, NY
Quebec Rebelles – Beauce, QC
Cape Cod Lamplighters – Hyannisport, MA
Warroad Ice Anglers – Warroad, MN
Cascadia Timber Cats – Springfield, OR
Portage Lake Widowmakers – Houghton, MI
Moose Jaw Farmhands – Moose Jaw, SK
Cobalt Silver Blades – Cobalt, ON
The developer also has said it will reveal all of the team’s logos “soon.”
Old Time Hockey is set to release sometime in early 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. Below, you can check out the new trailer:
