"NHL 2K10 is Party Now!"
- Alex Ovechkin
With 2K Sports' NHL 2K10 for the Wii™ system, fans can enjoy a full-featured version of their favorite hockey game, complete with online multiplayer. With a new franchise mode, full online play, gameplay improvements like stumble shots and stick lifts, and Wii-exclusive multiplayer modes, NHL 2K10 is a party like no other. NHL 2K10 is the only licensed NHL game that lets you challenge your friends to a quick pick-up game online and play with your own unique, player-created team. This year, nearly every game mode and feature you can find on NHL 2K10 for the Xbox 360® or the PLAYSTATION®3 system is also available on the Wii version. In fact, NHL 2K10 for Wii has more game modes than any other console version thanks to the addition of the Wii-exclusive Mii Super Skills Competition.
MII SUPER SKILLS COMPETITION - In this new, Wii-exclusive pick-up-and-play mode, 1-4 players can compete on- or off-line in a series of mini-games based on the NHL All-Star Skills Competition using their own unique Mii avatars.
• Hardest Shot - Compete with your friends to see who can shoot the puck with the highest velocity
• Fastest Skater - Skate around the rink with the quickest lap time possible
• Accuracy Shooting - Hit as many targets as you can with a limited amount of pucks
• Breakaway Challenge - Show off your speed shooting skills as you hustle down the ice to score as many goals as possible
• Goalie Supersave - See who has the quickest reflexes and can make highlight reel saves in the net
FULL ONLINE MODES - For the first time ever, enjoy full online support for Wii, including multiplayer match-ups, downloadable rosters, online leagues, tournaments, leaderboards and the ability to use created teams in Team Up mode - virtually everything you can do with the other console versions of NHL 2K10, you can do with Wii.
WII MOTIONPLUS AND WII SPEAK SUPPORT - Enjoy true online voice chat capabilities via WiiSpeak as you challenge your friends online, and perfect the precise one-to-one control with Wii MotionPlus.
NHL 2K10 from 2K Sports will be available on Wii on September 15. For more details, visit http://www.2ksports.com/games/nhl2k10.
