    Sorry if a dumb question...But will this be a separate purchase if not pre-ordering?

    No details yet on that point. Really hoping it is a stand-alone product, as this would be a PERFECT fit on the Switch.
    I'm really excited for this, though.
    I will buy it as a standalone product but I´ll never pre-order NHL21!!! Give us as a standalone game and you finally will see my money again, EA!
    They just did this a few years ago! It way only "Play Now" which I'm sure this will be also so nothing new to see here. What a feeble attempt to get pre orders!

    Me too. This would be so legit if a separate purchase.

    I like this, always enjoyed NHL 94 way back when.  It's funny how NHL 14 had an NHL 94 mode since it was its 20 year anniversary.  They could've left it in the game for future versions but took  it out.   They left the controller layout option in.  Now NHL 94 is back and a new reason to preorder.

    I’ve been playing “NHL Rewind” for years
    (NHL 94 with updated rosters)

    I would play it with 94 rosters.

    Did ‘94 have out of town highlights like ‘95. I loved watching the updates during playoff mode. I remember setting up Canadian teams in one conference then US in the other. I’d draw lots out of a cups with folded pieces of paper. Those were the days lmao

    This, I think it was NHL 18 that had the NHL 94 mode.

    There’s nothing stopping you from doing that…
    Or playing any of the other versions with rosters from basically every year since then.
    All these are better choices than what EA will do here I’m sure

    I think it was NHL 14. And the mode was terrible. NHL 94 coloring with NHL 14 graphics and controls

    Yep, that was half-baked, at best. This looks a lot better; I wonder if they partnered with anyone affiliated with making the NHL 94 updates/mods?
    Looks like it's only for digital preorders. But of course no one will confirm that. Why does EA feel the need to be so secretive. Jesus Christ, I'm going to pre-order the game. Just tell me what versions come with this so I know where/how to do it. I'd much rather have the physical copy, but not if I don't get 94.
    My prediction is that there will be subtle differences between this and the actual NHL 94 that will make the experience slightly worse. Would prefer this on Switch as to me it feels weird to use my PS4 to play Genesis games, whereas retro games feel normal on Switch. And the best hockey game on Switch right now is Super Blood Hockey...
    But I guess I might as well since it is free.
