Ice Hockey Nations (by Distinctive) sneak peek

Distinctive follows up their Rugby Nations game with the first full Ice Hockey Simulation game to appear on iPhone, ‘Hockey Nations 2010’.

Ice Hockey has, so far, been under represented on iPhone & iPod Touch and Distinctive have used their extensive sports game development experience to bring this dynamic sport to the App Store.

Working with motion capture specialists ‘Centroid 3D’ and players from Sheffield Scimitars, the game features realistic, silky smooth, animation so you feel part of the action – without the risk of broken bones or concussion.

Hockey Nations 2010 is a fast-paced and fun game that recreates the excitement and strategy of the sport on the small screen.

Hockey nations will be launched in March 2010 at price of $4.99

Features include:
  • The first full 6 on 6 Ice Hockey simulation game on iPhone/iPod Touch.
  • Take control using touchscreen d-pad and control buttons.
  • Make line changes at the touch of a button.
  • Sin-bin and powerplays
  • Real player movement animation using motion capture.
  • 14 National teams to choose from.
  • Quick play, practice, tournament and league game modes.
  • No waiting for the Zamboni in between periods.

OMG I LOVE YOU!!!! As an actual hockey goalie, I will probably be both your greatest fan and critic.
If you need any help with stats, names, info, or anything game related, drop me a line here, I'll be more than glad to help.

i may be wrong but Im pretty sure there is no nhl. Otherwise it would have a different name and not be based around international.

Anywho I really am looking forward to this. It should be great. Any more info??

Seeing the title it will most likely be international teams only. I must say I don't care too much, I'm only interested in gameplay and will probably get this no matter what... Is it Q1 already? yes it is! But with motion capture done last week, it will be a little while... 31 March?
