Old Time Hockey announced for Switch

Vancouver, British Columbia, Feb 23, 2017 – V7 Entertainment Inc. is very excited to announce that Old Time Hockey will be officially launching on Steam and PS4, March 28!

Old Time Hockey channels classic arcade style action (NHL 94, Blades of Steel, and Tecmo Bowl to name a few) with an old-school aesthetic from the 70’s era. No helmets, bench clearing brawls, and way too many mustaches to count can all be found in the Bush Hockey League.

Control schemes range from arcade 2-button controls, beer mode (one-handed) control scheme to more modern style. Play competitively or cooperatively on the couch with your friends in arcade mode, or take to the ice as the worst team in the Bush Hockey League in the hijinks-filled story mode!
