2K Sports is pleased to announce NHL 2K11, the latest installment in the popular ice hockey franchise, is available now exclusively on the Wii system. NHL 2K11 – which features Vancouver Canucks assistant captain Ryan Kesler as the cover athlete – brings the most authentic hockey experience to Wii with improved visuals, more realistic gameplay, the most responsive controls found in a hockey video game and new pick-up-and-play modes.
"This year NHL 2K11 delivers the most authentic hockey action on Wii," said Jason Argent, vice president of marketing for 2K Sports. "Our full NHL development resources were devoted to Wii this year, which allowed us to take the game to the next level. Simply put, NHL 2K11 is THE hockey game to buy on Wii this season"
NHL 2K11 is the definitive NHL simulation experience that mixes accessibility with all the authenticity and exacting detail that hockey fans demand. The game provides players with the ability to execute real-time (one-to-one) dekes, puck juggling, shooting, passing and defensive maneuvers delivered by the accuracy of Wii MotionPlus, and broken sticks to add another layer of depth to the authentic hockey action. To bring these incredibly accurate gameplay elements to life, 2K Sports improved player models and AI, added more responsive skating, and increased the level of detail in team jerseys, equipment, and arenas. Also included is the all-new Road to the Cup mode featuring Mii characters battling in mini-games, trivia challenges and skills competitions for up to four players on- or off-line.
