NHL 2K9 will offer fans the opportunity to play like the pros using the Wii Remote controller as a hockey stick, and play hockey in a wholly unique experience like never before.

Dedicated fans will enjoy this on-the-ice experience like never before as NHL 2K9 brings the fun back to hockey video games.

NHL 2K9 offers brand-new gameplay features including user-friendly controls, expanded superstar moves, friendly ZamboniĀ® competitions, a revamped fighting engine, custom Stanley Cup™ celebrations, and six-on-six online capability. As the first and only officially licensed NHL and NHLPA video game for Wii, NHL 2K9 will also provide fans with a chance to play like the pros using the Wii Remote™ as a hockey stick, a wholly unique and entertaining experience.

Below is the full list of tracks in NHL 2K9:

  • Inner Circle -- Bad Boys
  • Joe Satriani -- Crowd Chant

"For NHL 2K9 we wanted to create an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack that will set the mood for the intensity of hockey," said Tim Rosa, 2K Sports’ director of brand and lifestyle marketing. "We have also licensed a few of the more popular hockey stadium songs, so when a player goes to the penalty box after a fight, gamers will hear tracks such as “Bad Boys” from Inner Circle or “Knocked Down” by Pennywise after a big hit, as they do in hockey stadiums across North America. For NHL 2K9 we have licensed a great collection of songs that complement the authenticity and spirit of the game."

A free demo is now available for download through Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation Network. Fans will have an early opportunity to experience the new simplified controls and relive the excitement of this past season’s thrilling Stanley Cup Final in a brief three minute period as either the Pittsburgh Penguins or Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

Developed by Visual Concepts, NHL 2K9, rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and older, is now available for Xbox 360, Wii, PS3 and PS2.
