The last hockey game on handhelds was NHL 07 on PSP. Last NHL game on PC was 09.

Hockey is pretty much dead outside of console systems

I see Madden and Fifa doing well. So, why not bring out a hockey game? I am waiting for one on this system. I think it would sell great, your thoughts.


NHL 07 on PSP is awesome and plays really well.

3DS could definitely do it but EA won't.

I'd love to see one, but it's clear EA wants nothing to do with handhelds (FIFA Soccer has just been roster/kit updates on the Vita and they stopped making Madden after one year) and Nintendo currently.

It's a shame because there are adults like me that enjoy Nintendo's consoles/handhelds and would like to play sports games on them as well, instead of having to buy a separate console for 4-5 games.

Well now that Stompin Tom is dead. The hockey song would be awesome on a hockey game! So why not on a handheld? Yeah I know EA all to well and damn them! But Konami could bring back Blades of steel. I think almost every hockey fan would buy it!

I have the vita too but no hockey games. Sadly cant find this one either. The handheld market is doing great. I would bring out the franchise names AAA titles for sure.

I feel it would have a hard time trying to find the puck on a tiny 3DS screen. I''m perfectly fine playing NHL on PS3.


Not on a 3DSXL screen. Would look great! Plus you could ad that dumb glow puck option too. I think it would be a great addition to the handhelds and boost sales of them too.

I know a lot of people trash on EA for rightful reasons, including myself, but NHL 2002 was the best hockey game ever. That commentary was crazy, and the gameplay was actually okay.
