    According to Kotaku, NHL 2K9 will be making an appearance on the Wii! Even Mario was excited as he showed up to the event as well...

    This wasn't too long. It took DS well over 2 years for its first NHL or WWE game...

    Canadians, adhering to stereotypes is what we do.

    Well technically it does but I'm sure most of you will not play it anyway [​IMG]

    I hope this game doesn't suck, a Wii Hockey game could be awesome. NHL 2k8 for mostly everything was pretty crappy in comparison to NHL 08 from EA

    That isn't an NHL game. It just has a few NHL players is all.

    I'm talking full-fledged 30 team mayhem!!! I pretend Backyard Hockey doesn't exist.

    Thank god, I thought I'd never see a hockey game for Wii.

    I personally always enjoyed the 2K series games over EA's NHL games, they were the only ones I enjoyed playing on Xbox.

    If they do the controls right, this could be an excellent game. If they figure out a way to use the Wii Remote to control certain actions with motion, such as passing or possibly even shooting, then that would be pretty cool. They should also throw in the option to use a GC controller too if possible.

    Anyway, this is great news.

    lol, for a second there I thought I was the only American person posting in this topic, but I see theclaw is also from the US. [​IMG]

    I might have to get a Wii just because of this, hopefully EA starts up on this too [​IMG]

    Seeing as several main admins of GBAtemp are Europeans, it's kind of interesting to see their take on the emulation/homebrew/etc scene.
