26 April, 2019 – Digerati Distribution and developer Loren Lemcke are thrilled to confirm that Super Blood Hockey is out now for Nintendo Switch™. The game is available to download from the eShop with a 20% launch discount for a limited time.

“Super Blood Hockey is a love letter to the 8-bit and 16-bit ice hockey video games of my childhood, back when high action gameplay reigned supreme,” explains the game’s creator, Loren Lemcke. “Players can expect a modern reinterpretation of the classic arcade sports experience with the blood and violence dialled up to eleven.”

Already available on Steam, where it has accrued a powerful 9/10 user rating, the Switch version includes an all-new Franchise Mode that puts players in the shoes of a corrupt coach as they recruit players from prison, utilize performance-enhancing drugs, pull the plug on injured teammates, and use other underhanded tactics to succeed.

PS4 and Xbox versions will follow at a soon-to-be-confirmed date sometime in Q2 2019.
