First EA SPORTS NHL Title on Wii to Include Hockey Stick Controller
Electronic Arts Inc. revealed today that EA SPORTS™ is developing their first ever NHL® hockey title for the Wii™ Console, NHL®SLAPSHOT, and that NHL Hall of Famer, Wayne Gretzky, will grace the cover.NHL®SLAPSHOT introduces a revolutionary hockey stick controller that allows players to shoot, pass and body check just like the pros. In addition to having his likeness on the front of all packaging, Gretzky will be available as a playable character when NHL® SLAPSHOT is available in retail stores this September.
“EA SPORTS™ has been making great hockey games in Canada for 20 years now, and the team behind the game is really passionate about the sport,” said Gretzky. “Being on the cover of the new Wii version of the game is exciting and is probably going to make me a bit cooler in the eyes of my kids.”
Gretzky is an NHL legend who accumulated a long list of accomplishments and awards during his 21 year career as a player in the NHL. He currently holds 40 regular-season records, 15 playoff records, six All-Star records, and is the only NHL player to have ever recorded 200 points in a season. Since retiring as a player from the NHL, Gretzky has been very active in the hockey world, serving as Executive Director of the gold medal winning, 2002 Canadian men’s national ice hockey team, and acting as a special advisor to the gold medal winning, 2010 Canadian men’s national ice hockey team.
“Making our games as close to the real thing has always been our focus,” says Creative Director, David Littman. “Now we are giving them an actual plastic hockey stick that the Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ controllers plug into. Players can then use the new NHL® SLAPSHOTHockey Stick to do all the moves in the game.”
To continue the celebration of our 40th Anniversary, John teamed up with New York’s hottest fashion accessories brand to introduce a Numbered, Limited Edition Fluevog/Nooka Timepiece.
Given that questioning conformity, being on the cutting edge of neo-futuristic designs mixed with Art Nouveau elements, and designing goods that bring an overflowing flood of compliments to the wearer, are traits that are equally applicable to both brands, it’s no wonder they wound up together.
The initial inspiration for the collaboration happened one morning on the corner of Prince and Mulberry in New York’s Soho. Waiting for his retail store to open for the day, John realized he had no idea what time it was, after leaving his watch at a sushi restaurant the night before (long story, but it involves wasabi). Asking a passerby for the time, John was amazed at the unique display of time-telling from this stranger’s timepiece. A bit flabbergasted at the design, John asked the kind stranger (who we later found out was UK Pop sensationLittle Boots) who made the mind-blowing watch, to which the reply came “It’s Nooka of course!”
“I was inspired by the clean, but intricate design,’” says John Fluevog. “It was an exciting project that blossomed into a collaboration between two brands that remain true to their artistic sensibilities. Now there really is a time piece that reminds you to take Soul Time.”
A watermarked Fluevog Angel is printed on the popular Nooka zot face, while the white Italian leather band features a ‘Fluevog Red’ accent stitch. The casing on the back reveals a message from John and each piece’s unique number, and is attached with one ‘Fluevog Blue’ screw for each decade the company has been in business. Lastly, twice a day at 5:15, the watch will automatically release a vibration alert to remind you to take Soul Time. The last sentence is untrue. The Limited Edition piece is sold only at the Nooka Online store, and at Fluevog stores across Canada and the United States.
