NHL 2K3’s New Goalie Positioning

SEGA® of America, Inc. announced today a hat-trick of innovative game features for “SEGA Sports™ NHL®2K3” that will send video game pucks to the back of the net. Hitting store shelves next week for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, followed soon after by the launch on the Xbox™ video game system from Microsoft® and the Nintendo GameCube™, “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” is revolutionizing the way hockey is played with new features not found in other hockey video games. With an all-new goalie system called Reactive Goalie Positioning, “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” allows goaltenders to react to slap shots, wristers, one-timers and deflections with all the moves and abilities of their real-life counterparts. While other hockey games feature goalies without specific player attributes, who attempt saves with limited movements, “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” shows goalies playing the position as it is meant to be played. In “NHL 2K3,” goalies can move side-to-side, and from dive to save, without ever having to return to a center or idle position, allowing them to make save upon save with the most realistic goalie maneuvers of any hockey video game. “The days of static goalies with limited and unrealistic movements are over,” says Greg Thomas, president of Visual Concepts Entertainment, a SEGA development studio. “Goalies use every limb to try and stop pucks from going to the back of the net. That is how the game of hockey is played, so that’s exactly how we want ‘NHL 2K3’ to be played.” Also new in “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” is Complete Lines Control. Gone are the days of flipping back to the menu to set offensive and defensive strategies. Now gamers have the ability to rotate offensive, defensive, power play and penalty kill lines independently and set strategies for each of these lines on the fly. Two other video hockey game firsts are featured in “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3,” including new Board Pinning, where gamers can battle it out for the puck up against the boards. With the ability to pin players against the boards and dig for the puck with multiple control options, “grinding for the puck” has taken on a whole new meaning. “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” is also the first and only hockey video game to be playable online via the Xbox. “SEGA Sports NHL 2K3” is endorsed by Philadelphia Flyer Jeremy Roenick and will be available at retailers nationwide for $69.99 CDN.
