Video game developer, publisher and distributor 2K Sports announced the release of its new collectible card game NHL SuperCard that features cover athlete Zach Parise, known for his role as the left wing for the Minnesota Wild and captain of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team.
"NHL SuperCard is the perfect mobile app to keep me close to the action whenever I'm on the go," Zach Parise said in a statement. "It's an honor to be selected as the face of NHL SuperCard, and I look forward to helping share the excitement of NHL with hockey and gaming fans in a cool new way as we kick off the 2015 season."
Developed by 2K's Cat Daddy Games in partnership with Visual Concepts, the mobile game lets players build their own teams from a roster of more than 450 popular current as well as legendary hockey players. These include Parise, Paul Coffey, Doug Gilmour, Brett Hull, Cam Neely, Jacques Plante, Felix Potvin, Luc Robitaille, Jeremy Roenick and Scott Stevens.
A mobile game both hardcore sports fans and card gamers will enjoy, the player cards feature seven different rarity levels, so users will have to strategically play the better hand against their opponent to enhance their deck and make their team more competitive.
Players battle in quick games that allow them to add new players to their lineups, as well as duke it out in a week-long season to compete for the Stanley Cup, and rival clash events that allow you to gain rewards.
Feel like your players haven't reached their full potential? Don't worry, because you can train your player cards to improve stick handling, skating and focus skills.
NHL SuperCard is now available to download for iOs, Android and Amazon devices for free, with in-app purchases for additional card packs.
