First screenshots, updated box art for NHL 2K10

I guess 2K Sports just remembered that their NBA 2K franchise isn’t the only one that’s celebrating its tenth anniversary, because they sent us some updated box art for NHL 2K10. As you can see in the gallery, the cover now features a gold “1999-2009 Tenth Anniversary” banner, just like the Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K10. The shot of a toothless Alexander Ovechkin remains intact, though.

We’ve also got the first screenshots of NHL 2K10 — there are eleven of the PS3/360 version and six of the Wii version. They’re looking pretty good! And remember, if you’re looking for a hockey game on the Wii, NHL 2K10 is your only option; EA Sports is only making NHL 10 for the PS3 and 360.

This year’s version of NHL 2K seems to be adding a lot of the same things that EA Canada is adding to NHL 10, like fake shots and being able to shoot from your knees. For all the details on the HD and Wii versions of the game, hit up IGN’s feature blowout.
