Super Blood Hockey, the game that expertly combines the totally non-lethal sport of ice hockey with the kind of lethal act of beating other players into a bloody pulp, is officially headed to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

The whole point of Super Blood Hockey is to win ice hockey matches however you can, even if that means using illegal performance enhancing drugs and beating up your opponents. It’s a homage to the golden days of 8-bit and 16-bit games, except with a lot more gore. There’s also pixelated buttocks.

Game creator Loren Lemcke has teamed up with Digerati Distribution and Kittehface Software to make the console ports a reality. As the game (which is currently only available on Steam) is best played with a gamepad, although keyboard support does exist, console ports only made sense.

All versions of the game will also have a new Franchise Mode, where you must create, recruit, and manage your own custom team of inmates – uh, hockey players – in a futuristic world of dystopic blood sports. You have to manage your team’s diets, exercise schedule, illegal pharmaceutical drug regimen, and more!

The price of the game is also going to increase to $15 in order to match the amount of content now offered, so pick Super Blood Hockey up now on Steam if you still want the current price of $7.99.

The game will be launching on Nintendo Switch on a yet to be confirmed date in April, while the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are set to follow sometime in Q2 2019.
