Officially licensed by the NHL and the NHLPA, NHL Hitz 20-03 unleashes a total hockey experience with even more visually stunning graphics, lightning-fast extreme-style hockey gameplay and improved NHL attributes, plus Hitz signature hard-checking, adrenaline-style sports action. As the only dedicated adrenaline-style hockey videogame franchise for next-generation platforms, NHL Hitz 20-03 showcases over-the-top 3-on-3 (plus goalies) gameplay with players who leap, glide, check, pass and score on would-be defenders. This version of Hitz runs up the score on the hockey videogame category with new features such as the all-new franchise mode, which enhances the single gamer experience by giving users the power to create a team from infancy, grow that team through international competition, earn a franchise, and eventually compete for the Stanley Cup.

NHL Hitz 20-03 includes a new soundtrack. Available for play on the game's jukebox, players have the option to listen to tunes from top acts including Moby, Incubus and Rob Zombie while battling it out in the rink.

All-new game modes add challenge and depth to the gameplay experience. NHL Hitz 20-03's Hockey School features a tutorial from retired Hall of Fame coach and nine-time Stanley Cup champion Scotty Bowman. Veteran fans will also appreciate even more mini-games and an in-depth New Season mode that enables detailed statistics tracking, player trades using trade logic, a playoff tree, and official NHL awards. NHL Hitz 20-03 also suits up with bigger, stronger and faster players, as well as improved goalie logic, behaviour, animations and control, which make it tougher to score.

To add to the gameplay experience, NHL teams take on the same playing style as their real-life counterparts, while two-man motion capture animations provide gamers a more realistic view of the action. Hitz also delivers enhancements to its signature, over-the-top play with secret arenas presented in a unique fantasy setting as well as hidden teams and special players to unlock along the way.
