V7 Entertainment Inc. announced today that the mustachioed players of the Bush Hockey League will skate their way to the Switch later this year.

Featuring an arcade mode designed for couch co-op and a story mode for solo play, the addition of Nintendo's console mean the sports title will launch on four different platforms. Though the dates for the Switch and Xbox One releases have yet to be announced, the developer confirmed that Old Time Hockey will be available on PC and PlayStation 4 starting on March 28.

Our Take
We've been considering the potential of sports games on the Switch for a while, so seeing it added to the Switch's growing list of indie titles is exciting. The simple, two-button "beer mode" controls seem perfect for the split controls of the Joy-Con. Just be careful not to accidentally clobber your opponent with it – save that for when you're on the ice.
