Along with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong returns as a main character, while Cranky Kong is playable for the first time!

(£3.49)

pr@nintendo.co.uk
Game Description: Prepare to face-off for one of the most faithful sports simulations on the NES™. Ice Hockey offers straightforward fun to just jump in and play, either solo or against a friend, yet also requires tactical skills for players who want to fine-tune their team. You can customise each squad member, selecting from three different body types, affecting their offence and defence. Leaner players are faster and better in a face-off, while heavier players have stronger body checks and shooting skills.

This is the US version of the game.
