Hockey Nations 2011: New Xperia Play Exclusive Released

By Tina Chubb - Apr 15, 2011

Just last month we announced that Gamelofts’ BackStab and N.O.V.A. 2 games were both being released as exclusives for the Android-run Sony Ericsson Xperia Play handset. Now we have received word that yet another Xperia Play exclusive has recently been released.

The game we are talking about is Hockey Nations 2011, which has previously been released for the Apple iPhone. In fact, according to Jon Jordan over at, Keith gave the iPhone version a Pocket Gamer Silver award when he reviewed it.

UK developer Distinctive Wireless is said to have converted the Android version of its popular Hockey Nations 2011 game especially for the Xperia Play’s PlayStation-certified buttons and the analog controls. The game includes 6 modes, 40 city teams and 18 international teams.

It also features multiple camera angles, a multiplayer mode that enables users to play with friends via Bluetooth or local Wi-Fi and options such as proper offensive / defensive strategies. It also allows players to throw off their gloves and helmet and participate in a mini-game punch-up.

You can view a video of the game in action via the website. Does Hockey Nations 2011 sound and look like a game that you’d enjoy playing?
