NHL 96 is a sports game (focused on ice hockey) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released in North America and Europe, but not Japan. A Game Boy version was also released.

Gameplay

The game had three game modes: Exhibition, Season and Playoffs. The length of the season could be adjusted between 48 games or 82 games. Three new animations were added to the ending of a fight.

As in the real-world sport of hockey, the object is to score more goals than the opposing team to win the game.

Teams

Since the game is licensed by the National Hockey League and it's Player's Association, all real-world NHL teams and players from that year are included in the game with the exception of the Colorado Avalanche. That franchise was still listed in the game as the Quebec Nordiques. (The Nordiques relocated to Colorado during the summer of 1995.)

Box art

The box art for the game has a still shot of Scott Stevens from the New Jersey Devils and Steve Yzerman of the Detroit Red Wings because both the Devils and the Red Wings faced each other in the previous season's Stanley Cup Final.
