NHL 12 'sizzle' reel showcases new physicality

There's a legal document that accompanied my Canadian birth certificate that plainly states in no uncertain terms that, if I were to one day write about video game for a living, I would be legally required to write about any NHL-based game franchise.

Since I am a law-abiding citizen--both back home in Canada and now here in Los Angeles--I offer you a new sizzle trailer for NHL 12, from developer EA Canada.

Joking aside, the trailer features a few enhancements coming to the series, including NHL 12's new "full contact physics" engine. NHL 12 launches on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 13.
