3 on 3 NHL Arcade is an NHL-licensed arcade-style hockey sports game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, using the NHL 09 engine. The game was developed by NHL 09's EA Canada under the EA Sports Freestyle banner.

A demo for the game is available on the PlayStation 3 version of NHL 11 and NHL 12. For NHL 13, there is a code to unlock the whole game.

Gameplay[edit]

As the name implies, the game is pared down to single contests of three NHL players plus one goalie per team, who are big head versions of their actual selves. Online gamers have nicknamed the game 'Blorp' as a shoutout to the sound effects heard within the game's menu. The game allows for multiplayer online and off-line play. The game is played on a 'first to...' basis rather than within a set time limit, meaning there can be a near-unlimited amount of periods per match. Powerups can be obtained which can give advantages to either team.
