2K Brings Card-Collecting to Smartphones with NHL SuperCard

November 17, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

2K Sports is known for some of the best sports video games like NBA 2K15, and NHL 2K15. Along with those games, the company likes to bring out a few apps for iOS and Android like NHL SuperCard. When many of us were younger, we would collect cards of our favorite athletes, I’m sure there are many of us with booklets of trading cards still at home. 2K brings that to the 21st century with their SuperCard app. Allowing you to collect cards with your smartphone or tablet, except now you don’t have to worry about losing them or damaging them.

NHL SuperCard has over 450 active and legendary players in the NHL. Additionally, users can collect cards, and challenge others around the world in games, season-based tournaments as well as special in-game events. A few of the other features included here are the ability to customize player stats, and train which provides maximum potential for each card available.

In the season mode, gamers are able t compete with other players in a simulated NHL season, which lasts about a week. Players can earn significant rewards when playing in season mode. With car enhancements, you are also able to increase player ratings through various enhancement-driven cards that are available throughout the game.

This isn’t the first SuperCard game that 2K Sports has created and made available. Last year, they started this initiative with WWE SuperCard shortly after releasing WWE 2K15 and it was a huge success. This year they opted to bring it to their NHL franchise and likely will bring it to their NBA franchise either this year or next year. Now this game is free to download. However there are in-app purchases, which are actually not mandatory to take full advantage of the game. In-App Purchases range from $1.99 up to $9.99 per item. Which is a pretty big money grab for 2K Sports.

NHL SuperCard is available on the Play Store, and is compatible with Android 2.3 and above (which means just about everyone should be able to play it). It is also compatible with Tablets, but does not have a tablet-optimized version of the app, unfortunately.
