A recent NHL 20 update has added Snoop Dogg into the game as a playable character and commentator. The patch released on December 5, officially adding the iconic rapper into the game — and it’s pretty great.Snoop Dogg is no stranger to the NHL. Earlier this year, he made an appearance at an LA Kings game, serving as a guest play-by-play announcer.
Snoop Dogg took to Twitter to announce his addition to NHL 20, saying, “Ice hockey really be lit now with me in the booth!!” Based on the announcement trailer, Snoop won’t be your traditional announcer and will bring some of his uniqueness to the game.
As they play, players can hear Snoop Dogg commentating games, but will also be able to use him as a playable character in the World of Chel mode.
It seems like EA is having a little bit of fun with this year’s NHL game, adding in NFL and NBA players into the game.
Earlier this year, GameSpot reported that EA might bring in Snoop Dogg as a guest commentator, as well as Will Ferrell, Drake, and Wayne Gretzky.
So far, Snoop Dogg is the only commentator to be added to the game, but this should give players hope that there might be some more celebrity cameos in the future.
While EA appears to be having fun the NHL franchise, a player in FIFA 20 was recently removed after seemingly making a pro-Nazi comment.
