Really old thread, but trying to nail the 94 release date down is worthwhile.
Here are some more old mag scans, with even more conflicting info.
September 93 GamePro. A preview of NHL 94'. Says both gen and snes versions coming in November. And keeping in mind, the issue probably came out in the middle of July (as they did/do).
Now, the next issue of GamePro. October 93 (probably came out in middle of August) A review of both versions. In the "score" window, the Genesis version is listed as being available in September. The snes version, November.
Interestingly, also in the October 93 GamePro, there is a preview of Madden 94. In the preview, an exact release date is given for it. November 19th. Is that what wound up happening I wonder? If it is, is it possible the NHL's were released on the same date?
Here's a review in the November 93 issue of Game Players of the Genesis version. No dates given in it, but might be interesting to some:
And here's the review (in the Sega Visions sense of the word) in the Oct/Nov 93' Sega Visions. Same deal. No mention of dates.
