Zen Pinball 2 Coming Soon to Wii U


The Nintendo Wii U launch window lineup is about to get one digital game deeper thanks to an unexpected holiday treat from Zen Studios.

Later this month, Zen Pinball 2 will make its debut on the Wii U eShop. Wii U owners will be able to download the Zen Pinball 2 platform for free and then choose which tables to purchase from an initial pool of 25, including the Zen Classic Pack, three Marvel Pinball packs, and a variety of individual releases. Free trial versions will be available for all tables.

These are the tables you’ll have to choose from on day one:

Zen Classic Pack: Tesla, El Dorado, V12, Shaman
Marvel Pinball: Spider-Man, Wolverine, Blade and Iron Man
Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles: The Avengers, Infinity Gauntlet, World War Hulk, Fear Itself
Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virtue: X-Men, Thor, Ghost Rider, Moon Knight
Individual DLC Tables: Plants vs. Zombies, Excalibur, Earth Defense, Sorcerer’s Lair, Paranormal, Mars, Epic Quest, Captain America, Fantastic Four

Zen Pinball 2 will also utilize the GamePad for features such as the ability to control the plunger from the touch screen and play directly on the GamePad when the TV is in use.

Zen’s announcement doesn’t mention pricing, but I’m assuming it’ll be in line with the standard $2.99/240 MS Points price point of tables released on PSN and XBLA.
