Zen Studios Takes Pinball to a Galaxy Far, Far Away


Think Zen Studios is running out of table ideas for its suite of digital download pinball games? Ha, think again!

Zen’s next adventure in virtual orb flipping will take pinball wizards to the sci-fi universe of Star Wars. Yes, Star Wars! Star Wars Pinball will be a whole new collection of licensed tables, similar to the Marvel Pinball series, covering iconic moments and beloved characters from the Lucasfilm franchise.

“It’s been over 30 years since Star Wars, videogames, and solid state pinball all burst onto the entertainment scene, and their popularity endures today. We’re excited to be combining all three for the very first time,” said Neil Sorens, Zen Studios’ Creative Director. “Our designers are huge Star Wars fans, and you can expect every detail in every table to reflect their passion for the Star Wars universe.”

Star Wars Pinball is scheduled to launch later this month with an initial batch of three tables, including themes for Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The game will be available as DLC for Pinball FX2 on XBLA and Windows 8, Zen Pinball 2 on PSN for PS3 and Vita (with Cross-Buy), Zen Pinball 2 on the Mac App Store and Zen Pinball on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
