Get ready to test your Jedi reflexes like never before: Star Wars Pinball, a new downloadable game developed by Zen Studios in partnership with LucasArts, is coming later this month.
Star Wars Pinball celebrates the rich legacy of the saga, from the classic films to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, featuring authentic Star Wars moments, imagery, and characters. An initial three-table pack is themed around fan favorites, including The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, with beautiful art and sounds that capture the spirit of Star Wars. As developed by Zen Studios, industry leaders in video game pinball, Star Wars Pinball features unique challenges, surprises, and inventive design, making for a thrilling experience that both Star Wars and pinball fans will love.
Each table features a different iconic moment from the Star Wars universe, with interactive 3D characters and innovative gameplay. With the first table release, players will take control of characters such as Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano. Complete certain objectives and watch as Boba Fett is pulled into the Sarlacc, Anakin and Ahsoka fight battle droids, and Luke Skywalker takes on Stormtroopers. Online functionality will connect players from around the world: players can post their scores to global leaderboards, experience in-game friend challenges, local hotseat, online multiplayer, and a host of other features. “It’s been over 30 years since Star Wars, video games, 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 will be available on the Apple App Store, Google Play, and will also be available as downloadable content for Pinball FX2 on Xbox LIVE Arcade and Windows 8, Zen Pinball 2 on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita as Cross-Buy entitled content, Zen Pinball 2 on the Mac App Store and Zen Pinball on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
