‘Star Wars Pinball': New Tables PreviewedBy: Sean Patterson - March 25, 2014
Over one year ago, Zen Studios announced that it was expanding Zen Pinball 2 with Star Wars-branded DLC. The Star Wars tables were a mix of the new and old, covering Star Wars movies such as Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series while also highlighting fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett with his own table.
Now, with Star Wars: The Clone Wars out on Netflix and Star Wars Episode VII less than two years away, the hype surrounding the Star Wars brand is rising once again. Zen Studios will soon be riding this hype as it releases even more Star Wars content for Zen Pinball.
The developer today announced that it will be bringing four new Star Wars-branded tables to Star Wars Pinball. In addition to a table with a Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope theme, the new tables will be dedicated to characters such as the droids, “Master of the Force,” and Han Solo himself.
Like last year’s Star Wars tables, the new content will feature lively animated depictions of Star Wars characters interacting with the tables.
Zen today released a preview video for the new content. The trailer focuses specifically on the table themed around everyone’s favorite scruffy-looking Nerfherder:
The new Star Wars Pinball content will make its way to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita sometime this spring.
With the focus this March on big titles such as Titanfall, Infamous: Second Son, and Dark Souls 2, the games release schedule this summer is looking a bit slim. For PlayStation owners, however, this means plenty of time to catch up on the numerous indie games that are appearing on PlayStation consoles – and a little time spent with a pinball game could be just the right diversion for rainy days.
