Star Wars Pinball is releasing today as DLC for Zen Pinball 2 on PlayStation Network for PS3 and PS Vita as Cross-Buy entitled content. This first pack of tables will cost $9.99. If you have not yet downloaded Zen Pinball 2, you probably should, its really fun – the download is free, and will give you access to the Star Wars tables which you can even demo to make sure you like the game!
The first set of tables includes Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Here is what you can expect from The Clone Wars table, set to release later today on PSN.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars table embraces the striking artistic style and energy of the series and is a perfect fit for a high-energy pinball table. The incredible art, momentous light saber battles, and exhilarating action that makes the series so enjoyable translates naturally into an amazing pinball experience.
Set between the events of the Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars pinball table features Anakin Skywalker and his apprentice, Ahsoka Tano, both represented as 3D characters, as well as Asajj Ventress, Savage Opress and battle Droids. The table would not be complete without a Republic attack gunship, which is especially spectacular when the table is played in 3D.
To start the the table missions, you need to light the lamps on the center of the playfield that spell out “Council” by shooting the left and right ramps on the table. After spelling the words Council, the ramp’s right front side will lower, providing a path to the hole to activate the main missions.
This is a very interesting spin on pinball, I’m excited to see what people have to say about this. Zen Pinball has always been fun, they are just taking it to the next level with Star Wars pinball.
