Zen Pinball 2 Finds the Force, Loses It Again

Posted by Sammy Barker

Into the garbage chute

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, developer Zen Studios revealed that it was working on a new batch of Star Wars themed tables for its free PlayStation 3 and Vita application Zen Pinball 2 – but the announcement was yanked faster than the Millennium Falcon in hyperspace. Still, there’s nothing stopping us from relaying what we read.

The developer has teamed up with LucasArts to create a slew of new layouts based on the epic sci-fi franchise. The first pack – due out this month – will feature tables inspired by Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. More designs are in the works, but are not set to be unveiled until later in the year.

There was a teaser trailer, but that’s been pulled too. Just imagine dramatic music, images of Luke Skywalker, and silver balls riding up ramps, and you should get the general idea.

I think I'm enjoying Zen Pinball enough to purchase, since my demo ends before I get to BALL 2..

I've barely touched the PSN release since 2 came out.

The Android version gets plenty of play on my Note 2 though, so hopefully these tables go multiplatform!

@KALofKRYPTON Oh, I'm sure they will. It's weird — I thought I'd play the hell out of Zen Pinball 2 too, but, even though I think it's great, I've hardly touched it either. Need to get back into it.

I thought the same, but none of the ZP2 tables really appealed, I'm not a huge Marvel fan either (Peter Parker Spider-Man and The Clone Saga saw to that) so didn't invest in any new tables.
To be honest it suits being on a mobile for me (as it would be with the Vita, no doubt) and I've done a lot better on my favourite table (Tesla) playing it on my phone than I did on a big screen.

After Star Wars, I'd like to see some Star Trek tables based on TOS, TNG, Voyager, DS9 and the new reboot films.

Here's the trailer, the table looks good!

Hoth, Bespin, lightsaber!

Also- "coming to digital stores everywhere"- good news!

@craigun

Yeah, I'd love a DS9 table- I think The Pinball Arcade dev's are trying to license the old Next Gen' table though, so that could put pay to that.

A new 'JJ' Trek table would be unplayable, too much lens flare! ;-)
