Pinball FX3 will fire to the PlayStation 4 this summer, replacing Zen Pinball 2 as the home of Zen Studios’ fan-flippin’-tastic fantasy tabletop series. The game’s promising a wealth of new features and functions, though before we get into those it’s worth pointing out that the “majority” of your legacy table purchases will be importable into the new release for free. Unfortunately, the company doesn’t have the licenses for every surface, so a “handful” will sadly get left behind.

Nevertheless, here’s the elevator pitch: “Built around multiplayer-matchups, user-generated tournaments, and league play, Pinball FX3 is now so much more than just leaderboard rankings – the game elevates the competitive pinball spirit that has thrived since the early days of pinball more than a century ago.” Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of multiplayer, though: the developer’s also promising a robust single player suite which aims to make you a better flipper overall.

There’ll be new content launching day one alongside the title, including “some amazing properties from a brand new partner”. We wonder who it could be?
