A set of Star Wars tables are set for pin sim "Zen Pinball 2" on PlayStation 3 and "Pinball FX 2" on Xbox 360, as well as the "Zen Pinball" games on Mac, iOS and Android.
Return to Hoth on this Episode V table for "Star Wars Pinball"
The sci-fi series is going through something of a renaissance at the moment, not just with excitement rising over an Abrams-helmed Episode VII and various spin-offs, but within the video game realm too.
Sure, "Star Wars: The Old Republic", a massively multiplayer online effort released late 2011, might not have attracted the massive amount of players that publisher Electronic Arts might have liked, but otherwise it has been doing quite well, what with the three Lego Star Wars games, and an impressive fan customization reinvigorating interest in 2005 PC release Knights of the Old Republic II.
The first batch of Star Wars pinball tables includes one for "Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back," complete with Luke vs Vader face-off, a table depicting "The Clone Wars," and third in celebration of iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett.
The Zen Pinball and Pinball FX series both hail from Hungarian developer Zen Studios, which has established itself as quite the pinball specialist.
Zen's February 5 announcement anticipates the arrival of "Star Wars Pinball" via download "in just a few short weeks."
