Zen Studios next Marvel pinball table will be inspired by the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron film! The table will bring the blockbuster action of the film to our pinball universe on PC, consoles, and mobile platforms:

Zen Pinball 2 for Mac: $2.99/€2,99/£1.99. Release date TBA

Pinball FX2 for Steam & Xbox 360: $2,99/€2,99/£1.99. Available Wednesday April 22nd

Zen Pinball HD and Marvel Pinball for Android & Amazon: $1.99/€1,99/£1.49. Available Thursday April 23rd

Zen Pinball 2 for Wii U: Release date TBA


The Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron table will allow players to relive the struggle of Earth’s mightiest heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye against Ultron and his seemingly endless army. The table features dedicated game modes for each member of the Avengers team, including a first-person sharpshooting mini-game starring Hawkeye, a spectacular aerial melee combat sequence between Iron Man and Ultron, and selectable difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, or Hard) to cater to each player’s individual skill level.






As you know, we have created many other Marvel Pinball tables, but nothing is quite like getting to work on a table that is based on a big blockbuster movie like Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s both exhilarating and a bit overwhelming to base a pinball table on a film as it is being made! Often times, final decisions about the film (like costumes, lines, etc.) have not even been made while we’re designing the table, so we have to be able to change with the film as needed. It really keeps us on our toes! We also have to stay true to the filmmakers’ vision while still creating something uniquely fun. Piece of cake, right?


Timing a table release with a film’s release is always a challenge; we have to be careful that there are no leaks, and most of all, no movie spoilers! Marvel’s Avengers is a hulk of a franchise (pun intended!) and we cannot express how proud we are that Marvel trusts us to do the job well. We’re stoked to be a part of this and that we get to share it with all of you. We truly hope you enjoy this table, the film, and more Marvel adventures yet to come.


See you on the leaderboards!

We’re astronomically overjoyed to reveal our next pinball table, Star Wars™ Pinball: Star Wars Rebels™, based on the critically acclaimed animated TV show on Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels™.

The table will feature fully-animated starships including the Ghost and TIE fighters, a flaming engine thruster spindisk, Chopper’s own mini playfield, and seven exciting missions inspired by the show.

This new table is set during a time period never explored in the films, so we’re happy to be able to bring our own blend of pinball magic to this new phase of the Star Wars universe.


The table will be available across many of our pinball platforms, including Pinball FX2, Zen Pinball 2, and Star Wars™ Pinball, on console, PC, and mobile during the week of April 27, 2015, just in time for May the Fourth celebrations!
