After months of coercion, threats, and highly inappropriate late night texts (seriously, Wade, how can you really expect anyone to physically be able to do that with a duck!?), Zen Studios have agreed to create a virtual pinball table for the one and only Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. Coming to Zen Studios pinball platforms on console, mobile and PC, the table will offer exciting pinball action, true-to-the-character gameplay, and may actually afford the team at Zen some peace and quiet when it releases.

 

In all seriousness (well, some seriousness, at least), Zen Studios is extremely excited to be working with the fine folks at Marvel to bring Deadpool fans a pinball experience that is as true to the character as you can get. Featuring the supreme voice talents of the one and only Nolan North as Deadpool, this table will capture the acerbic, fourth wall-crushing attitude of the character as well as feature supporting characters from the Deadpool universe, including Blind Al, Weasel, Lil’ Deadpool, and other characters from Deadpool’s universe. Please humor the Merc with a Mouth by watching the trailer below, will ya?

 

 

 

Deadpool’s pinball debut features a dynamic table that will switch at his whim, quick-time events, a “Blind Mode” courtesy of Blind Al in which only the ball, flippers and target lanes are visible, and even a mode where the player can help Deadpool take down some of his most nefarious enemies: raging comic book fans!

 

 

 

 

 

Dust off your dancing shoes and synchronize your watches, because it’s about to go down! 

 

Pinball FX2 for Xbox 360 and Steam
Zen Pinball 2 for PS3, PS4, & PS Vita: Available now in North America and Europe

We at Zen Studios are so excited to announce our latest pinball collaboration! We have partnered with Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman to create a digital pinball table based on the award-winning The Walking Dead game series! This new table will bring the story and choice-driven gameplay of The Walking Dead: Season One journey to the playfield. Touring locations like Clementine’s treehouse, Everett’s pharmacy in Macon  and down the tracks to the walker-infested streets of Savannah, players will find an authentic experience inspired by Season One, capturing the peril and drama of Lee and Clementine’s story.

 

The Walking Dead pinball table features choice-driven gameplay across each of Season One’s five episodes, along with original story dialogue from the award-winning cast.  Scenarios include choosing who to save and who to leave behind in a walker attack, solving problems and raising morale within the group, searching for food and supplies, acquiring important tools, and navigating through the herd amidst an oncoming walker breach. Check out the trailer below to see the new table in action!

 

 

 

As huge fans of Telltale Games, we are extremely honored to be able to work with them to bring our fans a memorable, authentic pinball experience based on The Walking Dead. The table will be playable at this year’s E3 Expo and those in attendance can get a sneak peek at Telltale’s booth in the Concourse Hall.

 

The Walking Dead Pinball table will be available for download later this summer on Zen Studios pinball platforms across console, PC, and mobile stores. Stay tuned, we will post more details as we get closer to release this summer!

As a thank you to our fans, Zen Studios has decided that the new Star Wars™ Pinball: Heroes Within pack will include 4 tables instead of 3, and remain the same price as the previous packs.  The new Heroes Within pack will be available for download starting April 29th for $9.99 in North America and €9.99 in Europe on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and Steam.  Individual tables will be available for download on iOS, Google Play and Amazon for $1.99 each.

 

Light side or dark side?  Choose wisely and fulfill your destiny.

 

 

 
 

 

The past two years of Star Wars Pinball development have been tremendously rewarding.  Masters of the Force™ feels like the culmination of all that we have learned, and we are truly moved by this experience to create an epic finale to the series.

 

In case you missed posts on the other tables, make sure to check out trailers and screens for Han Solo, Star Wars™: Episode 4 A New Hope, and Star Wars™ Droids™.

 

Reminder when purchasing tables via PSN: If you’d like to play your new tables on PS3/PS Vita as well as PS4, you MUST purchase them on PS3 or Vita first, and then use the import feature to unlock tables on PS4 at no charge.

 

 

 

May the Force Be With You.
