Just when you thought that the dark side had dealt its final blow on the PS Vita, Zen Studios have announced today that they are bringing an ELEVENTH pinball table based on the Star Wars franchise to the PS Vita as part of Zen Pinball 2 and Star Wars pinball, extending their partnership with Lucasfilm…
The latest pinball table, Star Wars Pinball: Star Wars Rebels, based on the critically acclaimed animated TV show, Star Wars Rebels will be available across Zen’s pinball platforms, including Zen Pinball 2, and Star Wars Pinball, on the PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 amongst other formats on the week of April 27, 2015.
Star Wars Pinball: Star Wars Rebels will take players on a journey to a galaxy far, far away, teaming them up with the crew of the starship Ghost, including Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Zeb Orrelios, Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla and the grumpy astromech Droid Chopper as they join forces to take on the evil Empire. 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.
The Star Wars Pinball: Star Wars Rebels pinball table joins ten existing Star Wars Pinball tables on Zen’s pinball platforms, and marks the latest collaboration in the ongoing licensing relationship between Zen Studios and Lucasfilm.
“Players have been anxious to see if Zen Studios and Lucasfilm would continue creating new Star Wars pinball tables. I am happy to confirm that our teams are working together to do just that,” said Mel Kirk, VP of Publishing at Zen Studios. “Star Wars Rebels is set during a time period never explored in the films – between Episode III and Episode IV lies a 20 year stretch of Star Wars history. We’re delighted to be able to bring our own blend of pinball magic to this new phase of the Star Wars universe.”
As always, we would expect this to be Cross Buy across all PlayStation formats and compatible with the PlayStation TV.
