All Articles: Zen Pinball 2
You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, but do you recall that Zen Pinball 2 is now available on the PlayStation Store?
The PS3 pinball simulation is now available to download for the PS4. If you’ve never played it before, there are plenty of additional tables to add to the free game. But if you’ve already got a complete collection of PS3 tables, they can now be imported into the PS4 version:
Zen Pinball 2 (Free)
All of your favorite pinball tables are now available on the PlayStation 4 system! Download the free Zen Pinball 2 platform and access the best pinball library available. The fantasy-themed “Sorcerer’s Lair” table is available for free play for all players!
That’s it for yesterday’s update, but be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a rundown this week’s new game add-ons.
I don’t want to tell Nintendo how to run their business, but maybe “Nintendo Download Day” shouldn’t be on Thursday if the majority of games published by Nintendo are released on Sunday. Just look at the two biggest games in this week’s update: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. They’re both coming to the 3DS eShop this week (and are technically part of today’s Nintendo Download), but you won’t be able to download either one until Sunday, March 24.
If bustin’ ghosts as Mario’s kid brother or exploring dungeons as your favorite Pokemon doesn’t thrill you, there is a new game you can download today: Zen Studios’ Zen Pinball 2. It’s now available on the Wii U eShop along with most of the previously released DLC tables including Marvel Pinball and Plants vs Zombies table.
More information on these new releases, as well as a trio of additional games that will be available today, is available after the break. (more…)
It’s another big day for the PSN as a treasure trove of new games and add-ons are now available on the PlayStation Store. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Leading off the week is the “Star Wars Pinball” add-on for Zen Pinball 2. The collection includes three tables: one starring everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett; one based on The Empire Strikes Back; and one based on the Clone Wars cartoon.
Also available this week is the Game of the Year Edition of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, as well as Uncharted 3 Multiplayer, a standalone download of Uncharted 3’s multiplayer mode. The free-to-play version caps your progress at Level 15, but a paid version allows you to rack up as many levels as you can.
Let’s see, what else… There’s the classic RPG Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, that’s available in the PSone Classic section. And speaking of classic RPGs, the “Dawnguard” expansion is now available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Zen Studios will be bringing three Star Wars-themed pinball tables to a download service near you this month. Star Wars Pinball will be available as a standalone app on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Android Store. It’ll also be released as downloadable content for Pinball FX 2 (Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8), Zen Pinball 2 (PlayStation Network, Vita, Mac App Store), and Zen Pinball (Apple App Store, Google Play).
“It’s been over 30 years since Star Wars, videogames, and solid state pinball all burst onto the entertainment scene, and their popularity endures today. We’re excited to be combining all three for the very first time,” said Neil Sorens, Zen Studios’ Creative Director. “Our designers are huge Star Wars fans, and you can expect every detail in every table to reflect their passion for the Star Wars universe.”
The three tables will be based on three of the biggest names in Star Wars history: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Screenshots and more details can be found at the game’s official site, StarWarsPinball.com.
Approve of this, I do.
Zen Pinball 2 will be added to Wii U eShop this month
Zen Studios has announced that their pinball sim, Zen Pinball 2, will be available to download from the Wii U eShop sometime in December.
The base game will be a free download, but individual tables will have to be purchased separately. However, to give gamers a better idea of what a table will play like, Zen will offer a demo version of every table, including the Plants vs Zombies and Marvel Pinball-themed tables.
You can check out the Wii U-centric trailer above and marvel at the game’s platform-specific features including “controlling the plunger on the touch screen, rotating camera views, accessing information via the dot matrix, and Free View control by tilting the Wii U GamePad.”
