Zen announces Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force

An all-new pack of tables is coming to Zen Studios’ excellent Star Wars Pinball. Get ready to balance the Force…

“The ancient Jedi prophecy foretold one who would bring balance to the Force. They probably didn’t imagine that balance would come in the form of two huge, equally matched armadas engaged in desperate battle above Endor, or in the form of a rogue Jedi nearly eliminating his own order and then, much later, his Sith master,” said Neil Sorens, Zen Studios Creative Director. “If those prophets could have seen this all come to pass in the new Balance of the Force pinball tables, they’d be flipping out.”

I see what you did there Neil.

The Star Wars pinball tables that’ve been released so far have pretty much been on par with Zen’s other tables for licensed and non-licensed properties alike- which is to say that they’re fantastic. Zen’s pinball tables, no matter what theme they hold, have a certain flair to them that you just don’t find in any other pinball sim. And that’s not to mention that they’re balanced almost perfectly and have a realism that puts them almost on par with an actual, physical table that you’d find in an arcade… if there were any arcades.

Here’s what you can expect to get in the Balance of the Force pack:

  • The fate of the galaxy is in your hands! Help the rebellion destroy the Sith and the fearsome Death Star in the Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi table. Aid Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, R2-D2, and C-3PO in their fight against the Sith in order to restore peace to the galaxy.
  • Pay tribute to the Dark Lord of the Sith in a table dedicated to Darth Vader. Use the dark side of the Force to mercilessly pursue the Jedi and Rebel Alliance and face off with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker.
  • Support the Rebel Alliance’s Fleet or the Galactic Empire’s Armada, as you lead your side to victory in Star Wars™: Starfighter Assault. The table features legendary Starfighters like the X-wing and TIE Fighter, and iconic vessels like the Millennium Falcon and the Death Star II.

It’ll be out some time this Fall- till then, may the Force be with you.
