It’s been awhile since we’ve talked any serious videogaming here, but the Star Wars virtual pinball game sounds extremely cool. It’s got the tech, the Arcade1Up reasonable pricing (or so we hope), yet faithful arcade experience and it has Zen’s pinball wizardry programming, how can it now be good?
But this cool tech is also being used to bring Zen’s virtual pinball to life like never before. “We’re really optimizing the games with the hardware. We’re doing custom mapping, working on the controls, making sure the buttons feel right, and that the response on the accelerometers feels right. It’s going to feel like a brand-new game.,” shares an enthusiastic Kirk.Star Wars Pinball Readies to Change the Game at Home | StarWars.com
We already have bought a lot of the Zen Pinball tables, including the Nintendo Switch Star Wars tables (see: Star Wars Pinball for Nintendo Switch) a year ag.
Those tables are the real deal. And a ton of fun.
This new pinball table sounds like a cross between a real pinball table and videogame pinball. Now, whether or not it’s as cool as it sounds, I hope the price is right so we can buy one and put it in our entertainment room alongside the Arcade1Up NBA Jam that I’ve been wanting to buy.
This table is similar in design to the Marvel pinball table and that one is said to be priced between $500-600 (see: Arcade1Up Reveals Price Point for Marvel Pinball), which is inline with their arcade cabinets.
