Zen Studios have finally delivered something Switch owners have been after for a while, the first Star Wars game on the system, though it’s not Battlefront or even the upcoming Jedi: Fallen Order, but Star Wars Pinball, a game that many people have requested come to the platform.
Star Wars fans of all generations will enjoy tables centered around adapting movie and TV show content, iconic characters, memorable locations, and general Star Wars themes
“As soon as we announced Pinball FX3 for Nintendo Switch in 2017, the main question we always received from fans was ‘where’s Star Wars?’,” says Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios. “We’re thrilled to bring the Star Wars Pinball experience to fans who have been eager for its arrival on Nintendo Switch. Combining the amazing Star Wars Pinball collection with the innovative hardware features available on Nintendo Switch provides a really outstanding experience in the home, on the road or anywhere else in the galaxy.”
Players will be able to experience tables inspired by events from all of the main line Star Wars movies, the solo ones including Solo: A Star Wars Story, the animated shows such as Clone Wars and Rebels and with classic characters to boot.
Star Wars Pinball will debut with its entire collection of 19 digital pinball tables that span all three Star Wars eras and will take full advantage of the Nintendo Switch’s unique functionalities, like HD Rumble and vertical play orientation. In addition to its digital availability through the Nintendo eShop, Star Wars Pinball will also hit retail shelves for the first time ever as a physical product, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
The game will arrive both digitally and in-stores on September 13th, so a little while away, but until then, the force will be with you… always.
