Are you a Pinball fan? Do you like Marvel Comics or The Walking Dead? Then, get ready for a big update to Zen Pinball 2 on Wii U. On August 28, 2014, Zen Studios will bring four new tables to the game as DLC: Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool, Doctor Strange, and The Walking Dead. You can download them for $2.99 each.
Deadpool: Featuring the supreme voice talents of the one and only Nolan North as Marvel’s notorious character, Deadpool, this table captures the acerbic, fourth wall-crushing attitude of the character as well as feature supporting characters from his universe, including Blind Al, Weasel, and Lil’ Deadpool. Deadpool’s pinball debut features a dynamic table that will switch at his whim, quick-time events, a “Blind Mode” courtesy of Blind Al in which only the ball, flippers and target lanes are visible, and even a mode where the player can help Deadpool take down some of his most nefarious enemies: raging comic book fans!
Doctor Strange: Adapted from 50 years of Marvel’s Doctor Strange comic books, the greatest powers of the occult, both from our own world and the darkest dimensions in existence, are combining their forces to take over Earth. And only one man can stop them — Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme! With the help of the beautiful Clea and his faithful servant Wong, the Master of the Mystic Arts faces his greatest challenge ever in Doctor Strange pinball.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy pinball brings all five members of the galaxy’s greatest crew of warriors to their pinball universe as they combat Ronan the Accuser. Beginning with a four-ball multiball as players escape the Kyln, the Guardians of the Galaxy pinball table starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up. The table showcases the individual strengths of each member of the Guardians of the Galaxy team, including Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and the group’s wild card, Rocket Raccoon, as well as landmark battles from the comics and film, including fights against Yondu and the Ravagers, Nebula, and Ronan himself.
The Walking Dead: Zen Studios, Telltale Games, Robert Kirkman and Skybound have worked together on each detail of the table design, sharing ideas and fusing their passion to bring the story and choice-driven gameplay of The Walking Dead: Season One journey to the playfield. Touring locations from Clementine’s treehouse and Everett’s pharmacy in Macon, all the way down the tracks to the walker-infested streets of Savannah, players will find an authentic tour of Season One capturing the peril and drama of Lee and Clementine’s story.
