A few days ago I was thinking to myself that with Avengers: Age of Ultron just weeks away from releasing to theaters, it should be about time for us to hear that Zen Studios is working on a tie-in pinball table for its Zen Pinball 2 and Pinball FX2 platforms. Proving again that whatever I think about hard enough happens, today the studio announced that it is indeed about to release an Ultron table. You're welcome, Internet! Here's Bobby Loertscher at the Zen Studios blog to explain what's in store for Earth's mightiest pinball heroes:
The Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron table will allow players to relive the struggle of Earth’s mightiest heroes, including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye against Ultron and his seemingly endless army. The table features dedicated game modes for each member of the Avengers team, including a first-person sharpshooting mini-game starring Hawkeye, a spectacular aerial melee combat sequence between Iron Man and Ultron, and selectable difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, or Hard) to cater to each player’s individual skill level.
The Marvel license has been excellent to Zen's creative output and I'm excited to see how they've linked the movie with their new table. Of course, I'm going to have to wait until after I see the movie to play it. I caved and tried Zen's Guardians of the Galaxy table before I saw that movie and ended up slightly spoiled on a few things. The pinball table releases across Zen's platforms starting April 21, but the movie it's based on doesn't release in North America until May 1. That's going to be a long week, I think.
