Zen Studios is bringing its Zen Pinball series to the Nintendo 3DS via the eShop this fall. The game will offer hot seat multiplayer, online leaderboards and four different tables on which to flip your balls into various receptacles.
Earth Defense is a sci-fi themed table that pits the player against invading aliens in an attempt to defend Earth. Shamen sees players masting the art of nature sorcery. Excalibur is an Arthurian-themed table. And Eldorado sees players uncovering the mysteries of ancient civilization by flipping balls into holes.
The game's release on 3DS will mean that the developer has at least one pinball game on each of the "big three's" platforms -- Pinball FX and Pinball FX 2 on Microsoft's 360, Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball on Sony's PS3 and now Zen Pinball 3D on Nintendo's 3DS. A version of Zen Pinball is also available for Nvidia Tegra-equipped Android smartphones and tablets.
"Releasing Zen Pinball on a Nintendo platform marks an amazing milestone for Zen Studios," said Mel Kirk, VP of marketing and PR. "We are really excited for Nintendo fans to experience one of our greatest passions -- the timeless game of pinball. Playing pinball in 3D is killer. It's like the game has been totally reinvented, and a whole new world opens up right before your eyes."
Zen Pinball 3D will release via the eShop this fall for an as yet undisclosed price.
