If you haven't heard yet, Zen Studio's latest set of Pinball tables will be based on the Star Wars series. Star Wars Pinball's first pack of tables will consist of a set of three different tables; one based on the bounty hunter, Boba Fett; one based on The Empire Strikes Back; and one based on the Clone Wars series.
Today, Zen Studios has highlighted some details behind the Empire Strikes Back table. The table will be set on the bridge of the Empire's flagship Star Destroyer, The Executor, with events from the movie being recreated in the dot matrix display when different missions are activated during gameplay.
As for different 3D objects that appear around the table, you'll see the likes of an AT-AT walker (with a circling snow speeder), a Tie Fighter, an ion cannon, and the dueling lightsabers of Luke and Darth Vader. Similar to some of Zen's previous tables, you'll activate missions by hitting the center bank to spell out a word (this time it's "Star Wars"), and after you'll select one of 5 missions to complete. Upon completion of all 5 missions, you'll finally activate Wizard mode and experience the epic lightsaber battle between Luke and Darth Vader.
Interestingly enough, this will be the first of Zen's pinball tables to include mission checkpoints, which should make it easier to finish missions instead of having to restart them every time you lose a ball.
Star Wars Pinball is expected to release later this month on PSN (as cross-buy content on PS3 and Vita), XBLA, Windows 8, iOS, and Google Play.
