The lights are on
Nintendo fans can stop worrying that Star Wars Pinball is trapped in the sarlacc pit of porting. Zen Studios has announced that the bundle, which includes three tables themed to a variety of characters and eras, is coming to Nintendo's eShop this July.
Star Wars Pinball will be available July 11 for $9.99. It includes tables based on Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Boba Fett. Wii U players can use the GamePad in a variety of unique ways, including playing the game on the pad's screen, or pushing the table's dot-matrix screen to the controller.
Take a look at our review of the Xbox 360 version of the game to get an idea of what each table offers. We'll take a look at the Wii U version of Star Wars Pinball and revisit the review if there are enough substantive differences between it and the previously released versions.
