If Zen Studios has made one thing clear, it’s that they excel in the art of ball physics. The leader in pinball video games announced today that they are translating their knowledge of small metal balls to larger white ones with the debut of Planet Minigolf for PSN.
“After successfully launching several pinball titles we decided to focus on expanding our library of games into different genres while staying true to the foundation that made our studio so successful,” said Zsolt Kigyossy, managing director for ZEN Studios.  “We’ve taken the same battle-tested ball-physics engine that was used to develop the ZEN Pinball franchise and applied it to Planet Minigolf resulting in the most true-to-life miniature golf experience available on PlayStation Network.”

Planet Minigolf will feature both single-player and multiplayer modes. The single-player campaign explores over 144 unique holes ripe with unusual hazards and interactive objects. Players can choose one of six customizable characters as they travel the world. The multiplayer suite includes a local hotseat mode as well as weekly tournaments and worldwide competitions. 

News on a release date or price point for Planet Minigolf has yet to be released.
