Last week we first found out about the upcoming Star Wars Pinball, and today the guys at Zen Studios blasted out another email with a brand new trailer showing just how shockingly elaborate the game is going to be for a, uh, pinball game. The table shown in the trailer is from The Empire Strikes Back and takes place on the main deck of a Star Destroyer.

The developers mention activating "missions" in game by hitting all the letters to spell out "STAR WARS" at which point you can choose from five different scenes to play through before finally activating the "wizard mode" to battle Darth Vader himself. Take a look:

Next week they're giving us a detailed look at the Boba Fett (!) table, and hopefully we get a few more details on how all the auxiliary mechanics of the game work out. Judging from that trailer though, we're looking at the most weirdly elaborate pinball game I think I've ever seen... And I'm totally OK with that.

  • Odulin

    Ohh. I am looking forward to playing this table.

  • tarasis

    I can't believe I'm actually excited by this, but I am.

  • DotComCTO

    Wow! This looks very cool. I'll be keeping an eye out for this one!

  • François

    pants officially shat

  • Dave Marcoot

    Not a fan of all the 3D animations but still an instant buy for this pinball freak

  • Greyskull

    These will be integrated into the Zen Pinball app, right? BTW, if you don't have it, it comes with one pretty darned fun table for free.

    P.S. I already see these appearing in the Zen Pinball as IAPs "coming soon". Does this now ruin it for everyone?

    • toxiccheese

      I saw it there as well... And I am stoked! I prefer it as an IAP so I don't need to install yet another app.

  • Illuminerdy

    This game isn't free with no restrictions and doesn't give me a beeg while playing, wtf?

  • Marc Matranga

    Why didn't they use the voices from the movies?

  • sjleworthy

    I dunno. The original SW trilogy are my fav top films of all time, and i generally like starwars games, but this? Just dunno

  • Jerutix

    All the Zen Pinball tables are super intricate. I've played all the tables in their main app, and I am definitely not a pinball wizard. I usually can't ever complete a single mission, let alone "beat" the table.

  • James Burland

    It's light speed or hyper space, not 'hyper speed'. Seriously, this is such an obvious mistake.

    Failed Vader comments 🙁 , they made him look like a little sisi 🙁
    I will play the game but the star wars bastardization must stop 🙂

    Sex on a stick. Instabuy!

  • JCat_NY

  • markjames1138

    Hm, maybe. Why not real voices?
