The Avengers getting the Pinball FX 2 treatment with Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles
Zen Studios and Marvel Entertainment have announced the latest collection of Pinball FX 2 tables, Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles. Just in time for the highly-anticipated Avengers movie coming out later this year, four new tables will be released as DLC this spring for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, and as a standalone download for the PlayStation Vita.
Marvel's The Avengers table will feature all the Avengers: Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, as they fight against Loki's invasion of Earth, based on the upcoming movie. Each Avenger will have their own customized ball that reflects their appearance and power set.
World War Hulk focuses on the big green beast's banishment to outer space and his return to Manhattan to seek revenge against the Illuminati and wage war against Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, X-Men and Iron Man. If you watch the trailer above, he isn't too happy about life at the moment.
The Infinity Gauntlet will put pinball players on a journey to recover six Infinity Gems from Thanos and save the universe. The Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock are the stars of this table. Each Infinity Gem will produce a special effect, including flipping the table upside down with the Reality Gem. That should be a treat.
Fear Itself will focus on the Avengers attempting to defeat the Serpent, who is Odin's long-banished brother, and ridding the world from chaos. This table promises magnetic energy being utilized like never before.
Zen Studios has pumped out plenty of pinball tables, and like I've said before there is the risk of the franchise becoming stale. However, the recent release of Epic Quest, which featured RPG elements, was a nice refresher to the franchise, and it sounds like these new tables will add to that.
