Zen Studios have announced via their official blog that Star Wars Pinball is coming to the Wii U eShop on July 11th. The tables will be released as a standalone product for Nintendo's latest console and will be priced at $9.99 / €9.99. The game includes three tables based on the beloved sci-fi franchise, including
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Here are a few excerpts from the announcement about some of the downloadable title's features:
Players can choose to support either the Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance with their high scores as the community fights for the Balance of the Force! The main game user interface will change dynamically, based on how the community chooses to support each side.
Star Wars Pinball supports the Wii U GamePad, allowing players to redirect the display to the GamePad screen from the TV and back. When used as the secondary display, the GamePad shows additional controls and info including the dot matrix, scores, and challenge information.
Additional game features include in-game challenges and score notifications, an XP progression system allowing players to move up the ranks based on Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance support, Force Score and friends-based Team Score leaderboards, and several multiplayer modes.
