Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within announced

Zen Studios has announced that more Star Wars Pinball tables will be coming to Pinball FX2. Heroes Within will contain for new tables, all focusing on our favorite heroes from the saga. First up we have the Han Solo table, where the action takes place on the Millennium Falcon. The titular smuggler and his buddy Chewbacca are heading to the Death Star, but not everything is going as planned.

R2-D2 and C-3PO get their own time to shine on the Droids table. They’re on their way to deliver the Death Star plans, and it’s up to you to guide them to safety. Episode IV: A New Hope gets its own table, focusing on the memorable moments from the first film leading up to the destruction of the Death Star. Masters of the Force is a table dedicated to the most powerful beings to wield lightsabers, both good and evil. Star Wars Pinball: Heroes Within will be available this spring. Check out the Han Solo trailer above, and screens from the tables after the jump.

EA acquires rights to develop Star Wars games; why that’s a good thing

ea_starwars

The shutdown of LucasArts by Disney early last month left many wondering about the fate of the Star Wars games. Disney had previously stated that their focus would be directed toward social games, and the with the demise of LucasArts fans wondered if all hope was lost. Who would save us from a sea of Star Wars Facebook and mobile games? Then an unlikely hero emerged. EA stepped in.

The announcement came yesterday to mixed reception. Some were optimistic, others were quick to point out EA’s reputation as the Consumerist’s Worst Company In America. On Twitter the #starwarsnextgen hash tag began to trend with ideas for new Star Wars titles, the majority coupling Star Wars Battlefront III with the Battlefield series engine, EA DICE at the helm. Others clamored for a new, non-MMO installment to the Knights of the Old Republic series.

Regardless of how you feel, it’s a very exciting time to be a Star Wars fan and a gamer. With LucasArts’ relatively poor showing the last 5-8 years there’s really only one direction Star Wars games can go. Up. So let’s take a few minutes to assess just why EA is a great choice for the franchise, and take a few more to note some potential caveats as well.

Zen Studios, makers of Pinball FX 2, is releasing a trio of Star Wars pinball tables this Wednesday, in what will be the first group of many tables to come, much how the studio has released multiple packs of pinball tables from the Marvel comics universe. These Star Wars tables, which include a table for Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, a table designed around the Clone Wars cartoon show, and a table in honor of infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, are all worthy additions to the ever-expanding body of content available for Pinball FX2. It’s worth pointing out that only one of the three tables is focused on a specific film — this strategy of utilizing both iconic characters (Fett) and Expanded Universe content (Clone Wars) leaves Zen Studios with a range of choices in developing future Star Wars pinball tables.
