Zen Studios has announced the release date for Zen Pinball 2 along with a teaser for a new pinball table.
The release date for Zen Pinball 2 is September 4th for the PS3 and the PS Vita. It is the upgrade to Zen Pinball with some improvements and new features. The game will feature cross play between the Vita and PS3 including leader boards. The ball physics have been upgraded as well as 3D support has been created. All the tables from Zen Pinball and Marvel Pinball will transfer over to Zen Pinball 2 and all new players will be able to audition any table before purchasing them.
The new table is based on a PopCap Game and more information, including exactly which game it will be based on, will be given at PAX Prime. PAX Prime is from Aug 31st to Sept 1st. Just taking a quick jump over to the PopCap website and seeing their “mega hits”, can at least give you an idea of what is to come. The company has made Bejeweled, Peggle, Hidden Object, Plants vs Zombies. My money is on Plants vs Zombies.
The new table is not exclusive to the Playstation platform. Pinball FX on the Xbox 360 will get the table on September 5th. Here’s the trailer for Zen Pinball 2.
