To quote: For well over two years now, I've had the honor of working with Zen Studios on video pinball tables based on Marvel characters and events. It seems only appropriate that Marvel Pinball: Civil War should release the week of Thanksgiving (as part of PSN's Zen Pinball 2) - 'cause I'm plenty thankful for these guys and everything they've done with Marvel Pinball so far.
