43w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has shared a video trailer today announcing that Star Wars Pinball launches on PS3 and PS Vita this month.
To quote: Zen Studios has been making pinball games for nearly a decade now, and today is one of the most exciting pinball moments for our studio! We are extremely excited to announce that Star Wars is coming to Zen Pinball 2!
Zen Studios has been working closely with LucasArts to create an amazing collection of videogame pinball tables set in a galaxy far, far away!
The first pack of tables include Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Beyond these exciting tables, there are seven others in production as we speak, all to be revealed as 2013 unfolds.
Each table features a different iconic moment from the Star Wars universe, with interactive 3D characters and unique gameplay. If you have not yet downloaded Zen Pinball 2, it is pretty easy to do.
The free download will give you access to a great library of pinball content, where you can download demos for each table and pick which you'd like to buy. All content is cross-buy entitled on PS3 and PS Vita.
162w ago - LucasArts Producer Brett Rector has confirmed that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II hits PS3 Tuesday and detailed some of the video game's enhancements today.
To quote: One of the most exciting days for a video-game developer is release day, and for those of us who worked on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, October 26th, 2010 is our day.
It's one we've been building up to since the release of the original Star Wars: The Force Unleashed back in 2008. Starkiller has returned as the game's protagonist, and he's more bad-ass than ever.
But is he really Starkiller? If you played the first game then you know he sacrificed himself to save key members of the Rebellion he helped start. So how is it possible that Starkiller is alive?
Not one to stay idle, Darth Vader has been doing some tinkering in a secret laboratory on Kamino, the cloning planet from Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones. I think you can see where I'm going with this.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II is all about a personal journey, one where you attempt to unravel the mystery behind whether Starkiller's a clone or not. The first game was all about redemption; the second is about identity and searching for the truth....
