Marvel Pinball is coming, people, so if silverball isn't heroic enough for you, you're in luck. Marvel Pinball will be an expansion to Pinball FX 2 on Xbox Live, but a seperate game totally on The PlayStation Network. In the game, you'll "use your pinball wizardry to help Iron Man, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Blade save the world from the most notorious Super Villains on four beautifully crafted pinball tables." I'm not sure how playing pinball can possibly save the world, but I'm not going to worry about it too much.
“We are so honored to work with the greatest Super Heroes of all time, and have really focused our efforts into bringing each distinct personality to this one-of-a-kind pinball experience,” said Zsolt Kigyossy, Managing Director for ZEN Studios. “You will find each Marvel Pinball table captures the essence of each Super Hero, creating a game that is an authentic Marvel experience. This is just the beginning of Marvel Pinball; you can count on more of your favorite Marvel heroes and villains to be making appearances in the near future.”
You won't have to wait long either; you can expect Marvel Pinball to be released before the end of 2010.
