Hot on the heels of last month’s somewhat disappointing Fantastic Four table, ZEN Studios is already announcing a new Captain America table coming to XBLA’s Pinball FX2 platform and PSN the week after next.
I thought Fantastic Four was good, but I really wished that they had gone with a more fun Jack Kirby retro-style. The gameplay was also too easy, and after the simpler Mars table I was hoping for something more challenging like Rome or Blade. Cap looks very promising though- it’s got a retro World War II style which could be really neat. I’m hoping from some tougher modes and more secrets.
Press follows, if you need to be convinced that this will totally be worth three bucks.
EN Studios today announced Captain America as the next Super Hero to star on his own downloadable Marvel Pinball table from ZEN Studios on Xbox LIVE® Arcade and PlayStation®Network. Joining the Amazing Spider-Man, the Invincible Iron Man, Wolverine,Blade and the Fantastic Four Cap and friends are called upon to battle some of the world’s most dangerous Super Villains.
Set in the classic World War II environment inspired by Ed Brubaker’s Captain America 65th Anniversary Special, the table engages Cap, Bucky and members of the Howling Commandos in a full assault on Baron Zemo’s castle, where Zemo’s Death Ray and canisters of Adhesive X must be neutralized. As the game progresses, Cap will need to free his friends in the Howling Commandos and defeat several low-level missions as he works to confront the Sleeper before taking the Cosmic Cube from the Red Skull in the final battle.
The Captain America table follows richly detailed designs and offers another action-packed adventure to the critically acclaimed Marvel Pinball tables already available. For the latest Marvel Pinball news and more details on the Captain America table, visit www.marvelpinball.com.
Captain America will seamlessly integrate into the Pinball FX2 platform on Xbox LIVE® Arcade, and Marvel Pinball platform on PlayStation®Network, with full social feature support. “Fantastic Four” will also feature new Achievements and Trophies, operators menu and rule sheet.
Captain America will be available on June 28, 2011 for PlayStation®Network and June 29, 2011 for Xbox LIVE®Arcade.
