Star Wars Pinball Announced for Switch, Releases September

Zen Studios is bringing the Nintendo Switch its first Star Wars game later this year. The developer has announced a Star Wars Pinball Switch version is coming in September. And it will incorporate a slew of new features exclusive to the Nintendo’s hybrid.

Star Wars Pinball for Switch will incorporate all the game’s 19 previously released tables.

From the movies side of things, we’ll be getting Star Wars: Episode 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. As well as tables inspired by Rogue One and Solo. There are a couple of tables designed around the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels too.

Character specific tables were made based upon Han Solo, Darth Vader, Lando Calrissian in The Calrissian Chronicles, Boba Fett, and Droids. Two more featuring the locales of Ahch-To Island and the Battle of Mimban. And finally a trio of themed tables entitled Masters of the Force, Starfighter Assault, and Might of the First Order.

The Switch version of Star Wars Pinball will take advantage of the system in the ways that the PC and other consoles can’t. The game’s design incorporates the Switch’s HD Rumble and you also have the ability to play the game in vertical orientation.

There will also be a collection of new modes only available on the Switch version. In Galactic Struggle you’ll contribute points you earn to either the light side or the dark side, helping to aid players you’re aligned within a constant battle between Jedi and Sith around the globe.

Career mode was designed for short sessions in mind and tasks you with completing very specific mission across the title’s 19 tables. You’ll choose between Jedi or Sith here and progress through 50 career ranks. Along the way unlocking Force Powers to help bolster your high score efforts.

Zen Studios also designed the Cantina Jukebox for Switch players. Here, you can pull up any song you’ve heard in the game and jam out to it any time you like.

All the modes from prior games are here too, including Galactic Tournaments, League Play, Single Player in which high scores are king. You can download the game through the Nintendo eShop, or buy it for the first time physically, on September 13th.
