It's now available on the Eshop and comes with the free table Sorcerers Lair. Not only that though, the brand new Carnivals & Legends pack containing Adventure Land and Son of Zeus tables are also free to download until the 18th . Superb!

Stern Pinball Arcade also releases today and comes with a free table, Mary Shelly's Frankenstein I believe.

So even if you don't want to spend a penny you've still got 4 free pinball tables for your Switch and best of all they use up very little space .

Is SA Eshop cheapest for tables yeah?

I haven't made a SA account yet so I'm not sure. Need to get round to that. How do you avoid foreign transaction fees though?

Playing in vertical mode with HD Rumble feels amazing,tops 4k for sure.

I picked up Stern Pinball physical last week and really enjoying it so far. It has crashed once in many hours of play, so I’ll be interested in the reviews. Loading times are a bit long. I would have preferred Pinball Arcade but will take what I can get.

Downloaded Pinball FX3 this morning with the free tables, and the Universal and Alien ones too. Can’t wait to finish work and try them out.

Man this game is superb. I was already a big fan of Zen Pinball, first on Android then on Wii U but FX 3 takes it to a whole new level. I've not really got to grips with what everything means yet but the way the leaderboards, challenges and levelling up is integrated into the game is brilliant. Plus the HD Rumble adds so much to the experience. I've just finished playing docked with the Pro controller and it feels so good. Still it can't beat holding it vertically with touch controls and feeling the rumble from the single Joy-con. That's now added another new way to play the Switch. I'm going to try playing with the Switch sitting vertical in my stand with the Pro. Love it!

@kobashi100 Give it a shot. It's free after all. File size is very small as well so you can download it quickly and delete it if the framerate isn't good enough for you. I personally didn't notice any difference between Stern and FX3. Both played well in handheld mode.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

I'm not familiar with pinball games at all and I have a question. I have seen that in the game there are objectives like in a common videogame with some sort of story (for example the stories about Hercules in Son of Zeus). Is it just a way to get high score faster or the game is intended to follow an actual sequence of events and to get to an actual good ending and then stops? I have always thought that pinball were just endless score chasers but I'm not sure anymore. I don't think I could really beat most of the objectives, but I can keep the ball at play for satisfying (at least to me) amounts of time and get rather satisfying scores that way (again, at least to me, a completely newbie in this genre - I don't care about online modes so I don't know what the average score is)

I used to be a ripple user like you, then I took The Arrow in the knee

I got both and I notice the difference. Stern undocked feels much smoother. FX visually is stunning but man I hope they patch it soon.

Glad to her zen working on a patch for 60fps undocked. Also docked isn't 1080p at the moment

OorWullie

@kobashi100 That's good to know. I didn't notice it initially but after you mentioned it and I went from docked to undocked it is very noticeable. Those guys at Zen are great, any questions or issues they reply very quickly.

One issue me and my mate have, well he has but it affects me too. He is on Xbox and I can see him on leaderboards and enter his tournaments, but he can't see me or any other Nintendo players. Even when in his tournament. He has cross play turned on so not sure what the issue is there. Zen are looking into to it apparently.

@OorWullie that’s strange I hope they fix it. How do you search for people on the leaderboards?

I agree that the Zen guys are very responsive to any questions.

Ugh...starting to hate this game...I keep losing the ball because it keeps going towards the outer edges or whatever. Sometime's I lose it right at the start of the game which is like....the most bs thing ever.
