Star Wars Pinball

Zen Pinball 2 has been available on the Wii U for a good while now, but eager fans will have noticed the absence of the most recent high profile tables to grace rival platforms — those from the Star Wars franchise. The offering on Wii U has a good range, but it's seemed like another piece of DLC that's been left out on Nintendo's system.

Thankfully, it does look as if this is an example of a delay rather than a permanent exclusion of Wii U, with Zen Studios answering a fan on Twitter to confirm that the popular tables are being developed for the Wii U eShop, along with fixes to some other issues.

In terms of the existing issues, we'd certainly hope for a more streamlined purchasing option — although that's likely to be largely in Nintendo's hands with the eShop infrastructure — as well as improvement on some occasional connection issues with the leaderboards. While an enticing download on the Wii U store — with price reductions confirmed for this week's download update in Europe — the addition of these tables will certainly be a welcome boost.
