Star Wars Pinball Wii U

Earlier in the Summer there was a disturbance on the Force, and we discovered that Star Wars Pinball was coming to the 3DS eShop. Zen Studios has now struck down the ratings agencies — though they may come back stronger than can possibly be imagined — and confirmed that the title will indeed arrive on the 3DS eShop in Europe and North America on 19th September.

Rubbish Star Wars riffs aside, it's been confirmed that this package will include the three tables that accompanied the Wii U eShop version — Star Wars Episode V : The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. On top of that there'll be stereoscopic 3D, of course, as well as the following features designed to keep you coming back for more.

Additional features include the Balance of the Force community feature, in game challenges and score notifications, an XP progression system allowing players to move up the ranks based on Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance support, Force Score and friends-based Team Score leaderboards.

There's set to be an attractive price, as well, with the title coming in lower than its HD brethren at $6.99 / €6.99. Whether extra tables such as the recently announced Balance of the Force pack will arrive is certainly doubtful, as previous entries on the 3DS have stuck rigidly to their day one tables.

Is the Force going to be strong with this one? We'll find out soon enough.
