Earlier this week Zen Studios clarified to us that pinball news "is coming soon" for Wii U, as we followed up on some vocal discontent that had been expressed by some Nintendo gamers on the developer's forums. The company has been good on its word, having today confirmed that the latest new table in Zen Pinball 2 will indeed come to the Wii U version of the app.
The Walking Dead is that new table, based on the hugely popular game series from Telltale Games. It incorporates elements from the five chapters of season one, including voice acting from the original cast; it'll arrive as extra content on 28th August, just one day after most other systems and at the same time as on iOS / Android. Pricing hasn't been confirmed as yet, but we'd expect it to be in line with other single-table options in the app.
Zen Pinball 2 is a fairly unique app on the eShop, as it's free to download and has multiple tables that you can trial and then buy either individually or in packs. Some criticism has centred on new tables of recent months that have skipped the Wii U version, but this is certainly a positive step in the right direction.
You can see more screens of the new table below — will you be tempted to pick this up?
