Avengers Assemble! Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles Will Rewrite Videogame Pinball History!
Tables based on 'Marvel's The Avengers' Movie, 'World War Hulk,' 'Fear Itself,' and 'The Infinity Gauntlet' Coming to Xbox LIVE® Arcade, PlayStation®Network, and PlayStation®Vita
Los Angeles, CA – March 16th, 2012 – Zen Studios and Marvel Entertainment today announced Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles, releasing this spring as DLC for Pinball FX2 on Xbox Live® Arcade, Marvel Pinball on PlayStation®Network, and a standalone download for PlayStation®Vita. Each table in this brand new four-table pack chronicles blockbuster events experienced by Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Marvel Pinball: Avengers Chronicles features four tables designed to tell a more cohesive story from the actual comic or movie material, while incorporating the most dramatic elements as gameplay. Fans of previous Marvel Pinball tables will experience a fresh approach to the critically acclaimed series, including deeper character interactions, more dialogue, and the most explosive action to date.
Table Overviews
Marvel's The Avengers table reflects the events of this summer's highly anticipated blockbuster, pitting all six Avengers against Loki's invasion of Earth. Nick Fury commands the team of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, each character represented by a customized ball that echoes his or her own appearance and power set.
Hulk Smash! After the Hulk's banishment to outer space, he returns to Manhattan to seek revenge against the Illuminati and wage war against the X-Men, Iron Man, the Fantastic Four and Doctor Strange in World War Hulk.
The Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock enlist Earth's Mightiest Heroes – including you – to recover the six Infinity Gems from Thanos and save the universe in The Infinity Gauntlet. The intense pinball atmosphere heightens as each Infinity Gem produces a special effect on the table, such as literally flipping the table upside down with the Reality Gem.
The Avengers must defeat Odin's long-banished brother, the Serpent, and free the world from the grip of chaos in Fear Itself. Featuring a table design unlike any to date, Fear Itself utilizes magnetic energy in ways no one has ever before experienced on a pinball table.
