Avengers bundle arrives on Marvel Pinball

Firstly, apologies for the lack of news articles on PSNation lately. Once real life stops getting in the way, normal service will be resumed (and much more).

Now onto the story; Zen Studios have announced yet another Marvel-themed package for their excellent pinball games. It’s named Avengers Chronicles and one of the four bundled tables focuses on the titular group’s upcoming summer blockbuster.

Mel Kirk of Zen Studios was certainly pleased with the ongoing relationship with Marvel, a sentiment that PSNation wholeheartedly agrees with based on the previous tables. Here’s what he had to say:

“The collaboration between Zen Studios and Marvel Entertainment is a brilliant display of passion, excitement and energy. Avengers Chronicles represents a historic moment in videogame pinball.”

The tables will be available as DLC for the PS3 version of Marvel Pinball, but for PlayStation Vita, they will be a standalone game. Of course, trophies (yo!), leaderboards and table guides will all be included.

Finally, here is a description of each table from the developer’s mouth, as well as some screenshots for you to feast your eyes upon:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

As of yet, no price or release date has been announced.
