FarSight Studios Presents: The Pinball Arcade

We've been waiting a long time for news about the next release in the Pinball Hall of Fame series. I had thought that FarSight Studios would release a version of The Gottlieb Collection but news of that quickly faded. But just a few days ago FarSight announced "The Pinball Arcade" It will be a collection of DLC games for multiple platforms including the Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, Nintendo 3DS and even on Android and iPhone. They are also going to have games from, Gottlieb, Bally, Williams and for the first time Stern Pinball will be included. In the trailer above you'll see they have Pat Lawlor's Ripley's Believe it Or Not as one of the launch titles. I doubt they would be able to get any of the movie licensed games like Lord of The Rings or even stuff like Elvis due to the music rights. You could do NASCAR if you released it under the European name, Grand Prix and took out the TERRIBLE cover of "I Can't Drive 55" then I guess you could do that.

Personally I hope we'll see some Attack From Mars, Black Knight 2000, Junkyard and Fish Tales. So hopefully FarSight will keep up the DLC for years to come and be able to compete with Pinball FX and Zen Pinball.
