Remember the movie Half Baked, with Dave Chappelle? And remember the small role Jon Stewart played as a stereotypical enhancement smoker? That’s how I feel talking about 3D games and movies sometimes. Have you ever played pinball…… in 3D??
Hopefully enough of you saw Half Baked back in the day and got my joke. Either way, it was announced this morning that Zen Pinball 3D is heading to the 3DS eShop this fall with four table designs including Earth Defense, Shaman, Excalibur, and El Dorado.
“Releasing Zen Pinball on a Nintendo platform marks an amazing milestone for Zen Studios. We are really excited for Nintendo fans to experience one of our greatest passions – the timeless game of pinball!” said Mel Kirk, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations. “Playing pinball in 3D is killer, it’s like the game has been totally reinvented, and a whole new world opens up right before your eyes.”
Zen Pinball 3D will feature local “hot seat” multiplayer, which means you can sit in a circle with your friends and pass the system around by turn. The scores you achieve will be reflected in online leader boards and table rankings so your high scores are shared with everyone who plays.
