With AC/DC Pinball under their belt this year, Stern moves ahead with their next project which takes us back to a comic book theme. They had been dropping some hints about it with questions on their Facebook page for a while and this great trailer which was just published today confirms it, with a sneak peek at the playfield drawings as well.Comic book themes seem to go by pretty well in the virtual pinball arena, like with Pinball FX2 which has some Marvel themed tables already. I have heard that this will employ an LCD screen which would be a first for Stern but that will probably stay a rumor for now. Beyond this, I’m sure more details are forthcoming since Summer is right around the corner soon so stay tuned.
So what is your opinion on the theme so far? Good, bad, whatever? X-Men does have a wide appeal and a lot of content to pull from so if the design is fun to play I imagine it will do well out in the wild.
