Jersey Jack Pinball has surprised us by taking a production Wizard of Oz Pinball machine to E3. As such, some videos are already out on the net showing the game in action (in narrowvision unfortunately). But I think it’s great that JJP is reaching out to new players at a convention where the focus is typically on home console gaming. These videos only show the attract mode, with an impressive array of multi-colored LEDs, which once again shows a feature they have been willing to bring to pinball that has otherwise been ignored.

Also they are not alone in representing coin-op. Pac-Man Battle Royale and Pac-Man’s Arcade Party is there, possibly something else but I am not sure yet. Also Adrenaline Amusements is at the show with their TouchFX games too. Stay tuned for more as we find it out. Below is from the Namco booth where Adrianne Curry, first winner of America’s Next Top Model checks out the game with Sam Ven of Namco and a couple others
UPDATE: From a retweet by ArcadeHunters, the arcade version of Tank! Tank! Tank! is at E3, give players a taste of how different it will be from the WiiU version
Tank! Tank! Tank! is getting a WiiU release. That’s cool, I guess.
Wow – I didn’t realise all the LEDs would be multicoloured.
That’s a step forward – and certainly a plus for a colour-themed game like this.
I’ve been hoping that someone would use multi-colored LEDs for some time now, I’m glad to see it finally come along since its much overdue.
Tank tank tank’s getting a wiiu release?! That’s ok I guess though not sure what to make of it. It still won’t be anything like the arcade version though especially with the long high retangle screen, force feeback from the seats and multiplayers (heard that wiiu’s performance slows due to extra processing power for image display on the wiiu pads and main TV screen). Great if you’ve missed out on the original arcade release. There’s a TTT game near me at my arcade but it’s not as good now due to only being just a twin unit as it used to have 4 units altogether which were much better oh well :-/
The stories about the Wii U sound serious for Nintendo – looks like they messed up big time with the systems overall performance (CG slow down and 2-hour battery life!!!!)
Wonder if this could mark a major development in the consumer scene? That said I did like some of the new game teasers I saw.
