Hot on the tails of another Marvel license in pinball comes another. This summer was X-Men Pinball but next up is….the Avengers Pinball. Yes, the same Avengers that did some blockbuster business early this year and is available on video now through your friendly local or digital video service. Talk about this particular franchise becoming a full-fledged pinball machine (as opposed to the virtual pinball Avenger tables out there) has been around for a while but only now has it been confirmed, as Pinballnews.com shows. Not much is known about it yet except that the designer is George Gomez whose resume I probably do not need to repeat here. Could this be the fabled game which may use an LCD screen by Stern? We heard that rumor prior to X-Men but that didn’t turn out to be true in X-Men. We will know soon enough – most likely not at IAAPA (but who knows, this is going to be the first in a long time where two competing pinball companies of this caliber will have their products at the same show, with Jersey Jack Pinball setting up a booth) but probably at another upcoming show like EAG that is in London in January.
I know we can’t say much not having seen an actual table but at least from the angle of where the licensing is going, how do you feel about two Marvel pinball games back-to-back?
Awesome news! I was holding out for X-Men LE, but will now go with the Pro model and save my pennies for this.
